Description:
In 1759, Louis-Pierre Poulin de Courval Cressé undertook the construction of three corvettes at the shipyard at Point au Baril (at Maitland, in Ontario), on the St. Lawrence River. Two of the ships (l'Outaouaise and l'Iroquoise) were launched and put into service on the river and on Lake Ontario. In August 1760, they were both captured, with the uncompleted ship at Fort Lévis in the neighbourhood of the troops of Jeffery Amherst. Renamed respectively Williamson and Anson, they transported provisions from the head of the rapids of the St. Lawrence River to Oswego and Niagara. They were both damaged during their French service; as British transport vessels, both were lost due to harsh weather conditions and driven ashore
