Sir Thomas Allin, 1st Baronet (1612-1685) was an officer of the Royal Navy who saw service in the English Civil War, and the Second and Third Anglo-Dutch Wars. A Royalist during the Civil War, he returned to service after the Restoration and eventually rose to the rank of Admiral after serving under some of the most distinguished military figures of the era, including Prince Rupert of the Rhine. He remained in the service of Prince Rupert of the Rhine in the exiled royalist fleet after the Civil War, as evidenced by the issuing of Prince Rupert's Further Instructions for Captain Thomas Allen. He commanded the Royalists' Charles in 1648 until her capture in 1649, and subsequently commanded the Convertine in 1650. Allin was rewarded for his loyalty to the monarchy after the English Restoration by being given command of HMS Dover on 24 June 1660. He went on to command HMS Plymouth and HMS Foresight during 1661, HMS Lion during 1662 and HMS Rainbow during 1663.[2] During 1663 he was made commander in chief in the Downs with the rank of commodore, flying his pennant aboard HMS St Andrew from 15 April 1664. Allin was then nominated to succeed Sir John Lawson as commander in the Mediterranean, and sailed to take up his command aboard the Plymouth from 26 June, and in company with HMS Crown. He operated out of Tangiers initially, and while operating in the Straits of Gibraltar he and his fleet intercepted and engaged the Dutch Smyrna fleet on 9 December, capturing and sinking several of the Dutch ships. Allin returned to England in the spring of 1665, and took part in the Battle of Lowestoft on 13 June 1665. For his achievements he was awarded a knighthood on 24 June and was appointed an Admiral of the Blue squadron under the Earl of Sandwich. He flew his flag in HMS Royal James from 19 July 1665 and became an Admiral of the White on 16 March 1666. Prince Rupert then came aboard, with orders to take the squadron into the English Channel to intercept a French fleet believed to sailing up the Channel to join with the Dutch. Rupert retained Allin as his first captain for this assignment, but the intelligence was proved to be false, and no French fleet was found. By now though the rest of the English fleet under the Duke of Albemarle had sailed out to engage a Dutch fleet under Michiel de Ruyter, and the Four Days Battle had broken out. Rupert and Allin hurried back and met up with the harried and outnumbered English fleet on the third day, managing to hold the Dutch off long enough to allow a successful disengagement and then covering the retreat. The next engagement with the Dutch fleet took place on 4 August 1666, at the St. James's Day Battle. Allin was in command of the van squadron, and led the attack, engaging the Dutch van throughout the day, and chasing them from the battle scene the following day, greatly contributing to the English victory. Allin was then placed in command of a squadron off Dungeness, and on 17 September he captured the French ship Rubis, which was taken into service as HMS French Ruby. Allin's next command was to take over the Mediterranean forces in 1668, after the end of the Second Anglo-Dutch War, and to operate against the Barbary corsairs. A treaty was duly signed with the Algerians, but by 1669 Allin was employed again in chastising the pirates for breaches of the treaty, during which time he captured and destroyed a large number of pirate vessels. He returned to England after this and on 15 April 1671 he became Comptroller of the Navy, a post he held throughout the Third Anglo-Dutch War and continued to hold until 28 January 1680. In 1673 Allin was created a baronet for his services. He briefly returned to active service in 1678 when the threat of war with France emerged, and Allin became commander in chief of the fleet in the Narrow Seas, with HMS Royal James as his flagship. He resigned the command once the threat of war had passed.

Charles William de la Poer Beresford, 1st Baron Beresford GCB GCVO (1846-1919), known as Lord Charles Beresford until 1916, was a British Admiral and Member of Parliament. He combined the two careers of the navy and a member of parliament, making a reputation as a hero in battle and champion of the navy in the House of Commons. He was a well-known and popular figure who courted publicity, widely known to the British public as "Charlie B". He was considered by many to be a personification of John Bull, indeed was normally accompanied by his trademark, a bulldog. His later career was marked by a longstanding dispute with Admiral of the Fleet Sir John Fisher, over reforms championed by Fisher introducing new technology and sweeping away traditional practices. Fisher, slightly senior to Beresford and more successful, became a barrier to Beresford's rise to the highest office in the navy. Beresford rose to occupy the most senior sea commands, the Mediterranean and Channel fleets, but failed in his ambition to become First Sea Lord.

George Cranfield Berkeley (1753 - 1818), admiral, entered the navy in 1766 on board the Mary yacht, under the flag of his cousin, Rear-admiral Keppel, then appointed to carry over to Denmark the unfortunate Caroline Matilda. Young Berkeley was for some time the queen's page, and was afterwards appointed to the Guernsey, 50 guns, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Pallisser, then going out as governor of Newfoundland. Here he had the peculiar advantage of instruction from Mr. Gilbert, then master of the Guernsey, and afterwards of the Resolution with Captain Cook, and assisted him in the survey of the coast of Newfoundland and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. In 1812 he retired altogether from active, and indeed from public life; for twenty-seven years (1783 - 1810) he had represented Gloucestershire in parliament, and had been a persistent supporter of Pitt, and an uncompromising opponent of the Addington ministry.

