Captain Frederick Marryat (1792-1848), a naval officer and artist who became a novelist when he retired from the sea in 1830. After serving with Lord Cochrane (inspiration for Hornblower and Aubrey) during the Napoleonic Wars, he commanded the ship that brought back the despatches announcing the death of Napoleon on Saint Helena (also sketching the former emperor on his deathbed). He then took part in the 1824 expedition against Burma, publishing his sketches. He also devised a system of maritime signalling known as Marryat's Code. As a novelist he is particularly known for 'Mr Midshipman Easy' and his children's novel 'The Children of the New Forest'.
