Notes: Commissioned in 1807 with Master Commandant John Smith in command. From 1808, she was involved in supporting the Jefferson administration's embargo, patrolling from Maine to Georgia. In Jun 1812 she operated along the coast of the middle states following the American declaration of war against Great Britain.
On 15 Oct 1812, under the command of Master Commandant Jacob Jones, she caught up with an enemy convoy of six merchantmen under the protection of the 22-gun sloop-of-war HMS Frolic. In a short sharp fight, during which both ships were heavily damaged, she captured her adversary by boarding. However, the 74-gun ship-of-the-line HMS Poictiers then appeared and Wasp was forced to surrender herself and her prize.
Taken into British service as HMS Loup Cervier, commissioned in 1813 on the Halifax station to patrol the American coast. She participated in the capture or recapture of a number of small vessels and was later renamed HMS Peacock. She disappeared off the Virginia Capes in Jul 1814, probably foundering in a storm.
