In 1780 he was appointed to the Prothée, a ship previously seized from the French. He then served with Rodney until returning to England in 1783. He was promoted Rear-Admiral of the Blue in 1793 and raised to the White in the following year. In 1795 he replaced Vice-Admiral Dalrymple at the Nore. He was raised to the rank of Vice-Admiral of the White the same year and over the following years, Admiral of the Blue (1799), of the White (1805) and of the Red (1808).
