Thanks, the error has been corrected.

Wrong Temple. Captain John Temple died near Mårup church in 1808. Francis Temple (later Vice-Admiral of the Blue) was commanding the Armide in 1812/1813.
Source: Royal Naval Biography, Vol. II. Part II., by John Marshall, page 911. "Francis Temple, Esq. [...] Captain Temple's advancement to rank of Commander took place July 4, 1803; [...]. His post commission bears date Mar. 12, 1805. Towards the close of the war we find him commanding the Armide frigate on channel service. [...]"
NBD1849 says the same.

Thank you for your work!
