Neither the Alfred, 74, nor the Torbay, 74, were off Martinique with Admiral Rodney in April 1780. Both sailed out to the West Indies later in the year. Rodney had 20 of the line, excluding the Centurion, 50; this list currently has 22 because the Alfred and Torbay shouldn't be in the list. I hope that helps. :-)
