CUST

William

To the memory of William Cust, Esq, a brave and judicious sea officer who after having signalised himself in a series of dangerous and successful enterprises was unfortunately killed by a cannon ball 8th March 1747.

While Commander of a small sloop he was remarkably active in destroying the enemies privateers, and after chasing into Cherbourgh a French ship of superior force, he cut it out from that harbour under a continual fire from the batteries. For this action he was advanced to the command of the Boston Man of War, stationed in New England, but before he could take possession of that ship was engaged at the request of Admiral Knowles in the expedition against Port Louis on board the Elizabeth which began the attack. He behaved with uncommon presence of mind in the heat of battle, where the family and country were at once deprived of a great honour and ornament to them both.

He was in every relation of private life most amiable, in all that concerned his country truly great and completed his course of life and glory in the 28th year of his age. He was second son of Sir Richard Cust, Baronet, by Anne Brownlowe, sister of The Right Honourable Lord Viscount Tyrconnel, who places this as a testimony of his great affection for his nephew and concern for so public a loss.
