Descendants of Richard BODDINGTON and Sarah HOPKINS
On 10 May 1878 after she had left Liverpool a coal bunker exploded when she was near Moville, Ireland.
The explosion killed and injured several passengers and the ship caught fire and was scuttled to extinguish
it so that only her upper decks stuck out of the water. The survivors were brought to Derry, Ireland.
