I am interested in the Socabaya a corbeta of the Peruvian/Bolivian Confederation Navy. Said to have been built in Ria de Guayas, Ecuador and launched in 1836 and named the Francisca. Renamed as the Socabaya when purchased by the Peruvian/Bolivian Confederation Navy in 1837. Captured by the Armada de Chile on 17th August 1838 at Callao. Decommissioned and sold by the Chilean Navy in 1840.
Purchased as a merchant ship and sailed from Valparaiso, Chile October 1840 for Sydney Australia with 200 horses. Arrived at the Bay of Islands, New Zealand July 1841 leaking badly and condemned there. The Socobaya's mast was used as a flagpole and become an important part of New Zealand's history when cut down by the warrior chief Hone Heke when the town of Russell was sacked and burned in 1845.
Does anyone have any information on the Francisca/Socabaya built in the Rias de Guayas, Ecuador?
