Francis Geary, Vice-Admiral of the Blue, stood for Parliament in Rochester Kent, 16 March 1768, against Mr. John CALCRAFT and Mr. William GORDON. I don't believe he was successful?

Sorry, due to a spate of spam I have had to reinstate the Captcha. I know it's a pain and will update to a better solution soon.
You only have to pass this once per session though, once passed you will not see it again for a while.
