Admiral of the Fleet Sir George Cockburn (1772-1853)

Sir George Cockburn served under Nelson in various engagements and took an important part in the Anglo-American war of 1812. He showed his skill as a naval commander in the operations on the Chesapeake, Sassafras, and Potomac rivers. He co-operated with General Ross at the battles of Bladensburg and Baltimore, and after the former battle entered the City of Washington and burnt the public buildings including the Senate and what is now the White House, so-painted thereafter to hide the damage. He was selected to convey Napoleon to St. Helena in the 'Northumberland' in 1815. Promoted Vice-Admiral in 1819, and Admiral in 1837, he was an important figure in the Navy's early adoption of steam-power and became First Sea Lord in 1841.
