  • HMS Trent was a 17-gun sloop laid down in 1862. She was selected for conversion to an ironclad, and renamed HMS Research later that year, before being launched in 1863.
  • HMS Trent (1877) was a Medina-class gunboat launched in 1877. She was renamed HMS Pembroke in 1905, and HMS Gannet in 1917 when she served as a diving tender. She was scrapped in 1923.
  • HMS Trent was a River-class frigate launched in 1942. She was transferred to the Royal Indian Navy in 1946 and was renamed Kukri. She was converted into a survey vessel in 1952 and renamed Investigator. She was broken up in 1975.
