Philemon from Garston for Torquay, abandoned Jan.23 off Densey Island west coast of Ireland. Crew picked up and landed here by the Caribbean (ss). from Mobile.
Liverpool Mercury, Saturday January 26, 1867
I am assuming Densey Island West Coast Of Ireland above is Dursey Island at the entrance to Bantry Bay. This vessel was on a Voyage from Garston (On The Mersey) for Torquay, Dursey is 200 miles in the wrong direction. But given the weather at the time, January to March 1867 were plagued with Hurricanes in the Atlantic and Storms over Britain and Ireland, this might explain why she was so far off course. I will come back to this one.
Crew Agreements for 1867 are held at Maritime History Archive >>
