Notes on Officer


BiographyNBD1849

Charles Philip Butler Bateman, born in 1776, at Wormley, in Hertfordshire, is son of the late Nathaniel Bateman, Esq., an old Post-Captain.

This officer entered the Navy, in May, 1790, as Fst.-cl. Vol., on board the Bellona 74, Capt. Fras. John Hartwell, stationed in the Channel; and, after serving in the Minerva 44, and Crown 64, both commanded by Capt. Robt. Manners Sutton, in the East Indies, became, in 1792, Midshipman of the Penelope 32, Capt. Bartholomew Sam. Rowley, in which vessel, when in company with the Iphigenia 32, he took part, 25 Nov. 1793, off St. Domingo, in a warm action of half an hour, which terminated in the capture, with a loss to the Penelope of 1 man killed and 7 wounded, of the French 36-gun frigate L’Inconstante. Removing next to the Boyne 98, bearing the flag of Sir John Jervis, Mr. Bateman, in 1794, witnessed the reduction of the French West India islands, and was slightly wounded while employed on shore at the attack on Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadeloupe. Having further served on board L’Aimable 32, and Majestic 74, flagships of Sir John Laforey, he was promoted to a Lieutenancy, 31 Oct. 1795, in the Scipio 64, Capts. Robt. M‘Douall, Fras. Laforey, and Chas. Sydney Davers, while under whom he participated in the reduction of the Dutch settlement of Demerara, and on that occasion, as at the subsequent destruction of a Spanish squadron near Trinidad, was again wounded. From 4 Jan. 1798 until promoted to the rank of Commander, 29 April, 1802, he served in the Monarch 74, and London 98, bearing the flags in the North Sea and Baltic of Admiral Sir Rich. Onslow, Archibald Dickson, and Sir Hyde Parker; in the first named of which ships he fought, as Second Lieutenant, at Copenhagen, where his Captain, Robt. Jas. Mosse, was killed. Dunng the two years and a half immediately preceding hia attainment of Post-rank, 25 Sept. 1806, we find Capt. Bateman commanding in succession the Kitty, Bonetta, and Gannet sloops, the two former employed in afibrding protection to the different convoys in the North Sea, and the latter in escorting the trade to the Mediterranean. His subsequent appointments were – 25 Sept. 1809, to the Scipion 74, bearing the flag in the Bay of Biscay of Hon. Robt. Stopford – in the course of 1812 to the Revenge 74, flag-ship of Hon. Arthur Kaye Legge, and Stately 64, off Cadiz, where, on becoming Senior Officer, he effected the dismantlement of the English dockyard – and, 12 April, 1813, to the Impetueux 74, which ship he brought home and paid off in the following June. He has not since been employed. His advancement to Flag-rank took place 23 Nov. 1841.

The Rear-Admiral married, in 1809, Lucy, third daughter of Wm. Chetwynd, Esq., of Ham Common, co. Surrey, and Hampstead, co. Cork, by whom he has issue a son and five daughters. Agents – Messrs. Halford and Co.
