1805
The ship Peggy from Greenock on route to Liverpool loaded with salt, tar, stoneware, cheese, etc. was wrecked 3 miles north of Ballantrae. The crew of 4 men was saved but the cargo was almost totally lost. Lieut. Hugh Ross of the Ballantrae volunteers along with a detachment of his men prevented any of the wreck being taken away. Despite the exertions of the officers stopping the inhabitants stripping the ship several instances were detected and locals detained. The sitting Magistrate imposed the full penalty of 5 upon 2 of the transgressors.
