The Strangest Coincidence Ever Recorded?

On December 5, 1664, a ship sunk in the Menai Strait, a stretch of water with tremendous tidal swings off the coast of Wales. All 81 passengers died, except one. His name was Hugh Williams.

On December 5, 1785, another ship sunk in the Menai Strait, with again everyone aboard dying except for one man… named Hugh Williams.

And then again, on December 5, 1820, yet another ship sunk in the Menai Strait. Only one man survived, and he was named Hugh Williams.

  1. Hello my name is Hugh Williams and I am chartering a ship to take me and a few others off the coast of Wales along the Menai Strait. This should prove to be the adventure of a lifetime and I hope that you will join me on this adventure. Please let me know your thoughts on taking this cruise it will be in early December of 2012.

  2. Conclusion:
    Never sail the Menai Strait on a December 5th if there’s a person named Hugh Williams in your ship. He’s an ill-omen for the rest.

  3. :-)…true…..kinda reminds me of this bible story they used to tell us when we were small, about this guy (Jona)….in a boat with a bunch of other guys. They get caught up in a storm and he comes up to the captain and says, ‘throw me over board, am the bad omen and the rest of you will survive’. The captain does, and everyone gets to their destination safe. (Including Jona, who gets swallowed by a fish, which pukes him some island)……sounds like a win win to me…..Hugh Williams will survive no matter what, so, throw him over board 🙂
