Queen Charlotte was launched in 1790, a 1st rate, 100 gun Ship of the line.

In 1793 the fleet was West of the Isles of Scilly conducting manoeuvres. On 31st July, the French were spotted, but the British were unable to close and the French escaped.

On 10th August, Admiral Lord Howe, on board his flagship HMS Queen Charlotte, gave up the search for the French and took his fleet into Torbay. Two weeks later, the fleet left Torbay to escort home-bound convoys from Newfoundland and the Caribbean.
