    you have indeed answered your own question!  The links you provided are pretty 
    much are a summary of the BAR.  Trial (or Tryal) Rocks for this instance are 
    on the North West of the continent in the Monte Bello islands, which some may 
    recall was the site of the UK atomic tests.  
    The reef is named Tryal Rocks after the ship and is located at 20�16'51?S 
    115�23'34?E (-20.2809, 115.3929).
    I have had the BAR report since 1978 and find it to be a very good description 
    of the navigational  issues of the day, in particular for the history of the 
    coast I live on. 
    The author, Jeremy Green is currently the head of Maritme Achaeology in Western Australia.  
    It is interesting that there doesn't appear to have been any effort to examine 
    the wreck since the 1970's.
    It is also interesting that most people now know all about the Dutch on this 
    coast but would not have a clue of an English wreck of 1622.  Particularly 
    ironic as I was taught in school the Capt Cook discovered Australia, when he 
    did no such thing.
    yours aye
