The Tireless Contributor Barnstar
For having contributed a thousand new articles to Wikipedia. Properly sourced, too - at least those I looked at. Keep it up; I'm sure you have hundreds more in you! ;) Aridd (talk) 18:45, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
Hi Newm30, thanks for the lead. So far your suggestion re Armenia looks like being dead on. Cornwallis remains a mystery. That she was an escort suggests RN or Bombay Marine, but the first doesn't work out at all, and I haven't been able to track down anything that would look like an 18-gun sloop or brig. Still, that's why they pay us the big bucks to search. Thanks again. Acad Ronin (talk) 04:34, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
Hi, The search goes on. I have found Cornwallises, Marquess of Conrwaliises,and Earl of Cornwallises. However, There are major discrepancies in terms of dimensions and burthen between the National Archives data, Admiralty data via Winfield, letters of marque data, and the Wikipedia data based on sources I don't have access to. This one is going to prove to be very difficult, and perhaps impossible to untangle. The letter of marque Marquis Cornwallis data does give the armament as 14 x 6-pounders, close to the 18 of the Naval Chronicle item, but I can't match this vessel and master with any of the others. As for Toole/Poole, I had found the EIC site, but I don't have access to its sources. Also, I can't find any other confirmation of the item. I would have thought that something that dramatic would have left other traces, but so far no joy. Regards, Acad Ronin (talk) 02:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
I just posted an article on Armenia (1796). There's not much on her career, but she had an interesting end at least. Thanks for the tip.Acad Ronin (talk) 16:40, 12 November 2014 (UTC)
