She made two voyages to Jamaica, and foundered at sea on 5 July 1813 homeward bound to Bristol, from Jamaica, on her second. A more complete account reports that she had suffered damage, losing her bowsprit, foremast, and main topmast. After she had parted from the rest of the convoy her crew abandoned her.
