    'On Thursday the 19th (Oct 1775) instant the brig Trevor Totty master, and the brig Nonpareil Davies master, sailed from Parkgate [west of Liverpool] for Dublin. About eight o'clock that evening, these vessels being then near Holyhead, the wind came about from SSW to the westward, and so violent a hurricane arose that they could not carry any sail, but were obliged to lie down and drive before the wind. In this situation Totty's ship drove upon the banks near the Lancashire shore and is totally lost. Every person on board perished except one Samuel Fairclough, a mariner, who miraculously saved his life by leaping on board another vessel, called the Charming Molly, Hollyway master, which by accident ran foul of the Trevor and at the instant the two vessels struck together Fairclough made his leap. The Nonpareil it is supposed stranded upon Hoyle-sands and is lost. Not one person is saved ... The Trevor and the Nonpareil had on board near 200 passengers among whom were the Hon. Major [Francis] Caulfeild [MP for Charlemont], his lady and daughters ... [and] the two Mr Frenches, one of them Member for the County of Roscommon ... We are informed that there were on board the two last mentioned vessels 6,000 in specie, besides silks, woollen clothes, jewels and other things to the amount of between 30 and 40,000'
