1824 November 10 -- Wind N.E., a very heavy gale, with a tremendous sea ; damage to shipping trivial, but some houses on the beach were unroofed, windows broken, and cellar-doors forced open by the violence of the waves. The sea broke at intervals into the churchyard, the graves were levelled, and two head-stones washed down.
