Excerpt:

 

The society's Annual Report for 1974 contained an account by John Wilby of how he and his wife were shipwrecked on a voyage to Lisbon in 1832. This year, by courtesy of Mr C.G. Tait, we published a letter written by the same gentleman at the age of 83.

John Wilby's daughter, Mary, married James Rawes of Borrodale who came to Portugal inb 1817; he was also related to the Tait family of Oporto through the first wife of William Arthur Tait.
