Notes on Officer


Carrierref:673

He seems to be making his career in the naval artillery and therefore does not have to sail much.
Note that at that time, the addition of marine artillery in many land battles was often used to compensate for the lack of conventional artillery.
Perhaps the injury received on the "Mars" in 1707 prevented her from sailing and he was therefore directed to non-embarked positions.
