Hello Woody
She is listed as"Amyone" in all the Lloyds [I did not see any "Amoyne"]
She is wrongly listed in the World Ship Society Yard List as built as a barque
I tried to find out what the name meant but have drawn a blank, details below

3 masted full rigged ship 1,361grt 1,300nrt 231.1 x 37.1 x 23.4ft depth

1898 August Troberg, Mariehamn, Aaland Islands, Finland (Russian flag)
3.11.1911 wrecked on the west coast of Islay o/v Dublin-Moss, Norway in ballast; 4 lost
