Rear-Admiral Sir John Jervis, 1st Earl of St Vincent (1735-1823)
Jervis earned a reputation as both a highly professional fighting captain and a disciplinarian during the Seven Years War and the War of American Independence, was knighted in 1782 and promoted rear-admiral in 1787. A vice-admiral at the start of the French Revolutionary War, he and General Sir Charles (later Earl) Grey captured Martinique and Guadeloupe in 1794. As an admiral, he became commander-in-chief in the Mediterranean in 1795. With Admiralty approval he was responsible for detaching Nelson to reconnoitre the Mediterranean early in 1798 and then reinforcing him with the squadron that defeated the French at the Battle of the Nile that August.
