The same burgee was already included in the 1881 Lloyd's register, the first one to have a register for yacht clubs, but 1882 was the first to list the establishing date.

British yachts fly the national maritime flag (undefaced red ensign), and indeed they did so already in 1881. Flaggenbuch 1905 agrees that it does so. However, 1890 was the last year Lloyd's still listed the Isle of Purbeck. Either the club close down, or they no longer included any yacht of a size worth mentioning.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 19 March 2021


The (German) Flaggenbuch 1905 states that the red ensign is used without badge (i.e. undefaced) by different yacht clubs based on a warrant and lists this yacht club as using the red ensign.
