SAUNDERS, Sir Charles, British naval officer, born in Scotland about 1705 ; died in London in December, 1775. He joined the navy, served under Lord Anson, and won notice by his gallant defence of the " Yarmouth," while he was captain of that yes-sel in 1747. In 1759 Pitt gave him the command of the fleet that was intended to co-operate with General Wolfe and the land forces at the capture of Quebec. He rendered the greatest assistance to Wolfe by his bombardment of the town, and displayed much skill and courage during the period when the fleet was in St. Lawrence river. He was appointed lieutenant-general of marines in 1760, in 1765 a lord of the admiralty, and in 1766 first lord of the admiralty.
