HMS Preston (1757)

HMS "Preston" was a 50-gun fourth rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built at Deptford Dockyard to the draught specified in the 1745 Establishment, and launched on 7 February 1757.

In 1785, "Preston" was converted to serve as a sheer hulk, and she was eventually broken up in 1815.
