He was employed in landing the British troops in Egypt, in 1801, as Captain to the fleet under Lord Keith, and was frequently engaged in similar important services. He conducted the landing at the conquest of Martinico, of the Saints, and the Isle of France. His health was much impaired in the expedition to Java. Though only 47 years old, he had seen 36 years active service in all parts of the world. He has left a widow and six children.
