Previous update by Bruce Biddulph.

Wrecked on the Isle of Tudy on passage from Cardiff to Quimper, Brittany.

The original dimensions are taken from "Clyde and Other Coastal Steamers" by Duckworth & Langmuir, who quote the construction year in the fleet list as 1853 although correctly in the text as 1863. The builders are also incorrectly given as Tod & McGregor.
Further data from Ian Buxton.
