PARBKER, Sir WILLIAM, Bart. behaved with great bravery on the 28th of May, 1794, engaging La Revolutionnaire, of 120 guns, the rear ship in the French line, when he commanded the Audacious of 74 guns, and obliged her to quit the line and separate from the fleet. Sent to Jamaica in 1795. In 1797, commanded a division of the fleet under Lord St,???; in the action on the 14th of February; for which he was created a baronet, and presented with a gold chain and medal. He died December 1802.
