Admiral Sir Francis Geary (1709/10-1796)
Geary was a rear-admiral under Hawke in 1759, but was not present at the Quiberon Bay action that November. In May 1780 Sandwich appointed him, then 70-years-old, to the command of the Channel fleet on the death of Sir Charles Hardy, during a critical period of threatened French invasion. The fleet was at sea for 76 days, and on his return to Spithead in August Geary, worn out, gave up the command for health reasons.
