Alphabetical List of Officers and Men of the Frigate Alliance (1781-1783)

Alphabetical List of Officers and Men of the Frigate Alliance (1781-1783). This list of 481 officers and men who served on the frigate Alliance during the twenty months between August 1781 and May 1783 represents the combined list of names recorded in the Payroll and Ledger records of the Alliance in the Barry-Hayes Collection of the Independence Seaport Museum in Philadelphia. These documents have been made available online by Villanova University at . This institution is applauded for its foresight in making these historic American documents available to the public at no cost through their digital library. The Payroll records are unattributed, however likely in the hand of Captain’s Clerk Joseph Eayers. The Payroll records include: the sequence of entering service for the first eighteen officers on Page 5 only; date of entry; the officer or crewman’s name; “Qualities” or rate; the circumstances of leaving service (ie. DieD, Discharged, Removed, arrested, leave of absence or blank); date of leaving; time served; amount of wages advanced; amount of slops; rate of wages per month; amount of total wages; “Ballance due the people” and “Ballance due the ship” for approximately 423 officers and men.

The Ledger, which itemizes the cost of supplies issued from the ship’s stores to the 354 officers and men listed, is in the hand and signed by Purser Samuel Cooper. According to a notation in the text, this Ledger appears to have begun as the sequential volume to a previous ledger which was copied and attested to on Christmas Day 25 December 1782 while the ship was bound from L’Orient, France to the West Indies. As stores were distributed afterward, the names of additional men and accounts of goods received were added to the Ledger, a number of them Frenchman on that same Christmas Day. A final accounting was attested to upon the completion of the Alliance’s final cruise at Providence on 21 June 1783 by Samuel Cooper. This is particularly interesting as Cooper was one of the six officers that Captain Barry initially had arrested at L’Orient on 6 December 1782.

The Payroll and Ledger records noted above begin with entries dated 15 August 1781. At this time, Captain John Barry was recuperating from a grapeshot wound to his shoulder sustained in an action with the British warship Atalanta. Barry had arrived in Boston the previous year on 19 September 1780 to take command of the frigate from former Captain Pierre Landais. Landais was facing court martial for his handling of the ship, as was his Lieutenant James A. Degge for relieving the captain of his duties at sea on 11 August 1780. Degge took command for himself, bringing the frigate into Boston on 19 August 1780. The Alliance departed on her first cruise under Captain Barry’s command on 11 February 1781, arriving in France on 9 March 1781 with Thomas Paine aboard, one of three passengers. Sailing from France on 29 March 1781, the Alliance was engaged in hot action with the Atalanta on the homeward bound leg just before her arrival at Boston on 6 June 1781.

Captain Barry’s second cruise on the Alliance, represented by these records, sailed from Boston on 23 December 1781. The ship arrived at L’Orient, France with supercargo Marquis de Lafayette aboard on 18 January 1782. Lafayette was returning home after the surrender of Cornwallis’ army at Yorktown the previous October. The frigate made a short unsuccessful cruise to the Bay of Biscay from L’Orient in February before sailing for home on 16 March 1782. The Alliance took no prizes on the homeward voyage with eight men dying at sea within six weeks, including Surgeon’s Mate Ezekial Hendly. On 10 May 1782, the Alliance encountered and then eluded a sixty-four gun British warship off Cape Henlopen three days before her arrival at New London on 13 May 1782. The large number of crew who died at sea were followed by an additional ten deaths during the two months immediately following the ship making port.

The Alliance remained at New London until she departed on her third long cruise under Captain Barry on 4 August 1782. Almost immediately after leaving, Barry and the Alliance recaptured the prize RI brigantine Adventure and sent her in to New London. He then “proceeded as fast as possible off Bermudas” taking the schooner Polly along the way on 10 August 1782, which he sent in to Boston. On 25 August 1782, the Alliance retook the Connecticut sloop Fortune. The frigate then sailed to the banks of Newfoundland where she took the Nantucket whaling brigantine Somerset in early September. A prize crew was put on board to sail the ship into Boston. Several days later on 18 September 1782, the Alliance captured a damaged brigantine from Jamaica which was also sent to Boston. With intelligence from this latest prize Barry and the Alliance pursued the Jamaica fleet, taking two ships which strayed on 24 September 1782, the Britannia and Anna. Two additional ships from the fleet, the snow Commerce and the dismasted Kingston, were also captured by the Alliance on 27 and 28 September 1782 before all four prizes made sail with her to France. The little flotilla reached Groix Roads on 17 October 1782. While in L’Orient, several officers who had not received their pay refused obedience to the captain. Barry ordered the six arrested and replaced them, promoting less experienced officers in some cases.

