Admiral Sir John Norris (circa 1660-1749)
Norris fought at the Battle of Malaga in 1704 and as captain of the fleet at the taking of Barcelona in 1705 was sent home with the despatches. In 1715 he started a long service in the Baltic, first protecting Anglo-Dutch traders, then in command of an Anglo-Dutch and Russian fleet against the Swedes. Finally from 1719 to 1721 he commanded an Anglo-Danish-Swedish fleet against the Russians. At an advanced age, during which time this portrait was painted, he commanded the Channel fleet from 1729 to 1744, in the War of Jenkin's Ear and the early part of that of the Austrian Succession.
