NEREIDE (38) Taken in 1810.
Broken up in 1816.

  • She was the French frigate VENUS of 44 guns captured by the BOADICEA off St. Paul's in the island of REUNION after losing nine killed and fifteen wounded.
    Earlier in the day VENUS and VICTOR had captured CEYLON with General Abercromby on board.
    VICTOR was towing CEYLON when BOADICEA came up with them but slipped the tow and made her escape.
    OTTER took possession of CEYLON and the two prizes were taken into St. Paul's Roads.
    VENUS was renamed NEREIDE and, under Capt. HENDERSON (act.), took part in the capture of Mauritius. She was brought back to Plymouth for repair but not commissioned again.