Admiral James Berkeley, 3rd Earl of Berkeley KG, PC (1680-1736). In 1701 he started his naval career, and was appointed captain of the Sorlings frigate. When, in 1703-4, he father was summoned to the House of Lords, Berkeley was sent to join Sir George Rooke in the Mediterranean and was present at the Battle of Malaga. He then went on to join Sir Clowdisley Shovell, where he was prominently engaged in the siege of Toulon. In 1707-8 he was raised to flag rank and was promoted to vice-admiral of the blue, acting as second in command under Sir George Byng during the operations in the Forth and on the coast of Scotland. The death of his father meant that he became the Earl of Berkeley, and was appointed lord-lieutenant of the county of Gloucester. He was later removed from this office in 1711 and was reappointed on the accession of George I. In 1717 he was appointed first lord commissioner of the admiralty, and continued in that post for ten years. During the short war with Spain he was appointed commander-in-chief of the fleet in the Channel. After this cruise, on 15 April 1719 Berkeley struck his flag and held no further command at sea, but five times he was one of the lords justices when the king went to Hanover. In April 1718 he was installed as a knight of the Garter, and the number of honorary appointments which he held was very great. Member of the KitKat Club.

Half portrait of Admiral William Bligh (1754-1817) was an Admiral in the British Royal Navy and served as Governor of New South Wales. Bligh was involved in several rebellions one being the historic mutiny of the HMS Bounty of 1789 in which Bligh and eighteen loyal sailors we set adrift off the coast of Tahiti in the Bounty's launch. In a feat of extraordinary skill the crew were able to navigate 3,618 nautical miles to the nearest European settlement, a journey which took 47 days. Bligh's reputation for being a strict disciplinarian led to him being given the post of Governor of New South Wales. However, once again Bligh was subject to rebellion, and was arrested by Major Johnston leader of the New South Wales Corps. Johnston was eventually court martialled for his actions and Bligh offered a backdated promotion to rear admiral.

On the return voyage they visited Sir Walter Raleigh's colony at Roanoke, Virginia. In 1588 he was appointed constable of Carrickfergus, County Antrim, then governor of Ulster. The portrait is from a set of English admirals all engraved by Boissard.

Engraving. 560 x 432mm. 22 x 17". Some small tears around in edges. Stain to top right-hand corner.
Admiral Sir Henry Ducie Chads, GCB (1788-1868) was an officer in the British Royal Navy who saw action from the Napoleonic Wars to the Crimean War. He entered the Royal Naval Academy at 12 years of age, and in 1803 embarked aboard the 74-gun ship of the line HMS Excellent, sharing in the defence of Gaeta and the capture of Capri. He later distinguished himself at the occupation of the Île de la Passe, gateway to the Île de France. In 1823, he was prominent in the expedition against Rangoon, as a result of which he was made Post Captain, created C.B. and received the thanks of the Government of India, and praise in the British House of Commons. In 1841-5 he was on the Chinese station in command of HMS Cambrian, and then commanded the Royal Navy’s gunnery school HMS Excellent. Chads reformed the whole system of naval gunnery, both as regards weight of metal and rapidity of fire. He was promoted Rear Admiral in 1854 and was third in command of the fleet sent to the Baltic under Sir Charles Napier, who claimed that Chads ‘knew more about gunnery than any man in the service'. He was one of the leaders in the bombardment and capture of the fortress of Bomarsund. He struck his flag in 1855, and as a reward for his services was created a K.C.B. From 1856 to the end of 1858, he held the command-in-chief in Ireland and in 1865 was created G.C.B. and received the Admiral's good service pension.

The Glorious First of June (also known as the Third Battle of Ushant and in French as the Bataille du 13 prairial an 2) was a naval battle fought in the Atlantic Ocean on June 1, 1794 between the Royal Navy and the navy of Revolutionary France. It was the first major naval battle of the French Revolutionary Wars. On the 1st of June and at about a quarter past eight Howe bore down on the French, throwing his whole line on them at once from end to end, with orders to pass through from windward to leeward, and so to place the British ships on the French ships' line of retreat. It was a bold departure from the then established methods of fighting, and most honourable in a man of sixty-eight, who had been trained in the old school. Its essential merit was that it produced a close mêlée, in which the better average gunnery and seamanship of the British fleet would tell. Lord Howe's orders were not fully obeyed by all his captains, but a signal victory was won. The battle rapidly turned into a general mêlée which lasted all day. The French ships Sans-Pareil, Juste, America, Impétueux, Northumberland, and Achille were taken, and the Vengeur du Peuple sank after a four-hour duel with HMS Brunswick. When the French withdrew, many of the British ships were in no condition to pursue: Defence and Marlborough were completely dismasted and had to be towed back to port.

Engraving. Sheet: 300 x 395mm (12 x 15½"). Trimmed to image, paper tone and creasing. 18/19th century impression.
Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596) the most famous of all English seafarers, large globe in left background. This print has an interesting history: the plate was started during Drake's lifetime, hence the date of 1580 on the print (the artist is widely believed to be Jodocus Hondius although Remigius Hogenburg has also been suggested). The plate was left unfinished (an example of the print in its unfinished state is in the British Museum, registration no. O,8.86) until in the 18th century the printmaker and antiquary George Vertue purchased the plate from Drake's descendants and completed it. Drake earned his fame and fortune through his skilful seamanship and outstandindingly successful piracy. His circumnavigation of the globe from 1577-81 involved a number of very profitable raids on Spanish ships and ports. His increasingly frequent and serious attacks during the 1580s were an important factor contributing to Philip II's decision to launch the Armada against English in 1588. Drake served as vice-admiral of the English fleet which defeated the Armada.
