In 1764, the Canceaux began a voyage of 12 years during which the officers and men performed survey work used in the creation of one of the most important and magnificent coastal marine atlases ever produced covering 3,000 miles of New England coastline. In 1775, under the gathering storm clouds of the American Revolution, the Canceaux was redirected to undertake an expedition along the coast of the District of Maine to assert the authority of the crown. The Canceaux, under these Admiralty orders, participated in the bombardment and subsequent destruction of the thriving seaport of Falmouth in the District of Massachesetts.The Canceaux's logs were kept by commander Lieut. Henry Mowat, R. N. and sailing master Ensign William Hogg, R.N., aboard the sloop of war, while surveying for the Atlantic Neptune along the coast of the District of Maine, and undertaking the Falmouth Expedition. The log contains details on supplies, presence and movements of ships nearby, ship routine including discipline, court martials, weaponry, significant weather events and activities of the surveyors. Maps and illustrations enhance this valuable work.
