If you use the ship search you'll find 17 ships called Dartmouth, or with Dartmouth in the name. The one you are looking for is probably the Earl of Dartmouth.

Would there have been a second ship of this name? A memorial in Embleton church mentions someone on this ship in 1782 when it was shipwrecked.
