Subject: Corvette Zephyr

vol 1800-1815
#797 p.106
listed aq corvette ZEPHYR ex British
which was seized 1806 by French.
Should be ex Brithish merchant vessel or privateer.
I have not found such Lettre of Marque in British lists
Also I was not able to identify her as a merchant vessel.

She was then "recaptured" by HMS La Seine
and sold mercantile
LLoyd's listed hert as a French built 1808 of 161bm

Any ideas about her oriins?
PS. Winfield & Roberts copoed simply data from Demirlac, so they do not add any new information
