7 October 1807 – Launch of HMS Zenobia, an 18-gun Cruizer-class brig-sloop by Brindley at King’s Lynn.


Although she served during the Napoleonic Wars she is known for her role in two events, the claiming of Ascension Island for Great Britain in 1815, and the naming of the Saumarez Reefs in 1823. She was broken up in 1835.
