DOLPHIN Hired cutter No details.
  • 1799 Lieut. JARRETT, Downs Portsmouth.
    On 30 May 1800 ROSE (2), Lieut. RICHARDSON with DOLPHIN in company was ordered by Capt. PRICE of BADGER to examine creeks and harbours on the French coast between Cape Barfleur and Cape La Hogue.
    At half past four the following morning DOLPHIN sighted a cutter to windward and made ROSE a signal for the enemy.
    They immediately went in chase and captured her an hour later about 10 miles north of Cape Barfleur. She was the RISQUE A TOUT, a privateer mounting two 4-pounders with 16 men.
    Under captain Jacques Neel she was 10 hours out of Cherbourg.
    On Tuesday 9 September CHAMPION, DOLPHIN, SPARKLER and BOUNCER drove two enemy sloops on shore and destroyed them.
  • In 1803 DOLPHIN was tender to SALVADOR DEL MUNDO (112), and on 18 June she and ROSE brought into Plymouth the Dutch East Indiaman, CORNELIUS MARIA, laden with a valuable cargo of coffee, sugar and spices, which had been detained by the CATHERINE & MARY privateer of London.
