HMS Collingwood was an 80-gun two-deck second rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 17 August 1841 at Pembroke Dockyard.
She was fitted with screw propulsion in 1861, and sold out of the navy in 1867.

Kentish Gazette - Tuesday 14 February 1860

The Collingwood, 80, sailing ship the line, which has been sent from Portsmouth to Chatham to be cut down and converted into screw steamer, is ordered to be removed from Chatham to Sheerness for that purpose.
