Samuel Blyth (c.1784-1813), naval officer. Blyth commanded the HMS Boxer from September 1812, sailing for Halifax in the squadron of Sir John Borlase Warren in April 1813. The Boxer captured several small Amerian vessels that year, before Blyth died in September 1813 after engaging the American brig Enterprise. He was buried in Portland, Maine, with full military honours, and the subsequently-defeated Boxer was sold at auction in Portland.
