The French brig sloop La Jalouse was launched in Dunkirk in 1794. She is a typical large French brig used for convoy, raiding and escort duty. She was taken by the British vessel Vestal on 13th May 1797 and re-named Jalouse. She was then fitted out for duties in the Royal Navy. The only features that distinguished her as being of French origin were the 90 degree angle to the keel of the rudder post and the tops and crosstrees and trestletrees.
After ten years in British service, she was broken up in 1807. Jalouse had a compliment of 121 officers and men. She carried 18 x 6 pounder guns, although the armament may well have been replaced by 18 x 32 pounder carronades sometime after her capture.
