Park, CO. Surrey, major-gen. in the East

3. Rear-admiral sir James-Atholl, knt.,
C.B., b. 1755, entered at an early age into
the R.N. ; in Dec. 1806 he was appointed to
assist in the expedition destined against
Curafoa, which surrendered to the British
arms in Jan. I8O7 : he was second in com-
mand on this gallant enterprize; for his
spirited conduct in which he received a gold
medal and the honour of knighthood, d.
July 1829, aet. 74.

4. Andrew, who entered into the R.N.
at the same time with his brother, sir James,
and went to India some time subsequent to
the peace in 1783. At the period when a
war was expected with Spain, he was sent,
by order of government, in the command,
as a lieutenant, of a small vessel, to the
Straits of Sunda, for the purpose of in-
forming thirty rich East India ships of the
circumstance. Unfortunately his ship was
wrecked at the entrance of the Straits,
and with difficulty he and his crew escaped
to the shore: impressed, however, with a
strong sense of the importance of his mis-
sion, he took an open boat, and, in defiance
of the elements and of the Malays, (who
murdered more than half of his crew,) he
cruised in the Straits during three months,
and succeeded in giving the necessary in-
formation to twenty-nine sail out of the
thirty. Approving highly of his diligence
and intrepidity, martiuess Cornwallis, sir
Archibald Campbell, and sir William Mea-

dows, K.B., concurred in recommending
him for promotion. Anxious to reach Eng-
land, Mr. Wood bought a boat of less than
five tons, had her decked, and, with three
lascars on board, embarked for the Cape of
Good Hope, where he safely arrived after a
passage of sixty-three days. Not finding
any ship at the Cape that was proceeding to
England, conceiving the most perilous part
of his voyage to be over, he again embarked
in his small boat with three foreign seamen ;
but, to the deep regret of all who knew him,
he has never since been heard of.
