I am related to a John Manley who was a Vice Admiral 1744-1816. Assuming this is my 4 x great grandfather does anyone have a picture of him. I do and it has no identification on the picture other than on the back written that he is the great great uncle Manley of my Great Aunt Florence Maud Drawbridge

Is this the same John Manley who was captain of HMS Apollo from 1796 to 1798?
