Footnotes

  • The Sans Pariel was built at Brest and designed by Jacques-Noël Sané the noted French naval architect. She was launched in 1793 and was involved the following year in the engagement "The Glorious 1st of June" where she was dismasted and captured by the English fleet.
    The Sans Pariel was subsequently towed to Portsmouth where she was refitted and commissioned into the Royal Navy.
    Under British colours she fought against the French navy in 1795 and took part in the Spithead review the same year. In 1799 she sailed on a tour to the West Indes.
    During the Peace of Amiens (1803-1806) the Sans Pariel was "laid up in ordinary" which probably indicated that she was stripped down to a non-working capacity, without a ship's company.
    In 1808 she was converted to a prison hulk amd laid up off Plymouth. The following year the prisoners housed on board were marched from Plymouth to the newly constructed prison at Pricetown on Dartmoor. The ship then became a "sheerhulk", carrying masts for re-rigging other ships, before being broken-up at Davenport in 1842.
