Frederick Lewis Maitland (20 Jan 1730 - 16 Dec 1786)
He was promoted to Rear admiral in 1786, but died before the news reached him

The Edinburgh Advertiser, Feb. 1, 1780
By letters from on board his Majesty's ship Elizabeth, commanded by the Hon. Capt. Frederick Maitland, dated Carlisle Bay, Barbadoes, 16th October last, we learn that the fleet was just returned from a five week's cruize and had brought in twelve sail of French ships, six of which were taken by the Elizabeth, viz. four King's ships, and two others.; two of the King's ships of 30 guns, extreme fine frigates. Capt, Maitland had been ill before they fell in with these ships, and the fatigue of chasing, brought on bilious fever; but he is now perfectly recovered.
