does not look like the same person
28 Jul 1801 the remains of Sir John Colleton, late commander of the cutter Swift, on the Guernsey Station, were interred at Weymouth. The corpse was carried by six seamen to the grave, and the pall was supported by six naval Officers. The deceased was only 26 years of age.
