The 1805 Club was founded in 1990 to care for the memorials of the Georgian sailing navy. They are a vital yet often neglected part of Britain's naval heritage. No other organisation is dedicated to their preservation. We:


  1. Conserve monuments and memorials relating to seafaring people of the Georgian era and in particular Admiral Lord Nelson.

    For more information on Admiral Lord Nelson please visit The 1805 Club's site www.admiralnelson.org.

  2. Promote and publish research into the Royal Navy of the Georgian period, and especially Admiral Lord Nelson.

  3. Organise cultural and historical events for the enjoyment and edification of our membership and the public in general.

 

The 1805 Club is a registered charity No. 1071871

Nelson - ON THIS DAY - September

17 September 1805: Vice Admiral Horatio Nelson writes off the Eddystone to Emma Hamilton: "I entreat my dear Emma, that you will cheer up; and we will look forward to many happy years, and be surrounded by our children's children. God Almighty can, when he pleases remove the impediment [his marriage to Lady Nelson".

18 September 1794: Captain Horatio Nelson takes the island of Capraja. To the Governor, enclosing capitulation terms: "Had your answer been a refusal to treat, our attacks by Land and Sea would have commenced, and the lives and property of innocent inhabitants would have been sacrificed by tour fruitless attempt against the superior forces attacking you".
