The York was an East India-man launched December 1753 by Wells at Deptford London for Principal Managing Owner John Hallett.
She made two voyages to the east:
1st voyage Madras and Bengal Captain Edward Ward 28 Mar 1754 to 22 Aug 1755
2nd voyage Bombay Captain Peter Lascelles 22 May 1757 to 20 Oct 1758
It was on the homeward voyage of this second trip that she was stranded on the west coast of Ireland.

" By the purser of the York Indiaman who arrived on Sunday evening last we have the following account of the loss of that Ship in Maharee Bay, in the County of Kerry in Ireland "
