About this Item

Navy Office [London], 2 May 1801. Sirr John Henslow (1730-1815) was Surveyor to the Navy, a post he held jointly or solely from 1784 to 1806. Harry Harmood was commissioned lieutenant in February 1759, being first noted as second lieutenant of the 'Aquilon' that year, first of the 'Arethusa' in 1771 and third of the 'Eagle' in 1776. As a commander from February 1777 he commanded the 'Falcon' 16-gun sloop, which was the smallest of seven British warships burnt in Narragansett Bay in 1778, during the American War. He was promoted captain from October 1778 in the 'Conqueror', 74-guns and in this ship was flag-captain to Rear-Admiral Hyde Parker in Byron's unsuccessful attempt to prevent the French taking Grenada in the West indies in July 1779.
