Captain Sir Edward Berry (1768-1831)
Berry, like Nelson, came from Norfolk. His long association with Nelson began when he served as his first lieutenant in the 'Agamemnon'. He was with him as a volunteer additional commander in the 'Captain' at Cape St Vincent and was his flag-captain in the 'Vanguard' throughout the campaign that ended with the Battle of the Nile. He was given the honour of carrying home Nelson's report of the victory but was captured by the 'GÃ”Ã²Ã¡â”¬Â«nÃ”Ã²Ã¡â”¬Â«reux', one of the French ships that escaped from Aboukir Bay. In 1805 Berry was himself captain of the 'Agamemnon' at Trafalgar.
