French frigate Dédaigneuse (1799)
On 30 December 1800, as she was taking political prisoners at Cayenne to bring them back to France under Captain Prevost Lacroix,, she spotted HMS Tamar, but to no avail. On 27 January, she encountered HMS Sirius, Amethyst and Immortalite, and was captured the next day. She was brought into Royal Navy service as HMS Dedaigneuse. 
She cruised in the Indian Ocean, unsuccessfully chasing Sémillante on 21 November 1806.
Dedaigneuse was eventually sold in April 1823.
