William Loney RN - Life and Career


This portrait and photograph show William Loney RN, born on 2 July 1817 in Ireland and died 27 July 1898.

He was a surgeon in the British navy between 1839 (when he took up his commission as Assistant Surgeon in Wanderer) and 1877 (when he retired with the rank of Inspector General of Hospitals and Fleets). He was the granduncle of my stepfather.

This website documents his life and times as illustrated by his original documents and photos, extracts from ships' and medical logs, maps, period documents and background material concerning the officers, ships, fleets and campaigns of the mid-Victorian Royal Navy.
