Notes

 During the battle, the Sévère, by order of is captain, Monsieur de Cillard, strucked his flag to the Sultan of 74. Its officers, and its brave crew, surprised by the cowardly action of their captain, did not consent to the surrender of the ship and continued firing at the enemy. The day after the battle, Captain Watt, commanding the Sultan was ordered by Admiral Hughes to make a claim his capture against the Bailli de Suffren. This was refused by the Bailli, giving as a pretext that a halyard as been cut during the action.
