Capture

Venus captured Déterminée, of Guadeloupe, on 18 January 1807 one hundred leagues east of Barbados after a chase of 16 hours. Déterminée was pierced for 20 guns but carried 14, and had a crew of 108 men. The British took her into service as HMS Netley.

Fate

Netley was under the command of Lieutenant Charles Burman when she sank on 10 July 1808 when a squall caused her to capsize off Barbados. Of her crew of about 60 only a midshipman and eight crewmen survived until HMS Julia rescued them.
