Of possible interest. I have found this comment where the "Socabaya" is given the previous name of "Casimir Perier" in a publication dated 1883.

Aquella intimación era grave i aun inminente,
porque las fuerzas de desembarco de los peruanos
eran mui superiores a las de resistencia que podia
oponer la guarnicion de la isla, compuesta apenas
de cincuenta soldados del Carampangue. La cor-
veta Socabaya (antes Casimir Perier) contaba
22 cañones i tenia a bordo entre marineros i sol-
dados no menos de doscientos combatientes, i en
la misma proporcion los otros dos buques, la barca
Confederacion i el bergantfn Congreso.

Juan Fernandez, Historia verdadera de la Isla de Robinson Crusoe for B. Vicuna McKenna. Capitulo XXIX. Los Peruanos en Juan Fernāndez. page 592. Santiago de Chile. Rafael Jover, Editor 1883.

My story on the Socabaya at Russell, New Zealand is 5400 words long not 3500! I can upload it if there is any interest.
