History

Martha

THE 109 ton schooner Martha, built in 1847, was wrecked on the eastern side of Point Franklin, Victoria.

She was unloading timber at the mouth of the Parker River for extensions at the Cape Otway lighthouse when an easterly gale broke without warning. The crew landed safely and made their way overland to Geelong.
