Cuthbert Collingwood, Baron Collingwood (1748-1810), Admiral. As second-in-command at Trafalgar he engaged the enemy first and took the command on Nelson's death, but lost many of the prize ships by neglecting Nelson's last order. Besides that action he blockaded Cadiz 1797-8, Brest 1799-1805 and Toulon 1808-10, eventually dying at sea.
