Thanks for the response and pages.

I can find no record of a Bien Aime in the royal navy other than a storeship condemned and sold in 1748. That had been a French privateer and was captured in 1744. http://threedecks.org/index.php?display_type=show_ship&id=7497

That Bien Aime had been originally built in Marseille in 1740, so can not be the same vessel.

The quote refers to 'once been in the Navy', I read that it may originally have been a French navy vessel. I'll have to look in Demerliac when I get a chance.
