Vessel history
The LEVEN left the Clyde on the 2nd March 1867 under sail and was left by the tug below Ailsa Craig. Having been subsequently forced to seek shelter in Lochryan, she again started on 7th and was left by the tug far down the channel. The LEVEN had on board 30 tons pig iron, was commanded by Capt. Flenley, and was manned by a crew of several men. This is the third steamer belonging to the Clyde purchased by the Bahia Company which has been lost within the past few weeks. (See sister, LENNOX and the Barclay Curle-built VESPER).
