The Lady Pierce was an American merchant vessel, captained by a Mr. Burrows, which escorted castaways to Japan and made port at Koshiba, Uraga, and Shimoda in 1854.

The ship first appeared in Japan on 1854/6/17, when it entered a harbor near Koshiba (Musashi province) and dropped off a castaway named Yûnosuke. It then sailed to Uraga, but was informed by Uraga bugyô Matsudaira Nobutake to go to Shimoda instead.
