HMS Fowey was a sixth-rate warship of the Royal Navy. Built in 1749,[8] the ship was sunk in action with the French during the Siege of Yorktown in 1781.[9] The ship is noted as having received Lord Dunmore, the governor of the Colony of Virginia, when he fled the colony for safety after the Gunpowder Incident during the beginning of the American Revolution, marking the last departure of a Royal Governor from the colony, effectively ending British rule in Virginia. The National Park Service has identified it as a probable candidate for a wreck located off Yorktown in the York River.[10]
