From my book "navies of the World 1816-1859"

An East India Company ship Cumberland built for William Borradaile. Registered London #496/02 on 10 Dec 1802 as 1355 63/94 tons. Armed as privateer in 20.06.1803, 17.12.1808, 1810, & 4.03.1811 armed with 36x18pdr. Re-registered #14 on 16.01.1818 as 1366 31/94t . 13.2.1818 sailed for Valparaiso from London after being sold to the Chilean navy . 22.5.1818 arrived at Valparaiso in 103 days under Wilkinson from London, then on 2.8.18 reported as fitting out at Valparaiso. Purchased on 22.08.1818 for 200,000 pesos at England by the Chilean agent Conarco and after conversion sent to Chile under Wilkinson. She served as a flagship of Lord Cochrane. In July 1821 sent with wheat seized at Mollendo to Chorrillos, where an onshore wind caused that San Martin dragging her broken anchor, ran aground. The heavy swell pounded her into a wreck.
