Photographic Print of Wreck of the French brigantine Angele of Boulogne, Doom bar, Padstow, Cornwall. Wrecked on 13th November 1911
A view of the wreck of the French brigantine Angele of Boulogne aground on Doom Bar with the hull beginning to break up. A report of the Inquest held at Minver Farm, St Enodoc, at the east end of Doom Bar was published in the Western Morning News on Wednesday 15th November 1911. The brigantine, under the command of Captain Theodore Le Layee of Brest had left Swansea on Friday 10th November with a cargo 198 tons of coal. On Sunday the weather and wind direction changed. The wind rose rapidly and the sea was rough, because of the situation he was obliged to return. During the return several of his sails were badly damaged and the ship was no longer navigable. He resolved to make for land, arriving at Padstow Bay at around half-past five. There was an Irish Schooner in front of him and he was required to make a detour. Having passed the Irish vessel he turned back into the wind, but having no back sail on his vessel she drifted. At this moment he was 70 yards from land, and let his anchor drop, but she grounded. The Captain and crew tried to launch a small boat, but fierce wind meant that they could not get into the boat. All hands had their life jackets on but a large wave came over and swept four men into the water. The Captain clung to the rigging. When he saw the Padstow lifeboat the Arab II coming to his rescue he jumped into the water and swam towards the boat and was rescued. The deceased were: Joseph Marie Granger, 36; Merthurm Drinon, 18; Francois Le Coq, 16; and Joesph Helion, 15. The Angele was built in Bordeaux in 1875 and registered in Boulogne.
