A fine portrait of a British naval commander stationed in North America in the build up to the American War of Independence. Captain James Hawker (1730-86) commanded the 'Sardoine' sloop, patrolling the Eastern Seaboard to prevent smuggling. On several occasions he needed his contingent of marines to protect his ship from the colonists. On 30 January 1766, at the height of the Stamp Act crisis, he had the chief magistrate of Wilmington, Delaware, warn a mob that anyone approaching his ship would be fired on by the marines. In Charleston the following year, a party from 'Sardoine' boarded a suspected smuggling schooner and the populace threatened to use the batteries of Fort Johnson against the 'Sardoine'. Hawker served in the War of Independence before retiring in 1781. One of his three sons, Edward, became an admiral; three of his five daughters married admirals.
