During thick fog on 26 April 1895, the Lady Eleanor, a well-known Wear trader, sank following a collision with the 1,242-ton passenger/cargo steamer Iona (1883 -London and Edinburgh Shipping Co. Leith), 10 miles NE of Coquet Island. Of Lady Eleanor’s crew of 16, three men were lost: Mr Anderson, the chief engineer, William Todd, the steward, and a fireman, but the Iona rescued the other 13 crewmen and took them back to Sunderland. Captain J. Robinson from the stricken ship had a very narrow escape, as his vessel, which had been cleft almost in two by the force of the collision, went down; he fortunately seized hold of some wreckage and kept afloat for nearly half an hour before being picked up. The crewmen that drowned were last seen standing next to the rail of the sinking steamer. The Lady Eleanor had been on passage from Sunderland for Aberdeen with a cargo of coal when she was struck in the port side at about 2215 hrs by the bow stem of the Iona. Lady Eleanor was a well known Wear trader. The Iona, which was carrying a crew of 28 and 6 passengers from Leith to London, was left badly damaged. This wreck, probably that of the Lady Eleanor, is orientated in a SE to NW direction.
