Captain Sir Thomas Ussher (1779-1848)

A half-length portrait showing Ussher in his captain's full dress uniform wearing the CB and the star and neck decoration of a KCH; his right elbow rests on a gun barrel. Thomas Ussher was the eldest son of the astronomer Doctor Henry Ussher (1741–1790). He entered the Navy in the ‘Squirrel’ in January 1791 and saw action in 1794 in the ‘Invincible’ at the Glorious First of June. He served in the ‘Prince George’, the ‘Glory’, the ‘Thunderer’, and the ‘Minotaur’. He was confirmed in the rank of lieutenant in the brig ‘Pelican’ on 17 July 1797. Appointed then to the ‘Trent’ in May 1799, he returned home in September 1800. Service followed in various cutters and brigs before he was promoted commander of the sloop ‘Redwing’, 18 guns, on 18 October 1806 and employed near Gibraltar defending trade from Spanish gunboats and privateers. His numerous acts of gallantry were rewarded with further promotion on 24 May 1808, freedom of the City of Dublin and a public dinner in his honour.
