'''HMS ''Heron''''' was originally the merchant vessel ''Jason'', which the Admiralty purchased in 1804 for the [[Royal Navy]] for use as 16-gun ship-[[sloop-of-war|sloop]] under the name HMS ''Heron''. During the [[Napoleonic Wars]] she served as a convoy escort on the Leeward Islands station. Then in 1810 the Admiralty had her converted into a [[bomb vessel]] and renamed her '''HMS ''Volcano'''''. As ''Volcano'' she served during the [[War of 1812]], and in particular participated in the [[Battle of Baltimore]]. The Admiralty sold her in 1816.
