Captain Richard Chadwick (d.1748)
A three-quarter-length portrait to right in a grey silk coat, a silver-laced yellow silk waistcoat and a grey bag wig. The 'Cornwall', 80 guns, with the flag of a vice-admiral of the white, is in the right background. The portrait was painted after June and probably before November 1744, when Chadwick sailed as flag-captain to Vice-Admiral Davers in the 'Cornwall' with a squadron to the West Indies. On the death of Davers, Rear-Admiral Knowles took his place and, in March 1748, the 'Cornwall' took the principal part in the reduction of the French-occupied fort at Port Louis, Guadalope. Chadwick died in June following, while still in the 'Cornwall'.
