From 7–8 April 1814, ships' boats of the Hogue, Endymion, Maidstone and Borer attacked Pettipague point. In 1847 the Admiralty awarded the Naval General Service Medal with clasp "8 Apr Boat Service 1814" to all surviving claimants from the action. The raid was commanded by Coote, who was promoted as a result of the successful outcome, as was Lieutenant Pyne of the Hogue who assisted him.
She was converted into a screw-propelled steamship frigate in 1850. Hogue was eventually broken up in 1865.
