About the HMS Triton
The HMS Triton is a 28-gun frigate of the Mermaid sixth rate class. The Mermaid-class was designed in 1760 by Sir Thomas Slade based upon scaled lines taken from the captured French L’Abénaquise of 1757. The Admiralty ordered two groups of frigates, the first three in 1760, and the second in 1770. The second group had a slightly longer keel, and was dubbed the Modified Mermaid class. The HMS Triton, the fifth frigate constructed, was launched on October 1, 1771 at Portsmouth.
In 1775, Skeffington Lutwidge took command of the HMS Triton, eventually sailing her to America. Amongst other actions during the War of Independence, the HMS Triton captured the American privateers Pompey and Gates as well as participating in the 1780 Battle of Cape St. Vincent.
The Triton was decommissioned in early 1796 and broken up at Deptford.
