LORING, Joshua, naval officer, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1716 ; died in Highgate, England, in 1781. He was a captain in the royal navy in 1757, commanded in the operations on Lake George and Lake Champlain in 1759, and on Lake Ontario the next year, accompanying General Jeffrey Amherst to Montreal. He was subsequently proscribed and banished, the committee on confiscated estates advertising for sale his " large mansion-house, together with about sixty-five acres of mowing-land," in Roxbury, and his house and garden in Boston, "next to the South writing-school adjoining the common." He went to England, and in a contemporary record of his death is described as "one of the oldest captains of the royal navy, and late commodore of the lakes of North America."
