CUMBER Charles Ordinary Seaman age 20 Guernsey Ship Dispatch 1857
The Barque Dispatch
At the time of its launch, the Dispatch was the second largest ship ever built in Guernsey. She was 106 feet long, 24 feet wide, and had a full-length figure of Mercury as a figurehead. She sank off the coast of Madeira after the crew had spent five days pumping water out of the hold. A lifeboat with the master (Alfred Eastland) and five of the crew made it safely to Tenerife three days later. Two other boats containing the rest of the crew were lost.
