FREDERICK B. P. SEYMOUR (BARON ALCESTER)
Free Frank signed in London in 1839
Free Frank signed: "Seymour", 4¾x3 affixed to a 5½x5 piece of white paper. A 1½x2¼ biography and a 1¼x1¼ image affixed (three surfaces). Envelope addressed in Seymour's hand: "London October 22/1839/Spencer Smith Esq/Brunswick Terrace/Brighton". Frederick Beauchamp Paget Seymour (1821-1895) joined the Royal Navy in 1834 (not an unusual age in that era). His military engagements included command of the naval brigade in New Zealand during the Maori War (1881-1882) and the Egyptian coastal operations which led to establishment of a British protectorate there (1882). He commanded the Channel Fleet (1874-1877) and later the Mediterranean Fleet (1880-1883). He attained the rank of full Admiral in 1882, and became 2nd Naval Lord (1883-1885). He was made Baron Alcester in 1882, a title which expired when he died childless. Edges cut uneven. Otherwise, fine condition.
