It is the same site where I found the wording of the grievance letter.  It seems to be a family research site.

But more official is an entry from the Minotaur's paybook (always follow the money)

ADM 27/2/115

George Crossland; Ship's name: HMS Minotaur; Pay book number: SB 759; Rank: Able Seaman; Relation: Wife Ann; When Alloted: 1797; Remarks: Not stated.
