Footnotes

  • Sir Robert Brice Kingsmill was an officer of the Royal Navy who served during the Seven Years' War, the American War of Independence and the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars in a career that spanned nearly 60 years. His career was not marked by as many significant engagements as those of some of his contemporaries, although he did serve with Rodney in the West Indies and with Keppel at Ushant. He was also active on the political scene as a Member of Parliament, resuming his service in the Navy as and when war broke out. Kingsmill died at Sydmonton Court having attained the rank of Admiral of the Blue six years earlier.
