Excerpt:

 

In October 1820, Charles Coverley, his wife Mary and their five children sailed from the Clyde for South Africa. Shipwrecked close to the Equator, two of the boys were among only 49 of the 160 passengers and crew who were saved by a Portuguese merchant vessel. They eventually ended up in Porto where they had successful business careers.
