The Spanish 74-gun ship, 'Glorioso', was on her way to Cadiz from Ferrol, where she had landed treasure, when she was attacked by a number of English ships including the 'Royal family' squadron of privateers commanded by Commodore Walker. She was engaged by several ships of inferior force including Walker's privateer the 'King George', 32 guns, which kept up a close but unequal struggle for several hours, and the 'Dartmouth', 50 guns, which blew up. After a five-hour battle, the 'Glorioso' was finally captured by the 'Russell', 80 guns, which was returning half-manned from the Mediterranean. Charles Brooking (172359) Unde the patronage of Taylor White and commission from him for the Foundling Hosptial, Brooking became a most celebrated marine painter whose pupils may well have included Serres and Swaine.
