Yep, the Southampton should have been his son. Corrected. Damn them for having the same name :(

The 1798/09 reference to Southampton must be wrong as he died following the Glorious First of June - suspect it was one of his relatives, perhaps his son.

John Harvey suffered three wounds on the 1st June and died of them on the 30th June 1794 at Portsmouth [the same day as Captain John Hutt] NB Southampton out of date range
