Eugenie, ON 15288, 1864. "The Master should have inserted a list of the effects in his Log and particulars of wages" complained J. S. Miller, the receiving official at Cardiff. The master, Joseph Jarvis, failed to account for the possessions of John Evany, apprentice, who died on the 11th of November, 1863, southeast of the Isle of Wright. Attesting to the poor conditions that day and the danger of seafaring labour, Evany was not the only man to fall from aloft that day. Peter Hansen "received sundry injuries" after he fell from the foreyard onto the deck south of Portland and was left in hospital at Salcombe. The apprentice Evany was a native of this town and the absence of an inventory suggests that Jarvis might have left the young man's things with his family.
