HEARTY (12) Gun-brig Built in 1805, Ipswich.
Sold in 1816.

  • 1805 Lieut. James VALOBRA, Boulogne.
  • 1807 Lieut. William WICKHAM, Irish station.
  • 1808 Ditto, Baltic.
  • 1812 Lieut. James ROSE, North Sea.
    In October 1813 Lieut. ROSE was promoted to commander and HEARTY was re-rated as a sloop of war.
  • At the end of December 1813 HEARTY was with the squadron (DESIREE, SHAMROCK, HEARTY, BLAZER, PIERCER, REDBREAST and gunboats Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 12.) under Capt. FARQUHAR in DESIREE which was co-operating with a detachment of the Swedish army in the reduction of the fortress of Gluckstadt.
    Because of insufficient water the DESIREE was unable to approach within gunshot of the fortress so two of her long 18-pounders were put in to each brig.
    The gunboats opened a cannonade on the town on the evening of 25 December and the following day a general attack was made by the brigs and gunboats which did considerable damage to the fortress and sank an enemy gunboat.
    The attack continued on the following two days but, finding that the fire from the fortress continued to be extremely heavy, Capt. FARQUHER proceeded to strengthen the batteries he had been building ashore since the 23rd., and on the morning of 1 January a tremendous attack was mounted by land and sea which lasted until evening.
    The fortress finally surrendered on the 5 January.
    HEARTY had nine wounded; Lieut ROSE; Richard HUNT, midshipman; John RICHES, clerk; William STANFORD, pilot; John BATTERS, captain of maintop; B. BROWN, able seaman; George WOOD, captain of foretop; Richard RICHES, ordinary seaman; Edward JEFFERIES, private marine.
  • After Waterloo HEARTY was involved in suppressing a riot among seamen on the Tyne. She was paid off at Deptford on 1 December 1815.
  • 1816 Deptford.
