Other vessels to perish after striking Goldstone were: The schooner Euphemia on 9 January 1848; she was lost with all hands. On 9 January 1851, the schooner Lady Panmure was wrecked and four of her crew were drowned. The schooner Fifeshire came to grief when she struck the Goldstone Rock on 14 October 1852 and was lost with all hands. The schooner Cheviot was wrecked and crewmen lost on 2 October 1853. In December 1856, the wooden schooner Jean and Jesse came to grief when she was lost with all hands. On 5 June 1860 the schooner Peace and Plenty was wrecked and lost with all of her crew. On 20 December 1863 the schooner Maid of Aln was also lost in the same position, again with all hands. At 2230 hrs on the night of Wednesday, 3 May 1876, the screw steamer Calcium, belonging to the Kirkcaldy and London Shipping Co. was voyaging from Middlesbrough to Leith with a cargo ofpig iron when she struck the Goldstone Rock. The crew launched one boat and the steamer then floated off the rock and sank in 8 fathoms (14. 63 m). Six of the crew were left struggling in the sea. Four men who were in the boat managed to pick up one of their comrades and then made for Holy Island, where they reached at 1300 hrs. The master and one sailor clung to the steamer’s mast, where they remained until 0400 hrs the following morning when local fishermen rescued them. Three of the crew, the mate and two sailors were drowned. Both steamer and cargo were covered by insurance. Her master, Captain Hogg was reprimanded at a subsequent enquiry but did not loose his ticket. The Calcium (Official No.58421) was an iron-hulled 226-ton coastal steam cargo vessel, completed as Yard No.44 by Bewley Webb at Dublin and launched on 13 April 1870 for Kirkcaldy and London Shipping Co.
