  History  
 
Lettens Jan14/01/2014On January 14th, 1814, while anchored in Carrick road at Falmouth, the cables of the ship QUEEN parted in a storm and drove the ship on the rocks, off Trefusis point.

The crew let go another anchor, but there were so many panicking people on board, that they failed to do their job.

The anchor dragged and the QUEEN hit the rocks at Trefusis Point violently and was smashed to pieces. Of the 330 souls on board, 195 perished.

The QUEEN had arrived the previous week from Portugal and Spain with wounded soldiers. Passengers also included the women and children from the soldiers.
Allen Tony26/06/2007Lost in a SE gale on the 14/1/1814 in Carrick Roads Falmouth, Cornwall. The Queen was a sailing transport ship carrying wounded and sick troops of Lord Wellington´s army and a few French officer prisoners. The total loss of life from this vessel was 369 men.
