Hello- I will be researching the Hermione at the New London martime museum later this week. It appears to have grounded 11/1/1782 east of NL harbor. Who would have reported on his? I can’t even figure out what the weather was that day. Any help would be loved. Thanks, Glenn

Capt. Thomas Hopkins of New London, CT was commander of the sloop Hermione. On September 29, 1782 while near Turks Island, he seized the sloop Adventure of Bermuda, commanded by James Newman. The mate and hands were put ashore and John Norcott, prize master of the Hermione, brought the prize to New London, CT, October 19, 1782, and delivered the vessel and her papers to the register of Maritime Court for libel.
