Captain John Croft Hawkins (1798-1851)
A three-quarter-length portrait seated in captain's undress uniform of the Indian Navy. The presence of a gold ring on the cuff may mean that the painting was done when he was Acting Superintendent or Commodore. After recovering from a severe attack of typhus in 1811 when in the Royal Navy, Hawkins transferred to the Bombay Marine. He was very effective there and received the thanks of the British Ministry twice and of the Bombay government seven times. In 1830 he was arrested on a charge of piracy and after a sensational trial sentenced to seven years transportation. However he was granted a free pardon by the King.
