Edward Boscawen(1711-1761), Admiral
Sitter in 9 portraits
Edward Boscawen joined the navy at the age of fifteen, and his talent as an officer meant he was soon promoted. He took great care over the wellbeing of his men, but would not accept incompetence; his aggression in battle earned him the nickname 'Old Dreadnaught'. He also had a parliamentary career, representing Truro in Cornwall from 1742.
