Vice-Admiral Fitzroy Henry Lee (1699-1750)
The sitter was the son of Lady Charlotte Fitzroy, 1664-1718. She was a natural daughter of Charles II and Barbara Villiers, Duchess of Cleveland. He entered the Navy in 1717 and commanded the 'Pembroke', 60 guns, in the Mediterranean, 1738-1742. In 1746 he went as Commodore and Commander-in-Chief at the Leeward Islands, where the complaints of his drunken habits and neglect of duty are, though not substantiated, at least supported by his general reputation.
