The trust said the wreck was that of the Flower of Ugie, a 19th century wooden sailing barque that sank in the Solent on December 27, 1852 following a great storm in the English Channel.
Later it was employed in the Mediterranean, the Baltic and across the Atlantic, carrying cargo to and from America and Canada.
