Hello...this John Mowbray had a father named Captain John Mowbray and a brother named George Mowbray. Do you have any details on the father and brother? Thanks and love your site!

John Mowbray commanded the East Florida provincial armed ship Germain when the Admiralty was instructed to put the Germain on the Navy establishment and to commission Mowbray, if qualified. VAdm Arbuthnot convened a Lieutenant's examination board and on 23 Mar 1780 he received his Lieutenant's Passing Certificate (ADM 6/88, pp.134-137) and on 28 Mar 1780 VAdm Arbuthnot commissioned him as Lieutenant, Germain (ADM 1/486, ff.373-375); however, I find no record of Admiralty confirming the commission as late as 23 Mar 1787 when the Navy Office certified the 9 years 12 weeks 6 days service stated on his 1780 Passing Certificate. His service included: Royal Ann (1st/100), Captain's servant, 07 Sep 1758-28 Mar 1759; Trident (3d/64), Able > Midshipman, 31 Mar 1759-30 Sep 1760; Sutherland (4th/50), Ab > Mids., 01 Oct 1761-14 Mar 1762; Temple (3d/68), Mids., 15 Mar 1762-05 Mar 1763; Hornet ([brig-rigged] Sloop), Coxswain > Master's Mate > Master, 08 June 1763-05 Mar 1768.
