Shipwrecked

2 Jan 1841 - the paddle steamer Clonmel went aground at Snake Point. It was carrying a number of influential society people from Sydney and valuable cargo on only its second run on the all important east coast route.

The Launceston Courier for 18 Jan 1841 reports the Clonmel was fully insured in Sydney for forthy thousand pounds, lists the passengers as Mr and Mrs Walker, Miss SR Walker, Miss MC Walker, Master J Walker and servant; Messrs TD Edwards, Robinson, Cantry, Dickinson, Small, Cashmore, Hesketh, J Moss, J Holland, Goodwin, Cassock, Miss Ann Ketell, Mrs J Thurlow, child and servant, and 14 in the steerage Among those taking advantage of the high class service when the Clonmel wrecked were a Mr Robinson and a Mr and Mrs Cashmore. Mr Robinson, a representative of the Union Bank, was escorting a £3000 shipment of bank notes for the bank's Melbourne branch. Mr and Mrs Cashmore, newlyweds, were taking a large amount of stock to Melbourne for a drapery store they were opening on the corner of Collins and Elizabeth Streets.

On 15 Jan the Sisters, cutter with Mulhall master, brough survivors Mr and Mrs Cashmore, Mrs Cusack, Messrs Holland, Robertson, Hesketh, Dickenson, Smith, Anketel, Moss, Lieut Russell, mounted police and troop, Captains Passmore and Lewis, nine in the steerage.
Jan 16 the 'Will Watch' schooner, brought Captains Tolervey and Roach, Mr Goodwin and the crew of the Clonmel.
See Website a 600-ton steamer, the ‘Clonmel’, bound for Port Phillip from Sydney, had grounded on a sandbank south of the present Port Albert at around 3am on 2 January 1841.
Meanwhile, in Feb 1841, as overseer for land-owner Lachlan Macalister, Angus McMillan penetrated deep into Victoria’s southeast mountains from the grazing country that had been established south of Omeo at Ensay, convinced that a track could be made to the sea. Reaching Corner Inlet, near what is today Port Albert, he “supped the salt water in his Highland bonnet”, and recorded his visit on a tree where he engraved the words ‘Angus McMillan 14-2-1841’.
Eight men formed the ‘Gippsland Company’, chartering the 343-ton barque ‘Singapore’ under Captain Hamilton to settle the promising lands seen when the Clonmel floundered. Following the deep channel the Clonmel’s crew and passengers had reported, though not without some delay, the party landed nine horses and provisions at the point where McMillan had supped.
McMillan returned to Ensay without noticing the shipwreck and immediately arranged for a bullock team to assist in cutting a track down to Port Albert. Imagine his surprise when he arrived back at the mouth of the Albert River to the spot he had discovered, to find a cottage and a small company of men in tents.
