Ship Arrivals at the Port of Quebec, 1821

The following arrivals were extracted from the Montreal Gazette 1821. In 1821 the Montreal Gazette was a weekly publication.
note: if ships' rigging or name of Master unpublished, it is indicated by -- (The newspapers were filmed within their binding, making one side of some entries, unreadable, or only partly legible. This can lead to errors in the interpretation of the entry or missed entries. ) Be aware that there may be two or more ships of the same name, from the same, or different ports, during the same year. A few ships also made two trips in 1821.

English dates of the 18th July have been received by the way of the United States, which have enabled us to make many important selections, from one of which it will be seen that the Queen's claim to be crowned with the King has been rejected ; also her request to be accommodated with a suitable place as a spectator at the ceremony — however, in spite of all these embarrassments, she, it seems, is determined to be present, in company with some of her household.

Chance has classed in this day's paper, two articles of intelligence of some moment, which ill accord with one another — the Coronation of his Majesty on the 19th of July, and the Decease of the Queen on the 7th August, at her house at Hammersmith. The Coronation was celebrated with utmost pomp, and the day passed over without the least disorder or confusion. The Queen's death was sudden and unexpected, as, when it was announced, the people of Hammersmith were not a little startled. . . .

From the Times

There is no doubt that the Queen died of a broken heart ; her present wrongs, her future prospect uncheered with a single hope, preyed acutely on her spirits ; and as she disdained to vent her feelings in vulgar complaint, the tortured mind gradually destroyed its frail tenement. She felt her life so great a burden owing to the continued persecutions of her malignant enemies, that she courted Death the moment she saw him advancing to her relief. When, on the Friday previous to her dissolution, a delicate intimation was given her on the propriety of making her will, she seemed to hail with joy a hint which is usually received with terror : with her usual quickness she caught up the idea before it was half expressed, and said, "I understand you perfectly ; I am quite ready—send for my lawyers." She spent two or three hours in calmly and deliberately giving instructions for the will, and after signing it with a firm and unhesitating hand, exclaimed with a cheerful smile, "There, now I am ready to die." Her Majesty on the Sunday expressed a wish to receive the sacrament, but the clergyman of the parish being restrained by ecclesiastical rules from performing this solemn office without previously consulting his principal, the sacred ceremony was postponed till the next day ; her Majesty was laboring under the effects of medicine when the Minister called on Monday, and he departed with the intention of attending on Tuesday ; but then, on account of her Majesty's severe relapse, it was thought inexpedient to disturb her. As a proof of the suppressed grief which we have mentioned as the great cause of her Majesty's illness, we can state on authority, that many nights previous to the last attack, her Majesty had no sleep. The female attendant who slept in the room noticed her restlessness, but her Majesty, with a disdain that was natural to her weak and useless complaining, never mentioned the circumstances. A few hours, however, before her death, she observed to a faithful female attendant, "The doctors do not understand my malady : it is here (laying her hand upon her heart) ; But I will be silent : my lips shall never make it known : injustice and cruelty have triumphed."
The life, and with it the sufferings, of Caroline of Brunswick, are closed. She, says the Traveller, was one of the most unfortunate of women for nearly twenty-seven years of her existence ; and has only found that rest and peace in death, and that happiness, we trust, in heaven, which for the sake of humanity it is to be hoped, even her worst enemies would wish had been her lot while living on earth. She died, perhaps, the most desolate woman in the world. Her family, one by one, had fallen into the grave before her ; the shaft of calumny had early wounded her reputation ; and she was deserted by her relatives, and shunned by those who hoped or enjoyed thier favour. her Majesty died as ahe lived—a Brunswick—a heroine !

Orders for the Court mourning had been given in England.
On Monday there was a meeting in the vestry at Hammersmith, when it was resolved to open a subscription for erecting a monument to the memory of her Majesty.

It is possible that in a few months there may be a matrimonial alliance between the British Monarch and one of the Royal Families of the Continent of Europe. It would be extraordinary if the King of England should marry the widow of Bonaparte.

The London Courier, in speaking of the disturbances at the Queen's funeral, describes the behaviour of the London rabble in such striking colours that we cannot forbear giving it a place in this part of the Gazette ; this is its language : "they are humiliating realities, and what are these realities ? That in the most civilized country of Europe, we had a spectacle of a royal corpse dragged along amid the rabble shouts of a lawless mob, first in one direction—then in another ; now stopped—then impelled forward—mud, and filth, and stones, and brickbats flying in every direction—sanguinary execrations uttered by drunken ruffians—blood shed—lives lost—and a fearful carnage avoided only from the unexampled forbearance and humanity of those who endured without avenging this scene of unparallelled atrocity. A funeral ! . . . "
October 17th 1821 (no Quebec ship arrivals reported)

Quebec, October 12th

Loss of the Ship ISAAC TODD, Frs. Thew, Master,
a regular trader.

The passengers and crew of the Isaac Todd, (among whom were twelve women, one near 70 years of age) arrived here on the 2nd instant. She sailed from London on the 15th July, and met with nothing extraordinary until 5th September, when the vessel was enveloped in a thick fog ; about 4 o'clock, P.M. a heavy gale came on from the N.E. At nine broken water was observed ahead, and every exertion used to put the vessel about, but without success ; she struck with great violence, and lay with the sea beating over her during the night. The sea being so rough it was not judged expedient to have recourse to the boats. It is not easy to imagine the gloomy forebodings which haunted every soul on board, during that dreadful night—driven on a sunken rock, although (as it appeared next morning) not above 70 yards from land, they knew not where they were : surrounded with impenetrable darkness, and deafened by the incessant roar of the breakers. As the morning approached, the scene presented to their view was far from cheering ; there appeared, as far as the eye could reach, a high and nearly perpendicular cliff or rock, the sea washing the base. About 6 o'clock, A.M. the boats were hoisted out ; and the first, the long boat, broke loose and went to pieces on the rocks ; the others, however, with great difficulty reached the shore. To ascend the cliff, it became neccessary to have recourse to ladders, and, after much labour, rope ladders were prepared of sufficient length to reach hthe summit of the cliff, which was judged to be from 200 to 250 feet in height. The ladders were dragged up by the seamen, who had to clamber, at the risk of their lives, with the assistance of spars. By means of these ladders, they all safely reached the top ; and no habitations appearing near, the lightest sails were hauled up, with which they formed tents. Here the greater part of the crew and passengers remained during two days, while the others went in quest of habitations, which were discovered about ten miles from the wreck. The place where theyr were wrecked proved to be Long Cove, near the entrance of Gaspé Bay.
The Isaac Todd, being a total wreck, she was sold for £90 at the Bay ; the running rigging, cables &c. were brought to Quebec.
