William Shields

I'm looking for the name of a "sloop" which arrived at New Castle on August 1, 1737. It was commanded by Captain Alexander Smith and had departed England on July 26, 1737. My ancestor, William Shields (age 9) was onboard with his family (father and brothers John and Robert perished on voyage; arrived with mother and sisters).

I've exhausted all the sources I can think of and would appreciate any assistance or suggestions you may be able to offer. Many thanks for any help.
