What Happened to the Snap Dragon?

Record #:
The SNAP DRAGON was a two-topsail schooner used by privateer Otway Burns during the War of 1812. Captured in 1814, there is no American information as to what happened to the ship after its capture. British records show it was bought at auction and sailed to Jamaica in 1815. The final entry says she left Jamaica in 1816, and the trail of the schooner ends there.
