History

Shipwreck at Miltown Malbay.

The Henrietta from St.Domingo bound for Havre de Grace was wrecked on Sunday morning before daylight at Seafield within three miles of Miltown Malbay. The ship was laden with specie(coins), logwood and mahogany and had anchored a few days previously off the coast to take in provisions, but it appears had been unable to get off.

One of the coastguards named J. Sullivan who had gone on board unfortunately perished whilst coming ashore. The wreak is guarded by the constabulary and the crew were all saved. An auction will be held of the valuable cargo worth it is said, 10,000L.

Freeman's Journal Monday, December 9, 1867

Henrietta first ran ashore on Mutton Island in late November, she was got off on the 27th and anchored, from there she either grounded on a sand bank or came ashore on the beach. A report in Lloyds List on the 3rd December says "Master sick crew have abandoned the vessel ; she was lying on a sandbank and breaking up at every tide."
