Captain Sir Christopher Cole (1770-1836)

The sitter joined the Navy as midshipman at the age of nine or ten. He remained at sea until the start of the French Revolutionary War, when he was flag-captain to Lord Hugh Seymour, before taking command of the frigate 'Southampton' in 1800. In 1804 he went as flag captain to Sir Edward Pellew in the 'Culloden' to the East Indies. There he made his reputation in 1810 when he captured Neira, the principle Dutch spice island in the Banda group. For a time, on the death of Admiral Drury, he was commander-in-chief and later took a leading part in the capture of Java. He left the sea in 1814 after an almost unbroken service of 34 years and went into Parliament as MP of Glamorganshire in 1817. In 1828 he succeeded Sir William Hoste as captain of the 'Royal Sovereign' yacht.
