Hello, I have come across this newspaper article from England dated 1853 and hope it is of use to someone. On the 11th of May last, deeply lamented by his family and friends, Lieutenant George Adolphus Pidcock, R.N., aged 27, youngest son of John Pidcock, Esq., M.D., Watford, Herts. He was killed in the capture of a pirate fleet by H.M.S. Rattler, in the China Seas, near Amoy, while Acting Second Lieutenant of that ship.
Not related, this article just happened to be on the same page as another family I was researching. Kim
