The Times, June 23rd, 1798:

" .... A Court Martial is now sitting at Sheerness on the conduct of a Lieutenant of the Navy, who commanded a brig on the late expedition to Ostend, charged with drunkeness. He was particularly entrusted with ammunition. ....."


A tall order, I realise, but does anyone know who the lieutenant was?

Post List of small vessels at Ostend
below is a list of all vessels commanded by Lieutenants in the raid on Ostend May 1798.

Wolverine (14) gun-brig Lieut. Donald M'Dougall who was replaced on April 16th 1798 by Commander Lewis M Mortlock before the Ostend expedition (so he's possible)
Blazer (14) gun-brig Lieut. Daniel Burgess
Harrier (?) Hired Gunboat Lieut. Thomas Lowen
Vesuve (3or4) schooner Lieut William Elliot
Crash (14) gun-brig Lieut. Bulkley Mackworth
Boxer (14) gun-brig Lieut. Thomas Gilbert
Acute (14) gun-brig Lieut. Jeremiah Seavers
Asp (14) gun-brig Lieut. Joseph Edmunds
Furnace (12) gun-brig Lieut. Maurice William Suckling
Vigilant (6) Hired Cutter - Commander unknown
Biter (14) gun-brig Lieut. John Denis de Vitre - replace 1798-07

from Clowes, Winfield and my database

note that brig-sloops (cruizer class etc.) were bigger and generally given to commanders, not lieutenants

hope it helps

Lieutenant Thomas Lowen was dismissed from the Navy in 1798 (Syrett & DiNardo).

Post More on Thomas Lowen
National Archive
Ref:PC 1/43/151
1799 Jan 10
Court martial: memorial of Thomas Lowen for restoration of rank

PROB 31/1018/780
Exhibit: 1808/780. Thomas Lowen, bachelor, seaman of HMS Jackal, formerly lieutenant of HMS Terrier [dismissed as lieutenant 1798]. Probate inventory, or declaration, of the estate of the same, deceased

Interestingly Terrier is also a hired brig (hired 1798-02-16 until 1800-10-15), It seems possible that Clowes has mistaken Harrier for Terrier and Lowen is your man (or the Archive has it wrong)

The Times, August 29th, 1792:

" .... On Saturday a Court-Nartial was held on board the Hector man of war ... on a charge brought by the Hon. Lord August Fitzroy, Third Lieut, of the Andromeda, against Robert Stiles Tremlett, one of the Midshipmen. ...... The charge was for general neglect of duty; which was proved in one instance.

The President delivered the following sentence:

'That Robert Stiles Tremlett be rendered incapable of receiving promotion in the Navy for twelve months, and be severely reprimanded; - and you are hereby severly reprimanded accordingly.' ...."



A list of the Members of the Court was included, and for further information Susan's entry for Tremlett on the main site.

Post Robert/Richard
interesting that the Times has a given name of Robert, when Susan (and my database) have Richard.

Is this the same man? Richard was commissioned Lieutenant on 12th May 1797.

I think the times is in error, and the Gentleman's Magazine followed them (or visa versa).

From Marshalls biography of Captain WILLIAM HENRY BROWN TREMLETT (posted 1802)

"The subject of this memoir's eldest brother, George Neate
Tremlett
, served as a Midshipman in the battle of June 1,
1794; assisted at the capture of three French men of war off
FOrient in June 23, 1795 ; and was present at the defeat of
M. Bompard by Sir John B. Warren, Oct. 12, 1798. His
name still appears on the list of Lieutenants, to which rank
he was promoted Aug. 1, 1794. Another brother, Richard
Stiles Tremlett
, Lieut. R. N., who had previously shared the
sufferings of the gallant Riou in H. M. S. Guardian, was
killed in a duel with the late Lord Camelford, at Martinique. "
