Hi Alexandra. Out of curiousity, I did a couple Google searches, and wasn't finding ship information. So, I changed the search term to "Ship Lucy" and found a picture of the "clipper ship" you are interested in:http://www.artnet.com/artist/17485/samuel-walters.html
Changing the search term to "Clipper Ship Lucy," this site is about the painting, but it offers a brief history of the ship - including that it was built in Medford, MA, in 1870:http://www.artfact.com/catalog/viewLot.cfm?lotCode=Y3ngFKKU&...
It seems that "artwork" is famous.
It would be interesting to see a list of the ships built in Medford, MA.

P.S. I love the internet, in this search I found this site which might be of interest to others. It's about "Seafaring Women."http://www.sunymaritime.edu/stephenblucelibrary/pdfs/Seafari...
And, I found a site which is of interest to me - for health reasons. It's about a Dr. Lucy WILLS who found that folate helps with anemia.
