On board HMS Spartan, Milazzo [Messina, Sicily], 2 April 1810. 1 page 12 x 7 inches, ink faded but legible, otherwise sound. The ink has faded but this is the first Jahleel Brenton document we have found. Admiral Sir Jahleel Brenton (Newport, Rhode Island, 1770 – 1844) fought throughout the Napoleonic Wars. Following the renewal of hostilities with France, he commanded a succession of frigates. Brenton was obliged to surrender in July 1803 when his frigate ran aground. He was imprisoned at until 1806, during which time his wife joined him. Having eventually been exchanged (freed in return for the release of Massena’s nephew) he was appointed to HMS Spartan in 1807. Brenton's most brilliant action was fought with a squadron of French ships at Naples on 1 May 1810. He was severely wounded during the battle, and Joachim Murat, the then king of Naples, later praised his conduct.

Given on board the Canopus, Palermo Bay, 23 February 1811. 2 pp. 12 x 8 inches, in sound condition, but with one heavy stain clear of the signature. Boyles was the young midshipman who became a close friend and mentor to Horatio Nelson when he joined the Raisonable in 1771. “Boyles was his favourite and he probably assumed the role of protective older brother. Five years Horace’s senior he was a lively Norfolk lad whose father, the collector of customs at Wells, was known to the Nelson-Suckling families ... he was capable too: he became a post-captain in 1790, distinguished himself in Calder’s action with the French in 1805 and reached flag rank a year later.” [John Sugden Nelson: A Dream of Glory, p 50]. Vice-Admiral Charles Boyles (1756-1816) became a rear-admiral in 1809 and from 1810 to 1812 served in the Mediterranean. He became a vice-admiral in 1814.
