Notes on Ship


Advertisment of 28th December 1780HLP

The ship, Jenny, a Letter of Marque, Thomas Walker, commander, is now fitting- out to cruize for four months against the combined enemies of Great Britain, and will proceed to her station as soon as possible in order to intercept some valuable Dutchmen, that are soon expected to arrive from the East and West Indies.

The Jenny carries 14 guns, six-pounders, swivels, and small arms, is copper bottomed, and has every convenience for the comfort and accommodation of her crew, being- about 5 feet 6 inches between decks.

Captain Walker invites all brave seamen and landmen that are willing to try their fortune in the Jenny, to apply to him immediately, at his house, No. 13, in Paradise-St., or to Daniel Backhouse, who wants a few good seamen and landmen for the brig Jenny, Capt. Wm. Gill, now in the river, and will sail on Saturday or Sunday next for St. Kitts, and from thence upon a cruize. She is copper bottomed, sails like the wind, and carries 16 guns, six-pounders.

The Jenny, ( with a load of Yorkshire emigrants) departed from Hull, Yorkshire, England, April 1775, and arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Is there anyway of determining if this is the same vessel?
