The following three lots were all the property of Commander James Eaton (1783-1856/7). Eaton entered Naval service in 1799 as a First Class Voluneer aboard the Quebec(72) and enjoyed a busy active service during the first decade of the nineteenth century. He first saw action aboard Hannibal off Algeciras, 6th July, 1801. Grounded under enemy batteries, she lost 81 men and had 62 wounded before she struck her colours, Eaton possibly owing his life due to being stationioned in the mizzen-top. After a spell fighting smuggling, he was drafted in March 1804 to serve aboard the Temeraire. On leave he was hastily recalled to duty and fought at Trafalgar [see catalogue note]. During this action Eaton held the rank Signal Midshipman and received the Naval General Service Medal with two bars [Trafalgar and Java]. He went on to serve with further distinction aboard Lion (64) and Beaver (10) which included the bold and courageous rescue of a Swedish crew who were foundering in the teeth of a violent storm in 1813. In 1842 and now retired for some years, he reached the rank of Commander and survived until 1856/7.
