Edward Hawke, Naval Officer
1705 - 1781 Edward Hawke, Naval Officer > Website Edward Hawke, 1st Baron Hawke, KB, was a naval officer of the Royal Navy. He is best remembered for his service during the Seven Years' War, particularly his victory over a French fleet at the Battle of Quiberon Bay in 1759, preventing a French invasion of Britain. A number of Royal Navy warships were named after him, in commemoration of this. He had also won an earlier victory, the Battle of Cape Finisterre in 1747 which made his name. Hawke acquired a reputation as a "fighting officer" which allowed his career to prosper, despite him possessing a number of political enemies. He developed the concept of a Western Squadron, keeping an almost continuous blockade of the French coast throughout the war. Hawke also served as First Lord of the Admiralty for five years between 1766 and 1771. In this post, he oversaw the mobilisation of the British navy during the 1770 Falklands Crisis.

1762 - Spanish campaign in Portugal - Project Seven Years War

www.kronoskaf.com [cached]

Sir Edward Hawke, with Rear-admiral the Duke of York, cruised off the coasts of Spain and Portugal; and later, the same squadron, under command of Sir Charles Hardy and the Duke of York, left port a second time on the same errand.
The result of the combination between him and Hawke was an entire success. On July 14, after parting with the transports, Hawke made for Cape Clear.
