If you’ve been reading these accounts in a sequential manner you might be feeling depressed at the amount of people who have been lost or drowned. It’s time for some good news – a shipwreck where all hands were saved.
Unfortunately I’ve been unable to dig up any real information on this one other than what I’ve seen in Reverend William Law’s “Day Book: 30 Years at Portlethen, 1840-1869” where he notes that a Dutch vessel sank at Broad____ , Portlethen and that all hands were saved. I’m making the assumption that Broad____ might refer to Broadhaven (Muckle Shore) although I could be wrong.
The only other information I have on this one is an advertisement from the Aberdeen Journal which gives the vessel’s name as “De Vrouw Margrietha” and a date of the sale of her hull and materials at Portlethen Shore on Thursday 2nd December 1852.
