Kynnersley, Esq., of Loxley Park, and widow of Thos. Byrche Savage, Esq., of Elmley Castle, co. Worcester. He is next brother of the present Ralph Adderley, Esq., of Barlaston and Coton Halls; and uncle of Chas. Bowyer Adderley, Esq., M.P. for North Staffordshire.
This officer entered the Navy 4 June, 1796, and afterwards served as Midshipman, on the Irish, West India, Home, and Mediterranean stations, in the Russell 74, Capts.

While afterwards serving in the Hibernia 110, flag-ship in the Channel of Earl St. Vincent, he was advanced to the rank of Commander, by commission dated 4 Aug. in the latter year.

He took the retired half-pay 1 Oct. 1846.
