1796 - Charles Garnier esq. Captain of his Majesty's ship Aurora. The particulars of this officers death are both affecting and unfortunate. He had dined at Capt. Urry's of Yarmouth (off which port his ship lay) for the purpose of proceeding on her voyage to Lisbon), and was desirous of being in good time to get on board, preparatory to his departure. His boat had got alongside, when, by some accident, the tide over-set it, and instantly the dropped astern. Assistance was sent out from the Aurora, and, after a fruitless search, alas, only one man was saved. The Captain and four seamen were all drowned soon after the boat over-set. Captain Garnier has left a widow, the sister of the present Earl of Carlisle.
