Servants bells concreted together with broken bottles and glass from the shipwreck Isabella Watson, which wrecked in 1852 near Port Phillip Heads.
Inward bound from London with 50 passengers, the ship struck a sunken reef off Point Nepean, probably Corsair Rock, losing its rudder and then capsizing, in a violent squall.
Nine died when the mizzen mast fell acrossone of the ship’s boats and overturned it. Pilot Tobin swam out to the wreck with a line and about sixty passengers and crew were landed. A further eight were landed by the ship’s boats, including two saved from the ill-fated boat.
