Richard Deane, General at Sea (1610-1653)
Deane was a Commonwealth soldier who commanded the Parliamentary artillery at the Battle of Naseby in 1642 and became Comptroller of Ordnance in the New Model Army. He was appointed General-at-Sea in 1650, which equated to the rank of admiral, and conveyed Cromwell's expedition to Ireland. He also commanded the fleet that supported Cromwell's Scottish campaign, played a leading role in the later Civil War and was active in bringing King Charles I to trial. On the outbreak of the First Anglo-Dutch War in 1652 he was given joint command of the fleet with Blake and they commanded at the Battle of Portland, 1653. Later that year he shared the command with Monck and was killed in action at his side in the 'Resolution', 85 guns, at the Battle of the Gabbard.
