Tin ingot that was retrieved from the wreck of Hayle's SS Cheerful

Yesterday's mystery object was a tin ingot, one of several retrieved from the wreck of the SS Cheerful. The ingots, weighing 28 lbs and 56 lbs, bore marks from the smelting houses at Treloweth Copper Mine, St Erth, Carn Vadras Truro, Trethallan Truro, Berre Fernes Tamar.

SS Cheerful was a steam cargo ship. On 20th July 1885 she was on her way from Falmouth to Liverpool carrying a cargo of 28 lb & 56 lb tin ingots, with a full crew and a few foot passengers. At 4am she collided with HMS Hecla (a munitions ship) on her way to Portsmouth. The sea was calm with a ground swell, but there was a thick haze.

12 people lost their lives when the ship went down.

The wreck lies 35 fathoms down, approximately 18 miles NNW of St Ives.Tin ingot that was retrieved from the wreck of Hayle's SS Cheerful

Hayle Lifeboat Attempting Rescue of Steamer Escurial

Hayle Lifeboat The steamer Escurial, eastbound to Fiume/Rijeka on the Adriatic from Glasgow with coal, sprang a leak off Godrevy in bad weather, turned and ran aground at Portreath, near Gull Rock. The Hayle lifeboat was brought overland to Portreath to aid her crew (Newquay and St Ives lifeboats tried but failed to reach Portreath), but the heavy onshore weather made the lifeboat very hard to launch and control. 1 crew member was rescued by the lifeboat others tried to swim ashore where coastguards and volunteers waited in the surf but 11 crew were lost.

Brigantine "Glynn" When the Glynn ran aground in 1885 at Lelant, her crew were rescued by Hayle's lifeboat, the Isis.
