The 'Lady Castlereagh' dismasted in a cyclone off Madras, 24 October 1818
'The 'Lady Castlereagh' dismasted in a cyclone off Madras, 24 October 1818'. Owned by Henry Callender esquired, the 820 ton 'Lady Castlereagh' (1802) made its first voyage for the East India Company in April 1803, on that occasion visiting Bengal. In all, the vessel made seven voyages for the Company mainly to Bengal, but also to St Helena, Madras and during its last journey to China. In February 1809 the ship sailed under the command of captain William Hamilton, the ownership then residing with a Miss Jane Chrystie. By the time of the 'Lady Castlereagh's' next voyage, which commenced in May 1811, William Hamilton had taken over ownership of the vessel. The last time the vessel is recorded in East India Company service was in June 1817 when it reached English moorings at the end of its seventh voyage. Clearly the incident depicted by the painting took place during an eighth voyage to the east, but not apparently in the service of the Company. The National Maritime Museum holds ship assurance documents dated to 1808-1810 for a 'Lady Castlereagh' [MSS/85/062.4].
