    Other reports say the ship was only carrying two passengers, see below:

    Otago Witness, 16 November 1888, Page 10
    It will be remembered that about a fortnight ago a cable message appeared in our columns to the effect that a lifebuoy had been picked up on the south coast of Africa which bore the name "Trevelyan." From this it was supposed to have belonged to the barque of that name, bound from Glasgow to Dunedin. We learn from a cable message in a Melbourne paper, dated London, October 24, that there was an inscription attached to the buoy, stating that the barque foundered at sea in June last, and that 100 persons were lost. There is evidently some mistake over these figures, as the Trevelyan had not more than two passengers on board, and with the officers and crew there could not be more than 30 souls on board.

TRACES OF THE MISSING SHIP

TREVELYAN.

October 24.

A life buoy belonging to the missing barque Trevelyan, which left Glasgow for Port Chalmers, on March 23, and has not since been heard of has been found. It is now almost certain that she foundered in June, and 100 lives were lost.
