The Slingsbys

Random Slingsby references. (Snippets)

This is a supplement to my first Newsletter and demonstrates the amount of random and tantalizing Slingsby information out there on the web. These examples I found as a result of being side tracked by an entry referirng to Convict Ships leaving the UK bound for the Americas and Australia during the 18th and 19th Centuries. One such ship Ceasar whose Master was John Slingsby left Newcastle in May 1770 bound for the Americas. Ceasar crew and cargo never made it as it was reported shipwrecked. That was all the information given. Not where it was wrecked nor if there were any survivors.

I started to search the net for the wreck of the Ceasar. It was the worst possible name for a ship for a web search because all that was returned was Julius Ceasar and his wreck in about 47AD. I did find one "Ceasar" wrecked off Nova Scotia but that was in 1710. So I tried searching for Captain John Slingsby. Here are some of the random results.

The rapids are amongst the fastest in the world (15-20 knots). You have to travel through a narrow passage on the British Columbia mainland about 7 miles southeast of Cape Caution, then east for 6 miles through the Slingsby Channel.
