Overview
-

Royal Navy Officers of the Seven Years War provides detailed reference information on over 2,000 commissioned officers of the Royal Navy: all of those whose career as a commissioned officer included the Seven Years War (1756-1763). In addition, those officers commissioned during and after 1748 and who died before 1756 are included.

Sourced primarily from some 15,000 original source documents held in the National Archives, the individual entries include the officers pre-commission postings and commissions to ships as well as other naval and civil appointments. Genealogical information such as dates of birth, death, and marriage, and the names and dates of the officer's immediate family are also included for most of the entries.

As the first published reference work since 1849 to include this level of detail for all the Royal Navy officers of the period Royal Navy Officers of the Seven Years provides unparalleled access to information previously unpublished.
