Allen Tony20/03/2009The emigrant ship Annie Jane, Capt. W. Mason, left Liverpool for Canada with over 500 persons on board. For three weeks she battled with violent gales and eventually put back to port with the loss of her mizzen-mast and several spars. About 100 of the emigrants left her as soon as she reached Liverpool. Having completed her repairs she again proceeded to sea with a total of 450 passengers and crew.

The emigrants were chiefly Scots, with a number of Irish, French and Germans. The ship again encountered rough weather and on the night of September 28th, 1853, when off Barra Island, in the Hebrides, she was struck by a huge wave. The poop-deck collapsed immediately, crushing 200 people to death, and in ten minutes more the ship went to pieces.

A portion of the deck remained afloat and on this nearly 100 survivors were safely washed ashore. At daybreak a roll-call was taken when it was found that 102 persons were saved and that 348 had lost their lives during the brief 15 minutes that the ship remained afloat after the disaster.
