Hi TL
Throughout threedecks dates can be truncated. See the definitions link for the uses. But in this case he was on board the Swiftsure from sometime in 1814 until sometime in September 1814. We have not yet found specific dates for the start and end of the commission.

With your addiitonal information we can assume that the latest he went on board was July, but that is not sufficiently precise to amend the data.

I have a letter from one of my ancestors who was impressed and served on the Swiftsure. He notes arriving at Spithead Aug 25th 1814, having sailed five weeks from Malta, bearing on board Vice Admiral Laughaurne's flag, Blue at the fore... which would be a least a month or two earlier than the Event history shown on this web page (ie July 1814)
