Thank you, Cy. The source is Cooper, Donna H. "Haddock Heritage," 6th Edition. San Bernardino, CA: 2018 (available on Amazon), pages 138-140.
There was another Nicholas Haddock b. 25 Nov 1640, brother of Sir Richard, but the dates would not match up with this earlier Nicholas.

Hi
I think the information is erroneous.
No record of another Nicholas Haddock in the RN, but certainly Nicholas's son Nicholas was an MP (for Rochester 1754-1761, See above and History of Parliament online in the source list). I have transcribed the commission records for 1733 (in fact 1695-1755) and he's not there, nor is there a record of him as a VPO.
The Lieutenant of the Dolphin in 1733 (from 1732-1735) was Philip Toms.
Interesting to know what the source.

Did Admiral Nicholas Haddock (1685-1746) have a son Nicholas (1719-1781) who became an Admiral? This son is documented by birth-death records.
According to one source, the younger Nicholas entered the navy at Harrow in July 1732 as volunteer per order on board the Sunderland of 60 suns. In May 1733 [correct date?] he joined the Somerset of 80 guns, flagship of his (supposed) father, by whom on 29 Oct he was promoted to lieutenant of the Dolphin frigate. In Dec 1756 he was reportedly ordered to sit on the court martial of Admiral John Byng, but was moved to Dublin before Byng was executed.
On 21 Oct 1762 he was advanced to Vice Admiral and 29 Jan 1778 to Admiral.
Can you verify whether this data is accurate? I haven't found him in listings of admirals.
