Watch "The Vanishing" as it's based on this story, although dramatized it's very good.
SOOOOOO, is this Robert Pattinson's The Lighthouse? ahaha like inspired

Was wondering why the names of the 3 lighthouse keepers sounded so familiar, until I realised I watched a movie called "The Vanishing" last year, which was based on this incident. Go check out the wiki on the movie to see a summary of what the writers of the movie thought happened to these 3 guys.

I don't understand why the Gamekeeper isn't a key suspect here. He doesn't do his job properly for nearly two weeks and that just happens to coincide with the disappearance of the Keepers.

Loved this episode, except for the aliens idea. I like the idea that they all ran away together and lived happily ever after...but they probably were washed away by rough seas.

What about the theory of the light house keepers being in the eye of a storm & they are swept by the storm when it passes? It's happened to people before, where they're in the eye & either walk out or the storm moves and picks them up.

What if the four men in the lighthouse were just lazy sons of bitches, and did not do their jobs properly? When they were to be caught red handed by the Hesperus crew, Moore went to "investigate" alone to try and save themselves by creating a "mysterious disappearance", faking logs and evidence. When Moore went back to alert the ship crew, his three lighthouse-mates snuck onto the ship, or escaped otherwise.

Apparently: "Thomas Marshall had previously been branded negligent and fined five shillings after equipment was washed away during a fierce gale." I think it's likely that they went out to secure the equipment, and got swept out to sea... Maybe one after the other, in a highly comedic fashion.

Its an isolated job, they definitely were drinking alcohol. My dad was a lumberjack and theres not much to to for months at a time so you drink. Then they probably got washed away and not many people knew how to swim and even if they did its rough friggin waters.
