Officers and Men of the Frigate Deane (11/1781-5/31/1782)

The following alphabetical list of 303 officers and men of the Continental Navy frigate Deane, commanded by Samuel Nicholson, was compiled from the 17 volume collection of “Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War. A Compilation from the Archives” first published by the Massachusetts Office of the Secretary of State between 1896 and 1908. The collection is available online with digital recognition through the auspices of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and is also accessible through Ancestry.com. However, both of these viewing vehicles are cumbersome when searching for the entire crew of a particular vessel. Some time ago, I stumbled on the 12 February 2011 blog “The Crew of the Two Ships Called Deane” on Dennis Segelquist’s always interesting website “Civil War Days & Those Surnames”. Mr. Segelquist included names representing crews from both the Continental frigate Deane and the private armed ship of the same name, commanded by Elisha Hinman. He didn’t segregate the crews of the two vessels “as this would take way too long.” In order to provide an easily re-searchable list of the officers and men of the Continental Navy frigate Deane, I have taken that time to re-examine each of the 17 volumes. In the process, I have discovered a number of the crew who were missed in Segelquist’s blog. As he correctly noted, “These records are badly written and there are a lot of miss-spellings”, errors accentuated by the digital recognition software that is used to transcribe them. I have done my best but I’m certain some errors appear despite my concentrated efforts. The reference volume and page numbers have been added in parentheses for each individual listing for ease in using the collection. Finally, where the individual continued in service of the vessel re-named frigate Hague, I have included that service also.

This list of officers and men do not cover the entire history of the vessel which was built at Nantes, France in 1777. The frigate was sailed to America in 1778 to be fitted out and first cruised in the West Indies before returning from Martinique in April 1779. After spending May in the Delaware River with Continental frigates Confederacy and Boston, the Deane sailed in their company on a short cruise on the Atlantic coast. In late June 1779, the 32-gun Deane was ordered to proceed to the Chesapeake in company with the 24-gun frigate Boston. A month later, Deane and Boston “left the capes” on orders to cruise until the middle of September, or longer if their provisions lasted, and return to home port at Boston. The two frigates captured a number of prizes and arrived at Boston with two hundred fifty prisoners on 6 September 1779.

On 21 September 1779, the Marine Committee of the Continental Congress ordered the Navy Board at Boston to re-fit the Continental frigates Deane, Boston and Queen of France as quickly as possible for service at Charleston, SC. One month later, the Deane was detached from this duty while the frigates Providence, Boston, Queen of France and ship Ranger all sailed to their eventual doom when Charleston was lost to the British on 12 May 1780. The idle Deane was ordered to the Chesapeake to secure bread for a starving Boston in January 1780 but was still in port the following month when bread was again available. Sometime during the second half of February Deane sailed on a nine week cruise, taking at four valuable prizes before returning on 1 May 1780 with a number of prisoners “among whom a virulent fever prevailed”.

Less than two weeks after Deane’s arrival at Boston, the vessel is ordered to be fit out as soon as possible and to “be in Delaware Bay” by the end of June. Funding and crewing issues delay Deane’s arrival at Chester in the Delaware until mid-August 1780. Frigates Deane and Trumbull sailed in concert on a short cruise within the next few weeks while also suffering complaints surrounding Deane’s impressment of twenty-one sailors on the river. In early December 1780, the Continental frigates Confederacy, Deane and Saratoga depart Philadelphia for a cruise in the West Indies that would last until early spring 1781. While the Deane returned yet again to Boston on 17 April 1781 after a twenty-five day transit from Cape Francois, the Confederacy was taken by the British three days earlier and the Saratoga was forever lost without a trace. The frigate lay idle again at Boston as the British troops at Yorktown surrendered on 19 October 1781. It wasn’t until the vessel starting crewing again when this roll of officers and men was first initiated. The annotations suggest the Deane’s roll was commenced in early November 1781 and completed with the discharge of her crew on 31 May 1782. A 23 May 1782 newspaper article reports the frigate Deane having arrived at Boston the previous Friday “after a short passage from France”, taking five prizes on the way home. I have not yet been able to determine the location of the original roll in the Massachusetts Archives Collection.
