The name of Pocock is of considerable
antiquity in the co. of Berks. John Pocock
appears, by an ancient inscription, to have
been buried at Hampsted Norris, in that
county, as early as 1493. Edward Pocock,
rector of Childrey, co. Berks, the learned
orientalist, was the son of the rev, Edward
Pocock, vicar of Chieveley, in the same coun-
ty, who is supposed, on strong probabilities,
to have been a brother of the rev. Lawrence
Pocock, the baronet's immediate ancestor.

and grandson of another Richard Pocock,

Greenwich Hospital, rector of Danbury, co.
Essex, and of Long Ditton ; b. 1(J09, d. 1745,

Sir George Pocock, K.B., eldest son,
was 6. 21 Feb. 1706, O.S., and entered the
naval service at the age of eleven years,
under the auspices of his uncle, viscount
Torrington, and was present on board the
admiral's ship, the Barfleiir, in the memor-
able victory gained by that distinguished
commander in the year 17I8, off the coast
of Sicily, when the whole of the Spanish
fleet was either taken or destroyed. He was
made captain, 1 Aug. 1738, and in 1748
commanded on the Leeward Island station,
and blocked up the French fleet in Mar-



tinico ; in 1754 he went to the East Indies
as second in command under admiral Wat-
son ; was soon after promoted to be rear-
admiral of the blue, and on the death of
admiral Watson in 1757, succeeded him in
the chief command of the English fleet in
those parts. With an inferior force he
gained three signal victories over the French
fleet, commanded by the count D'Ache,
and before the close of 1758, had established
the sovereignty of the English in those
seas. For these services he received the
thanks of the East India Company, his
statue was erected in the India House, and
his sovereign bestowed on him the order of
the Bath, with which he was invested 6
May 1761. In the succeeding year he was
appointed to command the naval part of the
expedition against the Havannah, which,
together with nine sail of the line, sur-
rendered to the English forces on the 12th
of August. Sir George for some time held
the office of master of the Trinity House,
and was twice returned M.P. for Plymouth.
He m., 28 Nov. 1763, Sophia-Pitt, youngest
