Found what appears to be a goldmine for captured ships

Steel's Prize Pay Lists; new series ... Corrected to the first of April, 1805

Entry 1664 on page 118 lists Culloden, Theseus, Sea-horse, Alliance, Bull-dog and Perseus as having taken off Alexandria in February 1799 the Spanish brig San Raffael and the Genoese polacre La Vittioroso. The price money was paid out in 1802.
