The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Duke of Wellington (Schooner), drowning, 1833

Full Text

We are informed that a man named Parker, belonging to Amherstburgh, leaped overboard from the schooner DUKE OF WELLINGTON on Sunday last, opposite the Ferry House at this place, and was drowned. His body was found yesterday, and an inquest held uopn it today (Friday,) by William Ambridge Esquire, Coroner, and a verdict returned of "Found drowned, with marks of violence." There are various rumours in circulation relative to the unfortunate circumstances, which we deem improper to notice. Should they appear of sufficient moment to warrant a judicial investigation, we have no doubt but Mr. Ambridge will cause the necessary steps to be taken.
