Dear Mr. Agelii,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The only reference to the Clipper Charles S. Whitney we were able to locate was in the Lloyd’s Register of Britsh & Foriegn Shipping, Vol. II (1907). It indicated that the Charles S. Whitney name was changed to Lewis H. St. John (p.287).
For information about British ships, we suggest you contact The National Archives of the United Kingdom, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 4DU, United Kingdom. The website is http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/.
Also, please contact the Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre Archives & Library at https://hec.lrfoundation.org.uk/archive-library. They have records pertaining to British shipping.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
