Monument Point,
Plymouth

Royal Gazette, Dec.12, 1848: Melancholy Shipwreck - The schooner WELCOME RETURN, Captain Hewitt, of and from P.E.Island for Boston, went ashore at Monument Point, Plymouth last Monday evening at six o'clock and immediately went to pieces. The crew were all saved. A woman who was on board with six children, succeeded in reaching the shore with her infant in her arms while the other five were lost. Their bodies were recovered and placed in the town hall, presenting five as beautiful faces as ever were seen in one family. - also - The Islander, December 8, 1848: The PEI Schooner, Welcome Return, Captain Hewitt, of and from P. E. Island, was wrecked at Manomet Point, Plymouth, and this was the report in the Boston Globe. From the Boston Globe: "AN UNFEELING ACT. We hear it stated that the loss of the British (sic) schooner, Welcome Return, before reported ashore at Manomet, was attended by some circumstances which, if the statements may be relied upon, reflect with much severity upon the crew and male passengers. As we understand the facts, the crew and passengers consisted of eleven men and one woman and six children – the wife and children of one of the passengers. When the vessel struck, the men succeeded in getting ashore, and sought shelter in a neighboring house –leaving the woman and her children aboard the schooner! "A gentleman, who was passing the place, some time after, was attracted to the wreck by a low moaning sound. By means of a spar, he succeeded in getting on board, and found the woman with one child bound to her breast to keep it from perishing and the other five dead! With much difficulty she was gotten ashore, and taken to the same house where the crew and passengers – among them her husband – were enjoying a comfortable shelter. "If the above statement be true, and we hear it from good authority, we envy not that father's reflections as he follows to the tomb the remains of his five children, who might perhaps have been rescued, had he, to whom above all others they looked for succor, assisted them in their extremity. The male passengers and crew of this vessel deserve the severest reprobation for their leaving the unfortunate and helpless individuals to perish, and the indignation and scorn of an outraged public will be their fitting reward."

One bright looking lad had bought a complete set of Cooper's Novels, and when we left the shop they had not completed their purchases." [GC]

Julie

Lisbon, Portugal

Charlottetown, P.E.I.

Guardian 10 June, 1916: "THE TRICOLOR IN PORT. -- From far away Lisbon in Portugal, the small topsail schooner "Julie" flying the tri-color of France at her peak arrived in Charlottetown early yesterday morning. The "Julie" is a vessel of 107 tons and brings a cargo of salt for Carvell Bros. Her crew, consisting of seven or eight persons are all French speaking people. Two of them are mere boys. That the square sails on the foremast are a great boon to a vessel of the kind is shown by the fact that the schooner made the voyage in the quick time of 26 days, not withstanding the fact that some eight or nine of these days were very foggy. The vessels cargo arrived in first class condition. [GC]

The Sullivans

 

P.E.I.

4 Sept., 1964 - USS destroyer "The Sullivans" built 1943 dep. Charlottetown after courtesy visit for 1964 centennial; (Guardian 4 Sep, 1964, p 3)

Notes:

1"The beginning of December 1849 they set sail from Souris, P.E.I. for California. Mr. Cooper [William Cooper] was the captain with all his family and a number of passengers, the ship carried about twenty-six people. --- After a long and uneventful voyage they arrived in July 1850 in San Francisco Bay where they dropped anchor for the first time in seven months. --- sell the vessel the Good Packet for one third her value."
The grammar is a bit stilted but the story is of William Cooper who returned to P.E.I. later in life but whose family stayed on in California. Son J.W. Cooper returned to P.E.I. to marry (I believe his third wife, Lydia Webster) and then again took her to California in 1876. Contributed by John Russel.

While some Newfoundland sailings to P.E.I. are included here, we have information on many more sailings to P.E.I. from other Maritime Provinces, Newfoundland, and to and from Boston, as well as indexes to most RG-9 Customs House Records on our "Ships Page"! I have decided to keep the bulk of these separate to keep this database from getting cluttered by these sailings, and to keep this database primarily for International sailings! RG-9 listings on that page include Maritime, International, and Newfoundland sailings. Maritime Passenger lists on that page will also show the passengers we have come across so far for sailings within the Maritimes. All international sailings from the Customs House and newspaper records we have, have been included in this database.
