Built in New Bristol, Prince Edward Island for Lemuel and Artemus Cambridge[1], the George Canning had one deck, three square-rigged masts. She was launched in June, 1827. By 31 January 1829, Lemuel and Artemus had her listed for sale in London, and on 23 March, Edward Bevan bought her from the assignees of the Cambridges, who had gone bankrupt.[2]

On 11 September 1830, while en route from Liverpool to Quebec, she was dismasted and had to make for the nearest port.[2]

On 26 March 1832, the assignees of Edward Bevan, who had also gone bankrupt, sold her to Artemus Cambridge and Robert Gray.[2]

George Canning's registry was closed in Liverpool on 23 May 1832.[2]
