Notes on Officer


Arden Adderley, whose family is of great antiquity in the co. of Stafford, is third son of the late Ralph Adderley, Esq., of Coton, by Dorothy, daughter of Thos. 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. Sir Henry Trollope and Herbert Sawyer, Juste 80, Capts. Sir H. Trollope, Rich. Dacres, and Sir Edm. Nagle, Culloden 74, Capt. Henry Lane, Tonnant 80, Capt. Edw. Pellew, and Victory 100, flag-ship of Lord Nelson. Being promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, 6 April, 1804, in the Madras 54, Capt. Chas. Marsh Schomberg, he next, in that capacity, joined the Superb 74, Capt. Rich. Goodwin Keats, and had an opportunity of sharing in the action off St. Domingo, 6 Feb. 1806. 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. His subsequent appointments appear to have been – 24 Aug. 1809, to the Goldfinch sloop, on the north coast of Spain – 22 Oct. 1810, to the Echo 18, on the Downs station, where, on 21 Feb. 1811, he took La Confiance French privateer, of 16 guns and 62 men – and 14 Aug. 1814, to the Crocus 14, in which vessel he further captured, in the Mediterranean, 4 Sept. 1812, the Formica settee, of 2 guns and 25 men. Capt. Adderley, who was posted, 19 July, 1814, into the Swiftsure 74, bearing the flag in the Mediterranean of Vice-Admiral John Laughame, left that ship on her return home in the following October, and did not again go afloat. He took the retired half-pay 1 Oct. 1846.

He married Anne, only daughter of W. R. Bishton, Esq., of Shakerley House, co. Salop.
