The Sir Robert Peel was a side wheel passenger steamer built at Brockville, Ontario in 1837. While tied up to the dock in 1838 a raiding party dress up as indians captured her, robbed the passengers, and then set the ship on fire. She sank downstream from the dock in 125 feet of water. The event of the burning of the Peel was part of the conflict known as the Patriot Wars.
