Four ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Queen Charlotte after Charlotte, queen consort of King George III of the United Kingdom.

  • The third Queen Charlotte was the mercantile brig Adams, launched in 1807 and purchased in 1812 for the Provincial Marine, which converted her to a 16-gun sloop-of-war. The United States captured her on 10 September 1813 following the Battle of Lake Erie, commissioned her but laid her up and sold her into commercial service in 1825. Her oweers finally abandoned her in 1844.
