Thread Name: when was the Bonny ship the diamond lost
Subject: RE: when was the Bonny ship the diamond lost
Well Susanne's post confirms the discrepancy. I know there is an earlier thread which talked about whether the song was traditional or not. The conclussion was that it is a traditional song. But it held no historical info. So the question still remains was she crushed in 1819 or 1830? Or were there 2 different ships?
