223 pre-1900 North Devon and Lundy Shipwrecks (an index)
- from the late 1600s to 1899.
 
Extracted from "Shipwreck Index of the British Isles",
published by the Lloyds Registry of Shipping, 1995.

Precise details of all such wrecks can be found in this publication. The London Gazette provides more information concerning pre-1700 wrecks, but with very little detail.
 
The sortable table below provides simply key information about each identified vessel wrecked in this area, but, where a link is indicated, more detail relating to the story of specific vessels can be displayed by clicking on the vessel name. In some of these instances (mostly pre-1850 accounts), more names of people involved in the crisis are given.
 
PLEASE NOTE:
    There were a number of wrecks that have not been identified over the years.
    These are not included in this list.
     
    In those cases where no Master/Captain name is give (i.e. 'unknown' is shown), those vessels were generally of the small variety - usually coastal transport craft with 2 or 3 crew.
     
    There were four occasions of multiple sinkings at Clovelly on the same day. These are identified by the suffix *, **, *** and +.
     
    The increased frequency of wrecks in the North Devon area brought about two additional lifeboat stations at Northam Burrows (1852) and Braunton Burrows (1848). Appledore, however, had already taken delivery of two lifeboats - in 1825 ('VOLUNTEER') and 1831 ('ASSISTANCE', the latter as a result of the loss of the sloop BETSEY - report below). The actions of lifeboats are frequently mentioned in the more detailed reports (where present, below). The reports clearly illustrate the extreme bravery of the lifeboatmen.
