He entered the service in 1799 as midshipman, and became lieutenant in 1807, master-commandant in 1813, and captain in 1816. He was severely wounded in the action between the "Constellation" and the French frigate "La Vengeance," 1 February 1800, and again in the encounter between the "Enterprise" and a French lugger.
