Hi
There are two EIC ships called David Scott in 1813, it's the other one that was commanded by John Locke (See here), and is c.1200 tons.

I have added basic details of her voyages for you. This shows she arrived at Long Reach 21 Aug 1813.

Ref to Registry of ships East India
1811 to 1812 page 301
The David Scott, 1200 Tons was moored at Long Reach 13 Aug 1813 under Captain John Locke Esq. however this does not show as on this your page. Could you verify such as my Great Great Great grandfather sailed on it as an enlisted man
Sincerely
Roger C Green
