CIRCE (28) 6th rate Built in 1785, Dover.

  • 1793 Capt. Joshua Sydney YORKE.
  • 1794 Capt. HALKETT, 10/1794.
  • 1797 Capt. WINTHROP, 12/1797, Nore.
    In the autumn of 1799 CIRCE was operating off the coast of Holland under Vice Ad. MITCHELL in ISIS.
    On 10 October, being prevented by contrary winds from joining Ad. MITCHELL in the Zuyder Zee, he decided to reconnoitre the port of Delfzel (Delfzijl) near the mouth of the Ems and found there a sloop and a schooner lying close under the batteries. Bad weather prevented an attack until eight that night when the boats went off with the tide to row the 20 miles to Delfzel. They arrived just as the moon went down and the first lieutenant, Mr MAUGHAN attacked the sloop and Lieut. POWLE the schooner, both being carried without loss although the enemy guns were primed and loaded. Lieut. BUCKLE of the HAWKE cutter and Captain MAY in the service of the Prince of Orange accompanied them as volunteers.
