Origin and History

The frigate was built by Hugh Blaydes at Hull and launched on March 8 1757.

During the Seven Years' War, the ship was under the command of:

  • 1758: captain Benjamin Clive

The frigate was scuttled at Savannah (Georgia) on September 19 1778 to block a narrow part of the channel.

Service during the War

At the end of May 1758, the frigate was part of commodore Howe's squadron who, from June 1 to July 1, escorted the amphibious expedition against the French coasts. On June 5 at 2:00 PM, the frigate was part of 4 vessels led by Howe to silence the battery defending the beach in the bay of Cancale along with 3 other British vessels, clear the beach, and cover the landing. By 4:00 PM, Howe advanced with his 4 vessels against the French battery. Soon after 7:00 PM, the 4 British vessels silenced the battery and cleared the village. From July 31 to September 19 1758, she probably took part to the second expedition against the French Coasts.
