    Are Hornblower's Hotspur and Bolitho's Hotspur the same ship?

    Ok... I did a little research. Bolitho's Hotspur was a schooner and Hornblower's was a sloop.... never mind....

    Hotspur was the nickname for Sir Henry Percy (1364-1403). The RN has had several ships of that name. Interestingly, the first, during the Napoleonic era, was a 36 gun frigate. Thus far too late for Bolitho's schooner and too late and far too big for HH's sloop.

    Hotspur what a great name for a fast "combatant". And everything you could want to know right at your fingertips -- Thanks, Wikipedia:
