USS James Madison
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- USRC James Madison (1807), was a revenue cutter launched in 1807 that HMS Barbadoes captured on 22 August 1812. At a later date, Lord Belmore, of Enniskillen bought her, renamed her Osprey, converted her from schooner to brig rig, armed her, and acquired a letter of marque for her. After the War of 1812 Belmore used Osprey for a family cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean. He sold Osprey to the King of Naples in 1819. She did not become HMS Alban; that was the American vessel William Bayard.
