  History  
 
Lettens Jan13/05/2011The immigrant wooden brig Lady of the Lake, left Belfast on April 8th for Quebec, when on May 11th, 1833, she got tangled up in an icefield, 250 miles east of Cape St. Francis, Newfoundland. After three hours the brig was almost free when a large chunk of ice pierced the starboard bow.

The ship listed and began sinking almost immediately. It went down in about 20 minutes, taking the passengers with it. Two lifeboats were launched and these were rescued by the ships 'Messenger' and 'Gypsey'.

Note: Accounts on the number of people lost vary. Some sources say from the 280 passengers and crew, only captain John Grant and 14 passengers survived. Other sources say there were 197 casualties out of 231 souls and only the crew was saved.
