HMS Eagle was a 58-gun fourth rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy.
Eagle was built by shipwright John Barnard at Harwich Dockyard in 1744-45. The contract for construction was issued on 10 April 1744 for a vessel named Centurion, a fourth-rate ship of the line to be built according to dimensions laid down in the 1741 proposals of the 1719 Establishment. Her keel was laid on 24 July 1744, and on 15 November she was renamed Eagle to make way for the recommissioning of her namesake, Admiral Anson's flagship, which was returned to active service.
