HMS Dover

Hello Everyone

I am looking for information on the HMS Dover my ancestor John WAters born England abut 1800 served on her. Can anyone tell me how I go about finding a ships crew and what Ports she would have been in?

The family lived in Leith and and he was missing from the 1841 census so I am hoping that he would ahve been in a port at the time. If he was at sea than I can't track him.

When he married in 1820 he was was still on the Dover. Can anyone help please?
