Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. HMS Esperance (1795) was the French corvette Esperance, which the Royal Navy captured in 1795 and took into service under her existing name. Prior to her capture, the vessel had sailed under various names and flags. Her service with the Royal Navy meant that in her brief career, Esperance changed hands four times. Esperance was originally the British privateer Ellis. A vessel by that name and described as being of 345 tons burthen (bm), with 22 6-pounder guns and a crew of 100 received a warrant on 3 June 1793. Her captain was John Levingston. The French frigate Gracieuse, under the command of Captain Chevillard, captured Ellis on 22 July 1793. The French took her into service as Elise. Later that summer the Spanish captured her. At some point ownership returned to the French who renamed her Esperance'. She was sold in 1798.
