The Siege of Masulipatam was a British siege of the French-held town of Masulipatam in India during the Seven Years' War. The siege commenced on 6 March 1759 and lasted until the storming of the town by the British on the 7 April. The British were commanded by Colonel Francis Forde while the French defenders were under the command of Conflans.
The British taking of the town helped relieve the Siege of Madras.
