John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, 1st Lord of the Admiralty (1718-1792)
Sandwich was First Lord of the Admiralty on three separate occasions, 1748-1751, 1763-1765 and 1771-1782. During the War of American Independence in particular he initiated notable reforms, especially in the dockyards and ship construction, which proved critical in the sailing navy's later success against Revolutionary France. He also initiated an attempt to reach the North Pole and was a firm supporter of the voyages of Captain Cook, who named the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) in the Pacific after him.
