    Maybe that should be called Captain Over and not Admiral Vernon.

    The name of this pub recalls the royal charter granted to Hull Corporation, in 1447, to elect a suitable and discreet man as Admiral of the Humber. The city’s Lord Mayor is still elected to that office, although its power no longer exists. This site is part of Grosvenor House which, itself, was built on the site of the Master Mariner Almshouse, erected in 1834. It was known to the inmates as The Ship, from the carving of a ship’s hull on top of this grand building. In 1937, there were 48 inmates. Four years later, the almshouse was destroyed by enemy action, with the site cleared in the 1950s.

    Name:  Sir william Curtis.jpg
Views: 103
Size:  21.0 KB

    Admiral of the Fleet Sir Lucius Curtis, 2nd Baronet, KCB, DL (3 June 1786 14 January 1869) was a senior officer of the Royal Navy during the nineteenth century. The son of Sir Roger Curtis, 1st Baronet, Lord Howe's flag captain at the Glorious First of June, Lucius served during the Napoleonic Wars and was heavily involved in the Mauritius campaign of 1810. During this campaign, Curtis commanded the frigate HMS Magicienne with the blockade squadron under Josias Rowley and was still in command when the ship was destroyed at the Battle of Grand Port. Magicienne grounded on a coral reef early in the engagement and despite the best efforts of Curtis and his crew, the ship had to be abandoned, Curtis setting her on fire to prevent her subsequent capture.
    After Curtis was freed from captivity in December 1810, he was cleared of any wrongdoing in the loss of his ship and returned to his naval career. He later rose to become an Admiral of the Fleet. As his eldest son predeceased him, the baronetcy in 1869 passed to his second son, Arthur.

    Here is Mariner's Harbor restaurant and pub on the Roundout Creek (which feeds the Hudson River) in Kingston not far from my home. Kingston was the first capital of New York and was burned to the ground in a combined naval and army raid in 1777. I was going to add an account of this action (including Royal Navy and Army after action reports) in the historical discussions thread on this site, but that appears to be only for Napoleonics, so I will put it in the Wardroom for those interested.

    Hi Bill.
    By no means are the Historical posts restricted to Napoleonics.
    In fact I intend to run some Revolution action, and 1812 myself if I ever get the chance to get on to it.
    Do go ahead and add your account to our growing historical knowledge.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
