Accidents and Incidents
From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 11th December 1903:
THE FISHING TRADE.— The Milford fishing fleet is growing. A fine new steam trawler, 100ft. long, the Reliance, has been purchased at Grimsby by Messrs. Caley and Page, and is on her way to Milford. On Tuesday two fine new steam trawlers, purchased by Messrs Sellick, Morley, and Price, started on their trial trip to the Bay of Biscay, and will be added to the Milford fishing fleet. The Victoria, belonging to Mr Thomas (Messrs Neale and West), realised £330 for hake in one voyage, and the Petunia (Messrs Sellick, Morley, and Price) realised £230 for one voyage. Both vessels had been fishing in the Bay of Biscay. The s.s. Orion, which had only been out two days, put back yesterday with the skipper ill.
From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 24th August 1904:
The steam trawler "Reliance", belonging to Mr. Cayley, returned on Friday with a catch which realised over £300. She had been fishing off the coast of Spain, and her sale to a Spanish firm is now reported. Mr. Cayley intends, so it is stated, to replace her with a new and improved type of trawler.
[ Note by Les Jones: this sale fell through. ]
From The Pembrokeshire Herald and General Advertiser of Friday 27th July 1906:

The value of the salved property was [£]37,326.
His lordship awarded the Tanger £3,000, plus £230 which the master paid to a Corunna tug, while to the trawler his lordship gave the sum of £100.
From the Haverfordwest & Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 1st August 1906:
On Thursday in the Admiralty Division, Mr. Justice Bargrave Deane, sitting with Trinity Masters, had before him a claim by the owners and crew of the German steam ship "Tanger", and the owners and crew of the Milford steam trawler "Reliance", for salvage remuneration in respect of services rendered to the London registered s.s. "Bolderan", for services off the north coast of Spain.
His Lordship awarded the "Tanger" £3,000 plus £230, which the master of the vessel had paid to a Corunna tug, while to the trawler his Lordship gave the sum of £100.
The trawler is owned by Messrs. Page and Cayley, and the skipper was Captain Peter Ebbeson.
From the Haverfordwest and Milford Haven Telegraph of Wednesday 22nd February 1911:
The steam trawlers "Comus", "Blue Jacket" and "Circe" (Sellick, Morley and Price, managers), which were recently offered by public auction, have since been sold privately to Swedish trawling people. The first two left the Dock on Monday morning's tide, and took farewell to the port after a connection of twenty years for one, and fifteen years for the other. Their destination is Gottenburg. They have been laid up for some time. The "Circe" will make for the same place after landing her catch this week.
The steam trawler "Reliance", owned by Mr. J. G. Cayley, has also changed hands, and in future she will fly the French flag. She left on Tuesday for the port of Dieppe.
Messrs. Sellick, Morley and Price have two new vessels on order, so that the old are being replaced by better and more up-to-date vessels.
