Footnotes

  • The collier Earl of Pembroke was built by Thomas Fishburn of Whitby and launched in 1764. In 1768 she was purchased by the Royal Navy for conversion to an exploration vessel and under the command of Lt. James Cook set off on a voyage of discovery which took in most parts of the Pacific Ocean. Returning to England in 1771, she became briefly a storeship at the Falkland Islands before being sold out in 1775. She was rehired as a Troopship during the American Revolutionary War and was finally scuttled as a block ship off Rhode Island in 1778.
