ACTAEON (44) Built in 1778, Rotherhithe.
Sold in 1802.

  • 1788 (armed en flute) Lieut. Joseph HANWELL, 09/1788.
    ACTAEON was employed carrying troops to and from the colonies.
    In 1790 HANWELL took charge of the home-bound trade off the east end of Jamaica and escorted it safely home.
    He was promoted to commander in October the same year and continued to command ACTAEON until she was paid off on 13 May 1791.
  • 1795 Capt. Uzariah UZULD, 06/1795, Guardship at Liverpool.
    He died in the spring of 1799 after a long and painful illness.
  • 1800 Lieut. P. HUE.
    In the spring of 1800 a motherless 18 year old girl with a neglectful father passed herself off as a boy on board ACTAEON for a period of six weeks.
    When she was discovered she was sent on shore in proper clothes with money from a collection made among the officers and ship's company.
  • When Emperor Paul of Russia declared war on England at the end of 1800 and seized all English vessels in Russian ports, Capt. HUE seized the ANGOLA, the only Russian ship in Liverpool.
    The Admiralty ordered that the crew should be released but ACTAEON made 800 pounds in prize money.
    Eight Danish and Swedish vessels were seized in the port by Capt. HUE during January 1801.
