    William Mitchell’s career may be traced by referring to Royal Navy – Ships, Captain, Stations 1773 – 1807 (2 vols) by Derek Cripps (privately published in USA)
    Cripps used ADM.8 series in The National Archives (The present Disposal of His Majesty’s Ships and Vessels in Sea Pay) and contemporary Navy Lists by David Steel.

    This shows him as being in command of:

    PIGMY from 5/1782 to 7/1783 as a Master and Commander
    CALYPSO from 2/1787 to 8/1790 M & C
    REGULUS in 11/1790 as a Post Captain
    NONSUCH in 5/1795
    SALISBURY from 7/1795 to 5/1796
