Boscawen, Edward (17111761)

Boscawen, Edward, a British admiral, known from his fearlessness as “Old Dreadnought”; distinguished himself in engagements at Puerto Bello, Cathagena, Cape Finisterre, and the Bay of Lagos, where, after a “sea hunt” of 24 hours, he wrecked and ruined a fine French fleet, eager to elude his grasp (17111761).
