Admiral Nicholas Haddock (1686-1746)
A three-quarter-length portrait facing slightly to left in a red velvet coat with gold embroidered button-holes and edging to the sword belt. Haddock distinguished himself early in his naval career, at the Battle of Vigo Bay in 1702. In 1707 he was promoted captain and while commanding the 'Grafton', 70 guns, was the leading ship in Admiral Byng, Viscount Torrington's, victory at Cape Passaro in 1718. He was Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean during the War of Jenkins's Ear, 1739-1740. Although he took many rich Spanish vessels, including two treasure ships, he failed to come to grips with the Spanish fleet.
