Description

HMS Beagle Ship Model

Origin: English

Year: 1820

HMS BEAGLE IS A Royal Navy in 1820

HMS Beagle Ship Model was a Cherokee-class 10-gun brig-sloop of the Royal Navy.

Moreover, HMS Beagle Ship Model, was one of more than 100 ships of this class.  Therefore, the vessel HMS Beagle Ship Model, constructed at a cost of £7,803 (£613,000 in today’s currency).

In addition, she was launched on 11 May 1820 from the Woolwich Dockyard on the River Thames. After that, in July of that year she took part in a fleet review celebrating the coronation of King George IV of the United Kingdom. Firstly, for that occasion is said to have been the first ship to sail completely under the old London Bridge.

There was no immediate need for Beagle so she “lay in ordinary”, moored afloat but without masts or rigging. She was then adapted as a survey barque and took part in three survey expeditions.

The second voyage of HMS Beagle is notable for carrying the recently graduated naturalist Charles Darwin around the world. While the survey work was carried out, Darwin traveled and researched geology, natural history, and ethnology onshore. He gained fame by publishing his diary journal, best known as The Voyage of the Beagle, and his findings played a pivotal role in the formation of his scientific theories on evolution and natural selection.
