Warships for South American Rebels:

Shipbuilders Adam and Noah Brown Find a New Market for Frigates in South America

During the War of 1812 (1812– 1815),

Adam and Noah Brown of New York were busy shipbuilders.

From the onset of the war in June 1812 they built eight privateers, the sloop-of-war Peacock for the United States Navy,

the squadron for Commodore Perry on Lake Erie,

the fleet for Commodore Macdonough on Lake Champlain, and the Robert Fulton-designed steam frigate Demologos for the defense of New York Harbor.

In the midst of this work they also managed to build a brig and a frigate on speculation in the hope the United States Navy would purchase the vessels.

The brothers were perhaps encouraged to do this by the contract for.

Peacock and correspondence with the secretary of the navy.

Peacock was laid down in early July 1813 before the contract with the Navy had actually been signed, and was launched on 19 September.

While the vessel was under construction, the Browns exchanged correspondence through New York Naval Agent John.

Bullis with Secretary of the Navy William Jones about going to Sacketts Harbor on Lake Ontario and building three similar sloops of war there.

The Browns replied that they would leave for Sacketts Harbor with four hundred men as soon as the contract was signed.

This proposal did not materialize, but discussions with.

Bullis and correspondence with the secretary of the navy continued.

In January 1814 Secretary Jones asked the Browns if they could procure the timber for a 44-gun ship and if they were ready to build the vessel.

Prior to this exchange, and acting in anticipation of getting a Navy contract for new construction,

the Browns had laid down two vessels, a brig and a frigate, on speculation using their own funds.

The Browns offered both vessels to the Navy in March 1814.

The Navy had inspected the plans of both vessels while they were on Warships for South American Rebels:
