Copper engraved portrait of George Anson, 1st Baron Anson PC, FRS, RN (23 April 1697 6 June 1762), engraved by L. Rados after G.B.Bosio.
Anson was a British admiral and a wealthy aristocrat, noted for his circumnavigation of the globe and his role overseeing the Royal Navy during the Seven Years' War. During his time in office Anson instituted a series of reforms to the Royal Navy.

George's father was William Anson of Shugborough in Staffordshire and his mother was Isabella Carrier, who was the sister-in-law of Thomas Parker, 1st Earl of Macclesfield, the Lord Chancellor, a relationship that proved very useful to the future admiral.

George Anson entered the navy in February 1712, and by rapid steps became lieutenant in 1716, commander in 1722, and post-captain in 1724. In this rank, he served twice on the North American station as captain of Scarborough and of Squirrel from 1724 to 1730 and from 1733 to 1735.
In 1737 he gained the command of the 60-gun ship of the line, Centurion. In 1740, on the eve of the War of the Austrian Succession (17401748), he became commander (with the rank of commodore) of the squadron sent to attack Spanish possessions in South America in the War of Jenkin's Ear. He was Member of Parliament (MP) for Hedon in Yorkshire from 1744 to 1747 and became the First Lord of the Admiralty from June of 1751 to November of 1756, and again from June 1757 until his death.
