Thread Name: when was the Bonny ship the diamond lost
Subject: RE: when was the Bonny ship the diamond lost
> I haven't discovered just when "Diamond," "Rattler," "Resolution," or "Eliza" were launched.
I missed GUEST'S post that put the Diamond's launching at 1812.
The belief that all the named ships were lost at one time is clearly in error.
> There is a 17th century broadside printed in London and the ships were sailing from London which they would have been at that time.
Steve, can you direct us to the broadside?
