Footnote

Rear Admiral Sir Philip Broke, of Broke Hall, Ipswich, was the commander of HMS Shannon in the War of 1812, between United States and Britain. His ship is particularly known for the boarding and capture of the US Frigate Chesapeake off Boston, on 1 June 1813. Over 80 were killed in the action and the loosing crew were taken to Halifax, Nova Scotia, where the sailors were imprisoned; the ship was repaired and taken into service by the Royal Navy and later sold at Portsmouth, England in 1819 to be broken up.
