THE BELL FROM THE WELSH COASTER URANIA OF ABERAYRON, 1857

the front with name cast in relief, moulded rim and shoulder, the top with suspension loop and bolts for iron clapper staple complete with iron clapper – 8 x 8in. (20 x 20cm.)

Urania of Aberayron was a 108 ton schooner built and owned by a Capt. Williams whose principal run was to and from Cardiff. By 1874/5 she was owned by Jones & Co. under the command of Master Jenkins and intriguingly was registered at 98 tons suggesting she had lost 10 tons in a refit. Thereafter she disappears from the records.
