Admiral Sir Edward Codrington (1770-1851)
A three-quarter length portrait of Codrington. He is wearing a black coat and is shown seated to right in a red plush chair. The sitter was a signal officer in the 'Queen Charlotte', Howe's flagship at the First of June 1794. At Trafalgar in 1805 he commanded the 'Orion'. In 1814 he became captain of the fleet to Sir Alexander Cochrane who was in charge of the naval operations against the Americans. In 1826 he became Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean, and in 1827 commanded the Anglo-Franco-Russian fleet which enforced peace between the Turks and the Greeks as agreed by the Treaty of London. This involved destroying the combined Turkish and Egyptian fleets at Navarin in October 1827. He commanded the Channel squadron in 1831 and was Commander-in-Chief in Portsmouth from 1839-1842.
