CAREW, Sir Benjamin Hallowell, British naval officer, born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1760; died in Beddington Park, England, 2 September, 1834. He was the son of Benjamin Hallowell, customs commissioner at Boston. Entering the navy at an early age, he became a lieutenant in August, 1781, captain in 1793, rear-admiral in 1811, vice-admiral in 1819, K. C. born in 1819, and K. G. C. in 1831. He was with Rodney in the engagement with DeGrasse ; commanded a ship of the line under Hotham in the action off the Hieres islands; was a volunteer on board the " Victory," in the battle of Cape St. Vincent ; and, in command of the "Swiftsure," contributed essentially to the great victory of the Nile. After the battle, Halloweli had a coffin made from part of the main-mast of "L'Orient," and sent it to Nelson, that when his military career was done, he might be buried in one of his trophies. Southey says the offering was received in the spirit in which it was sent, and Nelson had it set up in his cabin. Hallowell was with Hood at the reduction of St. Lucia and Tobago, and with Nelson in the West Indies. He succeeded to the estates of the Carews in 1828. See Sabine's "Loyalists of the Revolution" (Boston, 1864).
