Footnotes

  • Edward Hawke was born in 1774, married Frances Harvey, daughter and heiress of Stanhope Harvey of Wormersley Park, Yorkshire and adopted the additional name of Harvey in 1796.

    In 1805 he inherited the barony granted to his grandfather, the distinguished British sailor who became C-in-C of the Fleet and First Lord of the Admiralty, having commanded the force that defeated the French and won the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759.
