HMS Lancaster was a 64-gun third rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 29 January 1797 at Rotherhithe. She was designed and built as the East Indiaman Pigot for the British East India Company, but the Navy purchased her on the stocks because of a shortage of naval vessels to prosecute the French Revolutionary Wars.
In July 1800, Vice-Admiral Roger Curtis sent Lancaster, Adamant, Rattlesnake, and Euphrosyne to blockade Île de France and Bourbon. They remained until October and during this period shared in the proceeds of several captures.
On 11 March 1815, the Navy converted Lancaster to a storage hulk. The Principle Officers and Commissioners of His Majesty's Navy offered her for sale on 30 May 1832 at Woolwich. She sold on that day to Christall & Co., London, for breaking up.
