Caledonian (1811 ship)

Caledonian was launched at Barnstaple in 1811 as a West Indiaman. She first appeared in Lloyd's Register (LR) in 1811 with William Lund, master, William Scott owner, and trade Bristol–Jamaica.[2] She made two voyages to Jamaica, and foundered at sea on 5 July 1813 homeward bound to Bristol, from Jamaica, on her second.[3] A more complete account reports that she had suffered damage, losing her bowsprit, foremast, and main topmast. After she had parted from the rest of the convoy her crew abandoned her.[4]
