Admiral Edward Russell, 1st Earl of Orford (1653-1727)
Russell commanded the Anglo-Dutch fleet at the victorious Battle of Barfleur, 1692, and was Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean, 1694. On the orders of William III, he was the first British commander to over-winter at Cadiz (rather than sailing his squadron home in the autumn) and so inaugurated a policy that led to the acquisition of a Mediterranean base at Gibraltar in 1704 and the maintenance of a year-round British Mediterranean presence.
