LIBERTY (14) Cutter-brig Purchased in 1779.
Sold in 1816.

  • 1795 Lieut. George M'KINLEY, 04/1795, Guernsey and Jersey.
    On 18 March 1796 Lieut. M'KINLEY and Lieut. GOSSETT of ARISTOCRAT offered their services to Capt. Sidney SMITH of DIAMOND to assist in an attack on a French convoy, of seven vessels protected by a corvette, which had been driven into Herqui. DIAMOND silenced one detached gun before the boats landed under her covering fire to capture a battery of three 24-pounders. LIBERTY was then able to approach the corvette which was anchored in shallow water and soon the enemy crew abandoned her and made for the shore. Because the enemy troops on the hills kept up a continual musket fire, the utmost that could be done was to burn the the corvette, the L'ETOURDIE of 16 guns with 12-pounders on the main deck. The merchant vessels were also destroyed except for one armed lugger which kept up her fire to the last.
    Lieut. M KINLEY was promoted commander in May 1798 and appointed to OTTER.

    In October 1803 Lieut. COOK was appointed Vice Ad. BLIGH's flag lieutenant at Leith.
