Notes on Officer


This officer entered the Navy, 1 Nov. 1827, as Fst.-cl. Vol., on board the Badger 10, Capt. Chas. Crowdy, employed on the coast of Scotland and off Lisbon; and next served as Midshipman, on the Mediterranean and South America stations, of the Donegal 78, Capts. Sir Jahleel Brenton and John Dick, Ferret 10, Capt. Hon. Edw. Wodehouse, and Spartiate 76, flag-ship of Sir Mich. Seymour. In Feb. 1836, having passed his examination in the previous Sept., he became Mate of the Scout 18, Capt. Robt. Craigie, on the coast of Africa, where his gallant conduct in the boats at the capture, 11 Jan. 1837, of the two slave-brigs Esperança and Paquete de Cabo, appears to have procured him official notice. Removing, in Jan. 1840, to the Rodney 92, Capt. Robt. Maunsell, he took part in the ensuing operations on the coast of Syria, and continued to serve in the same ship until promoted to a Lieutenancy, 18 May, 1842, in the Queen 110, bearing the flag of Sir Edw. W. C. R. Owen. He was transferred, on 13 July following, to the Howe 120, Capts. Robt. Smart and Thos. Forrest, flag-ship for some time of Sir Fras. Mason, also on the Mediterranean station; and since 31 Dec. 1844, has been again employed on the coast of Africa, in the Ranger sloop, Capt. Jas. Anderson. Agent — John P. Muspratt.
