      SAMUEL DRUMMOND (BRITISH, 1765-1844) Portrait of Captain William Parker, R.N., 1801 commemorating his promotion at the age of 20 Oil on canvas 29¼ x 24½in. (74.5 x 63cm.) Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Parker, Baronet, GCB (1781-1866) was a nephew of Earl St. Vincent and a great favourite of Nelson's who wrote to the Earl Your nephew has very much pleased me, as indeed he always does.. I admire his spirit and resolution to attack.. under all the disadvantages of situation: such conduct will some happy day meet its reward. These words were indeed to prove prophetic and Parker enjoyed rapid promotion. In 1803 he was given command of the Amazon (38) and although part of Nelson's chase of Villeneuve, he was not present at Trafalgar as he was detached for service in the West Indies with Sir John Borlase Warren's squadron, arriving December 1805. On 14th March Amazon took a notable part in the capture of Marengo (74) and Belle Poule (40), taking the latter's surrender. Thereafter he was awarded many civil honours in addition to his naval promotion and became a Knight of the Bath in 1834 with the GCB ten years later. He became Admiral of the Fleet in April 1863 and died of bronchitis in November 1866.

      SAMUEL DRUMMOND (1765-1844) La bataille d’Aboukir, 1er août 1798 Huile sur toile 43,8 x 71,2 cm Provenance : Ernest Ruffer, Londres Newhouse Galleries, New York Collection privée, Etats Unis Collection privée, Midi de la France The Battle of the Nile was fought in Aboukir Bay, about 15 miles west of Alexandria, on 1st August 1798. Nelson having spent most of the summer cruising the western Mediterranean looking for Admiral Bruey’s Toulon fleet, finally came upon it as it lay at anchor in Aboukir Bay following the disembarkation of the army with wich Napoleon was to conquer Egypt. Brueys had chosen a strong position in a well-protected anchorage although Nelson had the avantage of surprise. More significantly, it was already six o’clock in the evening when Nelson sigthed the French and, with only two hours of daylight remaining. Brueys was confident that any attack would have to be postponed until the next day, by wich time his own fleet would be ready. Nelson, with typical daring, amazed both his captains as well as the French by ordering his ships into the Bay where they engaged the enemy in a spirited action wich lasted most of the night. The decisive moment came just after 10 o’clock when the French flagship, the huge 120-gun L’Orient, blew up with a tremendous explosion and, when dawn broke, the French annihilation became apparent with nine of their badly damaged ships captured and another four completely destroyed. It was a glorious victory for Nelson, one of the greatest in British naval history, and the one which brought thim the pinnacle of his career. Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson

      Est: £3,000 - £5,000

      Other Properties ATTRIBUTED TO SAMUEL DRUMMOND (BRITISH, 1765-1844) Captain William Rogers capturing the 'Jeune Richard', 1st October 1807 Oil on panel 27½ x 23in. (70 x 58.5cm.) A larger version of this dramatic painting is contained within the National Collection at Greenwich, Reference BHC0579, and was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1808, No. 276. The entry describes in full how the merchantman Windsor Castle was attacked in the Caribbean on the 1st October 1807 by the vastly superior French Privateer Jeune Richard. Not only did the Windsor Castle (under Acting Captain William Rogers, depicted heroically at the centre of this picture) repulse Jeune Richard's repeated attacks, but they mounted a successful counter attack with a boarding party which overwhelmed Jeune Richard's greater numbers and took her as a prize instead. It was much reported at the time and the crew of Windsor Castle were lavishly rewarded for their valour. ++This painting was acquired by the vendor's grandfather circa 1920 and was hung in rooms with open fires until almost completely obscured. It was recently professionally cleaned and conserved to a high standard and is in bright and fine condition overall.

