The Resolution, 300 Tons burthen [Gross], Captain Holm, registered in Hamburg, Germany. While in passage with a mixed cargo of linen, calico, canvas, glass, spirits, bricks, millstones etc, from Hamburg, Germany, to New Orleans, Mississippi, U.S.A. ran aground on Balta, then wrecked in Cross Geo, Harold's Wick, Unst on either February 27th or 28th 1825 (the available records are in dispute). The records are not entirely clear concerning the details of casualties and survivors, but it would appear that seventeen souls were lost, and one survived, who was either the mate or the Captain.
The wreck was sold for £37 10 shillings, but was also extensively plundered. This wreck became known locally as the "Linen Ship".
