March 1, 1738 - Gould, Lewis

Last Saturday arrived in York River, the Ship York, Capt. Gould, in 9 Weeks from Bristol; by whom we have the following Advices:

London, November 15. On Saturday last, about Noon, the whole Court was in the greatest Consternation, and in a perfect State of Despondency, her Majesty’s Life being despair’d of ...

London, Nov. 22. Last Sunday Night at Eleven o’Clock, died of Mortification of the Bowels, Her Majesty Wilhelmina Dorothea Carolina, Queen Consort of Great Britain, &c. aged 54 Years, 8 Months, and 20 Days ...

Bristol, Nov. 19 ... Last Monday Morning were lost in a Storm, on the Nass-Sands, near Aberthaw, in Wales, the Pye-Snow, Capt. Charles Adlam, belonging to Mr. Chamberlayne of this City; and the Priscilla Brigantine, belonging to Col. Lewis, of Virginia; both loaden with Tobacco from Virginia, for this Port; all the Men were sav’d except the Boatswain of the Pye, who was wash’d overboard. Those Sands have been fatal to other Ships; but as the Lighthouse now erecting on the Flat-Holms, is near finish’d, ‘tis hop’d these Accidents will be prevented.
