Subsequent History:Lost on a voyage from Liverpool to Amsterdam and Rotterdam

Disposal Data:collision off Beachy Head 6.11.10 & wrecked E Dover.

1910 November 6 ,Run down by the Newhaven-Dieppe cross-Channel steamer Brighton shortly before midnight. The Brighton had mis-judged the speed of the big sailing ship and tried to cross her bows but struck her abreast the foremast and the bowsprit and the fore-rigging of Preussen was damaged. Anchored off Dungeness but both anchor chains parted in the rising wind. The two assisting tugs which were trying to get her into the eastern entrance of the Dover harbour were not able to hold her against the wind but had to let her go. She subsequently drifted ashore at Dover at about 16:30 and was lost.
