Everard Crichton Pyke BELL
According to the Dundee Courier of 4th December 1899:
"Everard Bell Left Algoa Bay, Cape Colony, to seek his fortune on 22nd July 1872, in a North German barque named the Königin Augusta, belonging to Stettin, Captain Pritzhorn, bound for the Mauritius.He landed in the Mauritius, and shortly afterwards sailed for Adelaide, South Australia, in the ship Tein Esser, and . . . . ."
that's the last trace of him we have.Did Everard die en route, reach Adelaide, land there or sail onwards? - the schooner Tein Esser was recorded at Port Louis later in 1872.
