The steamer was owned by the Lombard Steamship Company of London and had been in Australian waters for some time. It was chartered by Messers J. and A. Brown, colliery proprietors, and traded regularly between Newcastle and other coastal ports under the command of Captain Wills.
The vessel could not be salvaged and was abandoned. The master was found guilty of gross misconduct by a Court of Marine Inquiry.
