Source: The Marine List, LL, No. 5859, London, Friday November 28 1823.

NMRS, MS/829/71 (no. 6334).

The location of this loss may lie within the quasi-administrative areas designated as Maritime - West Lothian or Maritime - Fife. The available account appears to place the loss on Inchgarvie, within Queensferry Narrows.

The Forth Railway Bridge (NT17NW 70) extends from NT 1390 7790 to 1315 8082.

The loss of this vessel is not cited by I G Whittaker (1998), suggesting that she was successfully recovered.