The Alliance departed L’Orient hurriedly on 8 December 1782 on her return cruise via the West Indies, arriving at Saint Pierre in Martinique on 9 January 1783. Under new orders, Captain Barry and the Alliance sailed for Havana on 13 January 1783, making port at St. Eustatius on 15 January and Cape Francois on 20 January along the way. She left Cape Francois the following day with Captain Seth Harding, former commander of the frigate Confederacy, as a passenger. The frigate was chased by British warships on two occasions but reached Havana safely on 31 January 1783. Awaiting the Alliance there was the twenty gun Duc de Lauzun under the command of Captain John Green with orders for both ships to depart for the United States immediately with a cargo of specie for Congressional use. They sailed from Havana on 7 March 1783 after having been delayed for a number of weeks. The following day, the Continental ships eluded two enemy frigates. However, just three days later, the ships again were sighted by the British frigates Alarm and Sybil in company with the sloop Tobago. A Journal in the Barry-Hayes Collection records the activities of the Alliance between 1 January 1783 and the sighting of these three enemy sails on 10 March 1783. The Journal is abruptly ended by the events which followed. In a diversionary attempt to allow the Duc de Lauzun to escape from their pursuers with her precious cargo; the Alliance engaged the Sybil, killing two and wounding six. The Alliance suffered ten wounded in the forty minute action off Cape Canaveral, including Master’s Mate Shubald Gardiner who died the following day. After the sea battle, the Lauzun’s cargo of specie was transferred to the Alliance as the unprotected warship had jettisoned her guns to escape the Sybil. The two ships were separated off Cape Hatteras with the Lauzan arriving in Philadelphia on 21 March 1783. The Alliance sailed to Newport arriving on 20 March 1783 and shuttled to Providence several days later, anchoring just below the city. There the officers and men were paid off and discharged as noted in the Payroll records in which the last recorded date appears to be 1 May 1783.

These names of the officers and men of the Alliance between August 1781 and May 1783 have been transcribed by Joseph Ross with the full Christian name first and the surname following with several noteworthy editorial changes. This method is used to facilitate access to a public who may be using unsophisticated research techniques through internet search engines. Payroll entries were cross checked with the Ledger index and individual accounts for accuracy. Invariably errors in spelling are to be anticipated in transcribing eighteenth century script and the author welcomes corrections. Some restraint was exercised to refrain from using a more contemporary spelling of the surname which may negatively affect the accessibility of the records to the internet surfing public. The prefix “Mr.” is only noted where the Ledger accounts specified the title, usually in the event of the occasional account of a warrant officer. This title never appears in the Payroll records. The transcribed name is generally taken from the Payroll records with alternate spellings from the Ledger in parenthesis. However, all abbreviated first names in the Payroll have been written in their entirety as is typical of the Ledger for ease of research. The Payroll “Qualities” or rate denoting pay grade and thereby rank or position are listed next. The two numbers following indicate the page numbers in the online library images, the first Payroll and secondly the Ledger. It is important to note that these page numbers do not reflect the actual page numbers of the original documents as the numbering sequence of the images does not adjust for cover and blank pages. The Payroll records are not numbered and the Ledger image numbers are fourteen digits greater than the original as the index to names leaves were not numbered in the original volume. For example: 11/53 indicates that the Payroll records for Aaron Abbot are located on image 11 and the Ledger records are on image 53 (actually page 39 of the original document). A zero page number indicates the name does not appear in that document. Officers are typically not found in the Ledger and many crewmen, particularly Frenchmen who presumably came aboard in L’Orient for the final cruise, do not appear in the Payroll. Finally, editorial notations have been added to some names indicating significant facts pertaining to the individual, such as: death, arrest or if pension records are known to exist.
