Murray, Sir George

Murray, Sir George, was born in 1759, and first went to sea in 1770. During the American War he served at the attack on Sullivan's Island in Charleston harbour in 1776, and in 1779 was taken prisoner of war. During the French War he was ordered to lead the van at the battle of St. Vincent, and later at the battle of Copenhagen. Upon the renewal of hostilities in 1803 he became captain of the fleet under Lord Nelson, whom he accompanied to the West Indies. He subsequently commanded the naval forces in South America and elsewhere, and, having in 1809 attained the rank of vice-admiral, died in 1819.