      Samuel Drummond (1766-1844) - Portrait of Sir William Parker as a Naval Captain

      Est: £2,000 - £3,000

      Samuel Drummond (British, 1766-1844) Portrait of Captain Sir William Parker, RN (1781-1866), as a Naval Captain, when Captain of the D'Oiseau, aged 20, in 1801 oil on canvas h:74 w: 62 cm Provenance: Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Parker, 1st Baronet, GCB (1 December 1781 - 13 November 1866), and by descent. Exhibited: The Naval, Shipping and Fisheries Exhibition, London, 1905, Historic and Relic Section, lent by Lady Parker (exhibition label to the reverse). Admiral of the Fleet Sir William Parker, 1st Baronet, GCB (1 December 1781 – 13 November 1866), William Parker entered the Royal Navy in February 1793 as a captain's servant on the HMS Orion, serving under Captain John Thomas Duckworth. The Orion was part of the Channel fleet under Lord Howe and took part in the Battle of The Glorious First of June. When Captain Duckworth was assigned to another ship, Leviathan, Parker followed him, and sailed with him to the West Indies where Duckworth appointed him acting lieutenant of the frigate Magicienne. In May 1798 he was appointed to the Queen, flagship of Sir Hyde Parker, and on 1 May 1799 became acting captain of the Volage. During the next few months he cruised in the Gulf of Mexico and the coast of Cuba. In 1800 he returned to England and then spent nearly a year with the blockade fleet off Brest. He became post captain in October 1801. In November he assumed command of HMS Amazon, which he commanded for nearly 11 years. He was attached to the fleet under Admiral Lord Nelson and accompanied the fleet to the West Indies. The Amazon was then sent on a cruise westward and therefore missed the Battle of Trafalgar. She was later attached to a squadron under Sir John Borlase Warren, participating in the capture of the French ships Marengo and Belle Poule at the Action of 13 March 1806. Parker was almost constantly on the move with the Amazon, mainly along the coast of Spain and Portugal, until January 1812 when the ship was paid off. Parker purchased Shenstone Lodge near Lichfield, where he lived for the next 15 years. In 1827, however, he returned to sea as captain of HMS Warspite, and acted in 1828 as senior officer off the coast of Greece. In December that year he was appointed to command the royal yacht. On 22 July 1830 he was promoted to the rank of rear-admiral and in April 1831 was appointed second in command of the Channel Squadron, under Sir Edward Codrington. In September 1831 he was detached on an independent command on the Tagus, aboard Asia where he went to protect British interests during the Portuguese Civil War. When he returned to England he was appointed one of the Lords of the Admiralty. He left the Admiralty in 1841, and was appointed commander-in-chief of the East Indies and China Station. Parker sailed for Hong Kong and assumed command of the squadron on 10 August 1841. The British proceeded to capture Amoy, Ningpo, Woosung and Shanghai, ending with the seizure of Chinkiang and closing the entrance to the Grand Canal on 21 July 1842, effectively bringing about the end of the 1st China Opium War. Parker was appointed GCB in 1843, received a good-service pension in 1844 and received a baronetcy in 1841. In November 1841 he had been appointed Vice-Admiral and in 1845 was Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean Fleet. In May 1846, because of his knowledge of Portugal and its politics, he was given the additional command of the Channel Squadron while still remaining in charge of the Mediterranean. He was briefly (for a week) First Naval Lord in July 1846 but gave up the role due to ill health. In 1852 he attained the rank of Admiral and returned to England. He served as Commander-in-Chief, Plymouth from 1854 to 1857. He continued to be active, serving as a consultant on a variety of projects. In 1863 he became an Admiral of the Fleet. He died on 13 November 1866 due to complications from bronchitis. He was buried in his parish churchyard near his home at Shenstone Lodge, and a monument to his memory was erected in Lichfield Cathedral.

      Est: £3,000 - £5,000

      Drummond (Samuel, 1765-1844). Captain William Rodgers Capturing the ÔJeune RichardÕ, 1st of October 1807, large scale preparatory study, oil on canvas, unsigned, relined, 93 x 93cm (36 1/2 x 36 1/2ins), period recessed gilt frame. An impressive preparatory study, somewhat smaller than the finshed work that hangs in the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich which measures 157 x 119cm. It records the incredible action off the coast of Barbados on 1 October 1807 when the lightly armed British Mail Packet ÔWindsor CastleÕ, under the command of Acting-Captain William Rodgers and with a crew of only 28, was pursued by the more powerful French privateer ÔJeune RichardÕ carrying a crew of 92 and with superior guns including a centrally mounted 18-pounder gun on a swivel. With the French ship gaining ground and running alongside to board, the crew of the Windsor Castle deployed anti-boarding nets and pikes and were able to repel the attackers. A long battle ensued with the ships rigging entangled preventing either side from withdrawing. Well aimed British gunfire eventually disrupted the French positions and Rodgers was able to lead a five man boarding party which drove the remaining Frenchmen from their guns and forced the crew below decks. Rodgers steered both ships to port and became an instant hero with numerous accounts appearing in newspapers and Journals. In this image Rodgers is shown leading his five men onto the privateer and is preparing to shoot the Boatswain. He stands symbolically atop the swivel-mounted 18-pounder although a dangerous figure in the foreground is raising his arm to shoot at him. Drummond based the head and shoulders of Rodgers on the portrait that he had already painted of him which is also in the National Maritime Museum. The finished picture was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1808 and was engraved in mezzotint by W. Ward in 1809. Samuel Drummond ARA (1765-1844) joined the navy at the age of fourteen and served for seven years at the height of the American War of Independence. A self-taught artist he was really a portraitist and genre painter although he did produce several maritime works including his best known of Nelson carried below deck after being mortally wounded at Trafalgar.
