ADMIRAL LORD COLLINGWOOD
Collingwood was a devoted husband and father to two daughters, Sarah and Mary Patricia. In this rare family book the Admiral is shown in full military dress alongside his wife Sarah Blackett. Theirs was a very happy marriage despite long periods of absence when Collingwood was on naval duties. Lady Collingwood died at Tynemouth in 1819, nine years after her husband.
