Amongst the many losses by the ill
fated ship Lady Munro, we regret to find
that there were two sons of Dr. Radford,
Surgeon of His Majesty's 62d Regiment,
in Madras, a gentleman well known and
highly respected here, who had sent down
for their education, two of his children,
under charge of Lieutenant Clark, of the
same Regiment.

"Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I."
LOSS OF THE "LADY MUNRO.''
We have the melancholy duty to announce the
loss of the Lady Munro, which was bound to these
Colonies, with passengers, many of whom had con-
nections residing here. The account has arrived
by the schooner Eagle, Captain Pratt, which left
Port Louis for Sydney on the 3d November, and
when in lat. 31° 42' S., and long. 77 ° 34' E.,
spoke an American schooner called the General
Jackson, bound to the Mauritius, with the survi-
vors from the wreck of the Lady Munro— one of
whom, J. M. Cash, Esq., Surgeon of the 34th
Bengal Infantry, gave the following account of this
distressing event :— " The barque Lady Munro,
250 tons, Captain John Aiken, sailed from Cal-
cutta on the 27th June, for Madras and Mauritius,
on her route to Van Diemen's Land and New
South Wales, and after receiving many passengers
on board at Madras, and taking in sugar at Mau-
ritius, she sailed for Hobart Town direct. On the
night of the 11th October she ran on shore upon
the desolate Island of Amsterdam, and, in less
than a quarter of an hour, went to pieces. The
number of persons on board when she sailed was
ninety-seven, viz :— the Captain, 2 officers, 7
ladies, 9 gentlemen, 11 children, 10 European
convicts, 4 European servants, 13 servants, and 40
lascars— of whom only 21 were saved ; namely, J.
M. Cash, Esq. Mr. Erratt, chief mate, 1 convict,
and 18 lascars. These persons after living 14 days
on the Island were fortunate enough to be rescued
by the American schooner General Jackson, Capt.
Percival, who treated them with the greatest
kindness and humanity, and was on her route to
the Isle of France, when the Eagle fell in with her.
We have been favored with the following list of
persons, who have met with an untimely death.
Captain and Mrs. Aiken, one child and brother ;
Mrs. Mountford and Miss Hazlewood from
Madras ; Captain & Mrs. Brown and four children,
57th regt. ; Captain and Mrs. Lardner and three
children, 50th Madras Infantry; Captain and Mrs.
Knon, 6th Madras Cavalry ; Lieut. and Mrs.
Farmer, and child, 39th regt. ; Lieut. Lloyd,
Quarter-master, 39th regt. ; Lieut. Clark and two
boys, 62d. regt. ; Mrs. Laurie, Mr. Monteith and
Mr. Fisher of Sydney ; 9 European convicts ; 4
European servants ; 9 native servants, and 25
lascars. Total perished 76.

There were three surviving children of the eight of the earlier marriage, two sons died of cholera, two sons drowned at sea and a daughter was burnt to death. The surviving three lived at Tempe, and six more children were born to the Sparks' marriage.

Text:

It is unclear which sons died of cholera and which drowned. According to Joan Lawrence (above), there were eight children in total, 4 sons of which died as children. I have identified 5 sons, two of which reached adulthood. There is therefore one son missing who died a child which I haven't been able to identify.
