Footnotes

  • The snow 'Lady Sale' was built at Dundee in 1843 and owned by T Erskine. Registered at 202 tons, she was intended to trade from Dundee to Havana but when Captain Law took her over in 1846, she also sailed out of Liverpool to Rio de Janeiro as well as ports nearer home.
    The vessel was named in honour of Lady Florentina Sale, the redoubtable wife of Colonel Sir Robert Sale, G.C.B., the 'hero' of Kabul in 1842, who having survived capture in Afghanistan, published her memoirs to public acclaim in 1843.
