4 Sep 1807 captured the Dutch vessel of war Cheribon ; an account of the proceeds of the head-money due will be deposited in the High Court of Admiralty, circa 27 Apr 1830 (sic).

21 Jun 1831 prize money due to be paid as a result of the capture of the Cheribon on 4 Sep 1807. [Regarding the delay over payment I can only suggest that there could have been a legal problem, or bankruptcy on the part of the original agent ?]
