Flagmen of Lowestoft: Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Teddeman (1620-1668)
Apart from some service in the Mediterranean in 1660 little is known of Teddeman until, under Sandwich, he fought as Rear- Admiral of the Blue squadron off Lowestoft in 1665. He was knighted for this service. Shortly afterwards, still under Sandwich, he went to Bergen to attack Dutch Indiamen but was beaten off, since the Dutch were assisted by the Danish shore batteries. Despite this defeat he was successful the following year as a flag officer at the Four Days Fight and the St James's Day victory. The portrait is inscribed 'Sir Thomas Tiddyman' and is one of the 'flagmen' portraits commissioned by Charles II's brother James, Duke of York after the Battle of Lowestoft.
