MALABAR (56) Purchased as a storeship in 1804.
Broken up in 1853.

  • 1805 Capt. Robert HALL. She sailed for the West Indies on 21 August.
    On 2 January 1806 MALABAR and the WOLFE sloop discovered two French privateer schooners from Santiago in Port Azarades, Cuba, where they were protected by a double reef of rocks. The master of MALABAR found a passage through the reef through which WOLFE was successfully navigated along with the boats of both ships. The enemy vessels were LE REGULATEUR armed with a brass 18-pounder and two 12-pounder carronades and LE NAPOLEON with one long 9-pounder, two 12-pounder carronades and two 4-pounders. They were manned by 146 men. After an hour and three quarters the survivors abandoned them and took to the woods leaving only four to be taken prisoner (one fatally wounded). The two prizes were towed outside the reefs where the REGULATEUR sank, taking marine Thomas Smith and two wounded prisoners with her.
  • 1807 Capt. TEMPLE, Nore.
    At a court martial on board GLADIATOR at Portsmouth on 1 June Lieut. Pennyman STEVENSON of MALABAR was found guilty of neglect of duty and dismissed from the Navy.
  • 1808 John ANSDELL, Master and Purser, fitting out for foreign service at Deptford.
  • 1811 F. BRADSHAW, to the Leeward Is.
  • 1815 Ditto, Spithead for the Mediterranean.
    Renamed COROMANDEL in 1815.
