Prison Ship 'York' in Portsmouth Harbour
The 74-gun third-rate HMS 'York' (1743 tons) was launched in 1807. She was first posted to the West Indies and was involved in the capture of the island stronghold of Martinique. 'York' then served with the Mediterranean Squadron off Toulon. In 1819 she returned to Portsmouth as a prison hulk and served in the latter capacity until she was broken up in 1854. Typically she confined about 500 convicts.
