Mamoli HMS Beagle, Darwins Brig 1820 1:64

HMS Beagle was the ship in which the naturalist, Charles Darwin, sailed around the world between 1831 and 1836. The Beagle visited sites like the Galapagos Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. The rich variety of animal and plant species that Darwin saw on the voyage led him to develop his theory of evolution.

Beagle made three voyages of exploration. During the first to South America between 1826 and 1830, the captain, Commander Pringle Stokes, shot himself in a fit of depression and was replaced by Robert Fitzroy. He was also given command for the second voyage to South America and then around the world. Fitzroy invited the young naturalist Charles Darwin to accompany him. The voyage lasted nearly five years and became one of the most famous and important voyages of exploration ever made – although Darwin suffered badly from seasickness the whole time. After the Beagle’s third voyage, which was a survey of Australia, the ship became a Coast Guard watch vessel. She was moored permanently in the River Roach in Essex until 1870 when she was sold for scrap.

HMS Beagle was not built for exploration, but was adapted from one of the Cherokee Class of 10-gun sailing ships, known in the Royal Navy as ‘coffin brigs’. They got this nickname because out of the 107 built, 26 were lost at sea. Beagle was built in 1820 at Woolwich Dockyard. It had the honour of being the first ship to sail under the new London Bridge as part of the celebrations of the coronation of George IV in 1820. After that distinguished start, Beagle ‘lay in ordinary’ (moored afloat, but unmanned) for 5 years.
