John Clements (d. 1705)
Clements's career from 1667 to 1689 was almost entirely in command of royal yachts. As captain of the 'Expedition', 70 guns, in the during King William's War, he fought in the Anglo-Dutch fleet against the French at the Battle of Beachy Head in 1690. His last command was the 96-gun 'St Andrew' and, probably under the patronage of Queen Anne's husband and Lord High Admiral, Prince George of Denmark, he was appointed the first Lieutenant-Governor of Greenwich Hospital in 1704. He died within a few months, after which his widow presented this portrait to the Hospital. It is the first painting which it owned.
