Info needed on Clipper Ship "Clutha"

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

--March 16, 2015.

I'm trying to find more information about the clipper ship "Clutha," which was built by William Russell in Quebec in 1855, and carried some of my family when they emigrated to Australia in 1861. I'm particularly interested in the circumances behind the loss of the "Clutha" in 1870 or 1871, when she was apparently wrecked on the Island of Anticosti. Is there anything you could tell me about this vessel?

Many thanks
