On 1st July, 1846 CHRISTIANA of Dundee, with Captain Lyell in command, owned by Lyell & Co., from Newcastle, Northumberland, England, bound for Valparaiso in Chile, struck an unspecified rock in or around the Falkland islands. After several days of ‘pumping’ CHRISTIANA anchored in Berkeley Sound, on 6th July. She then sailed into Stanley late in the afternoon of 8th July, where she was inspected and condemned. On 29th September, 1846, J. M. Dean, auctioneer, sold the CHRISTIANA and its effects at Public Auction for a total of £246-13-8d to a Mr. Phillips. Captain Lyell and 12 of his crew left Stanley on 9th January, 1847 on the MAUNEY. The CHRISTIANA was repaired by its new owner, who promptly sold the vessel to William Horton Smyley who made a handful of round trips to Patagonia before she finally left the Falklands on 5th July 1848.
