Stirrup hilted sword which belonged to Rear Admiral Sir James Clark Ross (1800-1862) by Drury & Son zoom

Stirrup hilted sword which belonged to Rear Admiral Sir James Clark Ross (1800-1862)

This sword is of the 1805-1827 pattern but has been dated 1825 because that seems to be the probable correct date. It was given to the Museum by Captain T D Ross, R N, a direct descendant of James Clark Ross. James Ross was shipwrecked in 1825 when serving in the 'Fury' and it is likely that he lost his sword on that occasion and that this one, which has the modified stirrup hilt of later swords of the 1805 pattern, was a replacement. Admiral Sir James Clark Ross entered the Navy in 1812; Lieutenant 1822; Captain 1834; Rear Admiral 1856; died 1862. He took part in Parry's 3rd voyage in 1824-1825 and discovered the North Magnetic Pole 1829-1833. He sailed to Antarctica in 1839 and discovered Mount Erebus, Ross Barrier and Victoria Land. He returned in 1843 and was knighted. Commanded the expedition searching for Franklin 1848-1849.
