GEORGE NORTON, Esq.
[Commander.]

Was made a lieutenant in Nov. 1790, from which period we find no mention of him until Feb. 18th, 1807 ; when the Inveterate gun-brig, under his command, was wrecked near St. Valery-en-Caux, and four of her crew perished. During the remainder of the war, he was a prisoner in France. His commission as commander bears date June 15th, 1814.
