The Earl of Abergavenny was an East Indiaman launched in 1796 that was shipwrecked off the coast of Portland in Weymouth Bay, England in 1805 during her fifth voyage. The captain, John Wordsworth, was the brother of poet William Wordsworth. Captain Wordsworth perished in the wreck and his death marked a turning point in the poet's career.
The original painting by Thomas Luny (1759-1837) is located at the British Library in London, England. See https://artuk.org/discover/artworks/the-earl-of-abergavenny-east-indiaman-off-southsea-191056
