HMS San Antonio

Three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS San Antonio, a foreign language version of Saint Anthony:

  • HMS San Antonio was a 4-gun sloop, formerly a pirate ship belonging to William Kidd. She was captured in 1700 and sunk as a foundation in 1707.
  • HMS San Antonio was a 64-gun third rate captured from the Spanish in 1762 and sold in 1775.
  • HMS San Antonio was a 74-gun third rate, previously the French ship St Antoine. She was captured in 1807, and was initially planned to be sold that same year. Instead she was used as a prison ship from 1809 and a powder hulk from 1814. She was finally sold for breaking up in 1828.

    Today, San Francisco has experienced a double tragedy of incredible proportions. As acting mayor, I order an immediate state of mourning in our city. The city and county of San Francisco must and will pull itself together at this time. We will carry on as best as we possibly can.... I think we all have to share the same sense of shame and the same sense of outrage.
    Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)
