does not look like the same person
28 Jul 1801 the remains of Sir John Colleton, late commander of the cutter Swift, on the Guernsey Station, were interred at Weymouth. The corpse was carried by six seamen to the grave, and the pall was supported by six naval Officers. The deceased was only 26 years of age.

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.
