History

Voyages

Voyage in 1831

The ship sailed on June 20, 1831, from England. Its arrival in Prince Edward Island, Canada, was expected at some time in July. The Royal William, however, was delayed by storms and eventually arrived three to four weeks overdue at Four Winds Harbour.

Persis Leigh was the second woman on board, the first being the captain's wife.

The ship's absence worried all of the Four Wind's residents, the Schoolmaster (John Selwyn) included. John Selwyn saw this ship in a vision the night before it arrived, and was at peace. He knew his bride, Persis, would be home soon.
