In a Baptist Chapel graveyard near Cardigan in West Wales (Penybryn Baptists): "... Also of OWEN WILLIAMS, Son of the above [Stephen Williams 1777-1832], late Master of the Schooner Artuoise, who was shipwrecked near the Island of Tyre [sic] and buried at Kilmichalog [sic] in the Highlands of Scotland Nov 20th 1830, aged 28 years." The "Artuoise" was a schooner of about 100 tons, built in 1823 and registered in Cardigan and certainly lost in 1830. The Williams family were shareholders in the vessel and were curriers in and around Cardigan for several generations. Simon Carter, pers. comm.
