I am currently indexing 19th century sailing vessels registered at the port of Milford.
The source used being each vessel's Certificate of British Registry.
I will post from time to time some shipwrecks but here is a topical one.
The 'Defiance' was built at Church lake, Llanstadwell, Pembrokeshire according to
a certificate of Benjamin Scurlock the builder on 10 April 1843.
This 98 ton schooner had several masters until 11 Nov 1852 when a John Rowlands became her
The 'Defiance' was totally lost in December 1855 in the Clyde while on a voyage
from Glasgow to Rouen laden with iron having run onshore during a snow storm. Crew saved.
