Subject: RE: when was the Bonny ship the diamond lost
'The Prince of Wales' would be mid-18th century, when Parkgate (where I am typing from) was a busy port, mostly for trade with and passage to Ireland, there was some shipbuilding, and there were several families of Briscoes in the area. There was a Briscoe's quay.
