The 463 ton ship Childe Harold was built in 1825 by Jabez Bayley[1]

She made numerous voyages to the Australian colonies in the mid 19th Century carrying Free Immigrants.

Childe Harold was wrecked on south east point of Dassen Island near Tale Bay, South Africa in February 1850, homeward bound from Australia to England. Only casualty was the master who drowned while attempting to swim ashore with a line.

Note multiple vessels with this name or similar made voyages to the Australian colonies in the 19th Century, so please be careful when linking
