ADMIRAL was built in 1842 at the Niagara Harbour and Dock Company and operated on Lake Ontario, and rebuilt after a fire in 1853. In the late 1850s she was taken down the Saint Lawrence and worked under contract to the Quebec Trinity House towing and delivering pilots. She was sold off and later rebuilt as a schooner.
