The schooner Pembrokeshire Lass was built at Milford Haven in 1840 for local shipowner William Davies. She was typical of hundreds of similar vessels that traded coastwise and deep-sea in the last century. Sold to David Flynn of Cork in 1875, she was wrecked on a beach near Southport on 28 May 1877.
