Flagmen of Lowestoft: Sir Jeremiah Smith (d. 1675)
Smith fought as a captain against the Dutch in the First Dutch War and in the Second he commanded the 'Mary', 62 guns, at the Battle of Lowestoft in 1665. He was Admiral of the Blue squadron in the Four Days Fight and the St James's Day Fight in 1666. Smith quarrelled bitterly with Sir Robert Holmes who accused him of cowardice. The portrait is inscribed 'Sir Jeremiah Smith', and it is one of the 'flagmen' portraits commissioned by Charles II's brother James, Duke of York, after the Battle of Lowestoft.
