Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Hopson (1642-1717)
Sir Thomas Hopson is best remembered for his services at Vigo Bay in 1702, when as vice-admiral of the red squadron in the 'Torbay', he broke the boom and led the allies into the French fleet, taking a principal and very gallant part in the ensuing action. He wears a dark brown full-bottomed wig and holds a sword in his right hand. The 'Torbay', 80 guns, is in the left background, red at the fore, with boats around her.
