Sir George Walton (1665-1739)
While commanding the 'Carcass', 1701-1702, Walton went to the West Indies with a squadron under Vice-Admiral John Benbow, who in March 1702 appointed him to the 'Ruby'. She was one of the squadron with Benbow in the actions with Admiral Jean-Baptiste Du Casse, 19-24 August 1702, off Cape Santa Marta (Columbia), when Walton was the only captain who loyally supported his admiral. In 1718 he played a notable part in Sir George Byng's action off Cape Passaro, 31 July 1718.
