HMS Hogue was a 74-gun third-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 3 October 1811 at Deptford.[1]

During the War of 1812, while under the command of Thomas Bladen Capel, HMS Hogue successfully trapped the American Privateer Young Teazer of the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.

On 16 August 1813 Hogue captured the Portuguese ship Flor de Mar. At the time Tenedos was in sight.[Note 1]

From 7–8 April 1814, ships' boats of the Hogue, Endymion, Maidstone and Borer attacked Pettipague point.[3][4] In 1847 the Admiralty awarded the Naval General Service Medal with clasp "8 Apr Boat Service 1814" to all surviving claimants from the action.[5] The raid was commanded by Coote,[6] who was promoted as a result of the successful outcome, as was Lieutenant Pyne of the Hogue who assisted him.[7]

She was converted into a screw-propelled steamship frigate in 1850. Hogue was eventually broken up in 1865.[1]
