PALLAS (32) Built in 1804, Plymouth.
Wrecked in 1810.

  • 1805 Capt. Lord COCHRANE, to Newfoundland on 27 May 1805.
  • 1807 Capt. George MILLER, Plymouth. Later in the year Capt. OMMANNEY, Channel.
  • Under Capt. George CADOGAN she took part in the evacuation of the army from Walcheren.
    On the morning of 23 December 1807, as soon as Commodore OWEN received his orders from Sir Richard STRACHAN, the boats assembled and embarked the rear-guard under the direction of Capt. CADOGAN while the few remaining guns at Veere and Armuyden were rendered useless and the last stores brought off.
  • 1808 Capt. Hon. G. F. SEYMOUR, Channel.
  • 1810 Capt. Pringle STODDART, North Sea. He commanded PALLAS for a short time off the coast of Norway and on 6 October her boats captured two small Danish privateer cutters. One had six guns, the other five.
  • 1810 Capt. G. P. MONKE, 10/1810, cruising off Norway.
    On 13 December her boats, under Lieut. M'CURDY, captured two more Danish privateer cutters in Siveragg Fiord on the coast of Norway.
  • PALLAS was wrecked near Dunbar on the night of 18 December 1810 while returning to Leith.
    His pilot mistook the light from a lime kiln on the coast for the light on the Isle of May and the light on the island for that on the Bell Rock. NYMPHE, though not in company, was wrecked at the same time and for the same reasons. All the crews, except for nine, were saved from the two vessels.
