Captained by G. Avery, the British cutter LIVELY was owned by Enderby and Sons of London and acted as tender to the Brig TULA, captained by John Biscoe. On 28th June 1832 she was wrecked on MacKay’s Island, which is now called Lively Island, near East Falkland. She was a total loss but her crew survived, although it was to be some time before they were rescued. The TULA, having lost contact with the LIVELY, made for a pre-arranged meeting point at New Island and waited there until 19th July 1832, when she left to search of the missing tender. Having failed to find her, Captain Biscoe decided to put into Berkeley Sound, where he discovered the crew of the LIVELY, who had been brought from Lively Island after being spotted there by the UNICORN. Their journey to safety wasn’t easy – with the ship’s compliment now nearly doubled, Briscoe was forced to introduce food and water rationing as they travelled to South America to replenish supplies.
