Maid of Lincoln

The Maid of Lincoln was a coastal steamer on her way from Dongara to Fremantle and Bunbury. She hit a reef near the Hill River, 13 kms south of Jurien Bay on 11 April 1891. The crew managed to get to shore in the ship’s boat and half of them trudged to Padbury’s station. They may have had contact with Aboriginal people, the Amangu or the Yuat.
