Admiral Sir Benjamin Hallowell Carew GCB, (born Benjamin Hallowell, ca. 1 January 1761, Boston, Mass. - d. September 2, 1834, Beddington Park, Surrey).
Bryan Elson is a resident of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
“Sir Benjamin Hallowell was born in the seaport of Boston, when Massachusetts was still a colony of Great Britain, to a family that had significant land holdings in Nova Scotia and Ontario. Sir Benjamin Hallowell, one of Admiral Horatio Nelson's famous 'Band of Brothers', served a lifetime in the navy of Great Britain through the American and French Revolutions between 1775 and 1815. His drama-filled life was profoundly shaped by the currents of history, with strong connections to Canada and the United States through his Boston-bred, staunchly Loyalist family.
Bryan Elson's thoroughly researched biography illuminates Hallowell's career and his personal life during these history-shaping events. Through Hallowell's eyes, readers will witness key events in British imperial history during this dramatic period when Britain was able to gain ascendancy over its arch-rival France to 'rule the waves.'” - from the dj.
