Arbuthnot was a British naval vessel belonging to the Royal Navy. She may have been a rebel-owned vessel which was captured as a prize and renamed. She was commanded by Captain Scallon when her crew burned down large portions of the wooden city of Sunbury, Georgia during the British evacuation in April 1782.[1] The British National Archives holds ships paybooks and muster lists for the Arbuthnot dating from 1780 to 1786.
