INDIAN (18) Built in 1805, Bermuda.
Sold in 1817.

  • 1805 Charles John AUSTEN, 09/1804, Halifax.
  • On one occasion she was attacked by four French frigates but escaped by using her sweeps in a sudden calm. While equidistant from Bermuda and Florida on 19 June 1808 Capt. AUSTEN fell in with two schooners which instantly tried to escape from him on different courses so he gave chase after the largest and sent his boats after the other.
  • He captured the French privateer JEUNE ESTELLE (4) bound for San Domingo with flour and other provisions, a sudden breeze springing up when they were half a gun shot away prevented the boats coming up with the other which he learned was the EXCHANGE (6) also bound for San Domingo with provisions. JEUNE ESTELLE had one man killed and one wounded by INDIAN's chase guns. Capt. AUSTEN took his prize into Bermuda.
  • 1810 W. B. MENDS, 11/1810.
