HMS Glasgow (1707)  (1st)
6th Rate 20-gun

In 1696 the Royal Mary was launched for the Scots Navy and was armed with twenty-four guns. Her 115 men defended the coast, protecting convoys from French privateers up and down the East Coast. 

Following the Union of Scotland and England, the Scots ships were absorbed into the new British Royal Navy in 1707. 

As there was already a Royal Mary within the English Royal Navy, the Scots ship was renamed Glasgow. The first to bear the name.

Glasgow was 92ft long, 26ft 6in wide and of 284 tons builders measurement.
