Fortunately they were saved by the fog suddenly rising, revealing the ship once more. On finally returning to the ship, some five or six hours after the fog, it was almost dark. Although Hall wasn't alone in landing party, and unlikely to have been either its commander or the "shivering scout", he's known for having been the only person to publish a written account of it.

The landing thus named the big ledge near the top, where they erected their flagpole, "Hall's Ledge" after the only name they knew for certain. On 11 November , the gun privateer Le Milan was taken. In , the ship underwent a large repair at Plymouth , finally docking out in July Two further pounder carronades were added to her armament and her complement was increased to men. She was then detached to North America , where she captured some American privateers, where her crew undertook several boat-attacks to raid American shipping.

Her boats attempted to capture the notorious American privateer Prince de Neufchatel , but were unsuccessful. In all, Endymion lost over men killed, wounded, prisoners, or missing, in the attempt. At the time, Prince de Neufchatel was under the command of John Ordronaux , who was also one of her three owners.

She was armed with guns, almost all pounder carronades, and had a crew of men. On 6 December as John and James , Crosby, master, was returning from Chili with barrels of oil, Pomone captured her and sent her into Bermuda. On 7 March , Endymion , Belvidera and Rattler captured an American privateer — the gun vessel Mars — with 70 men. In late , Endymion joined the blockading-squadron off New York.

The first ships to go were Sylph , Dragon , Endymion , Bacchante , Peruvian , as well as some transports. Bulwark , Tenedos , Rifleman , and Pictou joined on the 31st. On the evening of 31 August, Sylph , Peruvian , and the transport Harmony , accompanied by a boat from Dragon , embarked marines, foot soldiers and a detachment from the Royal Artillery, to move up the Penobscot under the command of Captain Robert Barrie of Dragon.

Here Adams had landed her guns and fortified a position on the bank with fifteen pounders commanding the river. Moving up the river took two days, but eventually, after the Battle of Hampden , the British were able to capture the American defenders at Bangor , though not until after the Americans had burnt the Adams. The British also captured 11 other ships and destroyed six. The British lost only one man killed, a sailor from Dragon , and had several soldiers wounded. Immediately, the British squadron gave chase with Majestic leading.

At noon, Endymion , being the much better sailer, overhauled her squadron and left them behind. Endymion was able to rake President three times and did considerable damage to her; by contrast, President primarily directed her fire at Endymion's rigging in order to slow her down. Endymion's foresails had been damaged in the engagement and she hove to for repairs to the rigging being unable to take possession of her prize due to a lack of boats that would "swim". Whilst Endymion was engaged in repairs Commodore Stephen Decatur took advantage of the fact and, despite having struck, made off to escape at 8.

Unaware that the enemy had already struck Pomone fired two broadsides into the President , following which Decatur again struck his ship and hailed the British to say that he had surrendered. Shortly afterwards, Captain Lumley of Pomone took possession of President. According to British accounts, President had lost 35 men killed and 70 wounded, including Decatur. American sources give their losses as 24 killed and 55 wounded.

Endymion had 11 killed and 14 wounded. There has been a long-running debate over whether Endymion had beaten President , or President had beaten Endymion. Had Decatur tried to fight Endymion broadside to broadside, he would have had little chance of escaping the other British ships. His only hope was to get rid of the Endymion by dismantling her rigging, and in this he failed, striking to Endymion before this could be accomplished, a fact confirmed by Mr Bowie, ship's chaplain of the President who confirmed the raising of the light indicating surrender to Endymion.

On the other hand, Endymion - as the smaller and weaker ship see below - managed to slow down and damage the American frigate, pouring in three raking broadsides that caused heavy casualties and forcing her to strike. Endymion had successfully disabled 6 guns on the President's starboard side by shooting them off their carriages or damaging the gun barrels. A total 10 of the 15 starboard upper deck gunports on the President were hit and the gun crew reduced. It was recorded that shot from Endymion had pierced President below the waterline and 6 feet of water was found in the President's hold when Pomone boarded her.

Shot from the Endymion was even found inside the President's magazine. Instead President was only forced to surrender when Pomone and Tenedos came up. Decatur made a deposition before the British Admiralty Court at St. George's Bermuda, in January In this it is recorded that when Pomone's boats boarded President , Decatur insisted that his sword be sent to the captain of "the black ship" Endymion , as he had struck to her alone. However, in his later despatch, primarily for American consumption, he contradicted this statement.

There has also been much discussion about how many of the American casualties were due to Pomone's broadsides. Before Pomone fired her first broadside, President was already shattered with shot holes on the starboard-side, the side the Endymion had engaged. Pomone engaged the port side, and there was only little damage recorded. See the external links, for two different descriptions of the fight. In reality there is no debate, since witness testimony from officers on President stated clearly that no casualties were caused, due mainly to poorly aimed broadsides and many American personnel being below decks.

After the War of , Endymion was kept in ordinary until The captains of Endymion were:- [33]. Two of Jane Austen's brothers served in the Royal Navy during the period she was writing.
