History of HMS Beagle
HMS Beagle was a small bark of the Royal Navy. She was launched 1820 from the Woolwich Dockyard on the River Thames. From 1831 to 1836 she undertook her famous voyage to survey the South American coast and the Pacific Ocean with Charles Darwin on board. His work would eventually make the Beagle a famous ship in history.
There is a fine article in Wikipedia about HMS Beagle.
