I am the author of "Náufragos de Antaño" a book on XIXth century shipwrecks on the coast of Galicia,Spain. One of them was the loss of the Adelaide(Dec-19-1850),from Bristol,captain William Dovell(Parracombe,30-Oct-1806) was the only survivor. His wife Frances Quartly(Molland,1803) and only child William Henry Quartly Dovell(aged 12) died. Captain Dovell remarried ten years later,Mary(?).He died in 1881. The North Devon Journal published two articles about the Adelaide and my search earlier this year. I´d welcome any further information about this captain and his family.My email:juanserpent@yahoo.es
