Arthur Lysaght was not officially commissioned lieutenant until 3rd August 1802, so this must have been an acting position.
There is no record of a W. Mouat(t) ever being commissioned. However there is a William Mowatt commissioned 21st March 1803.
Where are these from?

24 Apr 1802 Mr. A. Lysaght, Midshipman of the Suffolk, to be Lieutenant of La Chiffone.
