Dear all,

HMS NEMESIS took 3 Danish prizes in 1809.

12 July 1809 she captured DODRE and FORSOGET and I can find information on their disposal.

But on the NICHOLETTE JOHANNA, taken 17 April 1809, I can find no subsequent information. Googling that name just brings up multiple copies of the same Wikipaedia article in different languages.

I believe a relative was a member of the prize crew put aboard her.

Can anyone here please point me to sources for further information on her?

Cheers,
Westoe

EDIT: P.S. I do already have The Gazette notices about the Admiralty sales of these prizes and the prize money payouts from 1810 and 1830 (yes, the wheels of bureaucracy do turn slowly, don't they?).

You may already know that it's catalogued here ...

A lot of work is being done on the Prize Papers at present. Record copying at TNA has now restarted, so you could try ordering a copy ...

Thank you for this Bookbox. No wonder I wasn't getting anywhere with this one. For her double-barrelled name I had different spellings for both.

Cheers,
