Enumeration Book for thr Royal Navy
Name of Ship Wellesley
However as you go through each page various ships are mentioned. I'm not very well up on Naval etiquette etc but it may well be that the Wellesley was the highest ranking ship or carried the highest ranking officer and all the others were just part of the fleet.
I'd put him down as being on board the Active.
If it helps fmp gives the County as - British ships in home ports
and the Country as Ships and Overseas Establishments.
