HMS Haughty was a member of the 1804 batch and was one of seven contracted to be built by John Dudman at Deptford. Contracts were signed on the same day as the rest of the batch and the first keel section was laid at Dudman's yard in February of 1804. She was launched into the river Thames on the 7th May and commissioned for The Downs under Lieutenant John Mitchell. HMS Haughty spent the next few years patrolling and escorting convoys in the English Channel and the North Sea. ref kent history forum
