Sir Richard F. Burton

Original Naval Appointment
Signed by King William
5 June 1827


Official Royal Navy document dated June 5th 1827, signed in the original hand of William IV, whom a short time later would become King of the United Kingdom.

Folio, signed and inscribed document on laid, watermarked paper. Printed to one side, completed in manuscript by William IV of the United Kingdom when he was Lord High Admiral. The official warrant, by the Royal Navy, commissioning Charles Sharp to serve on His Majesty's ship 'Herald.' Single leaf measuring approximately 32cm x 20cm. Small tears to lower margin, unobtrusive to the text, otherwise in very good and original condition. Scarce signed royal personalia item.

William IV (William Henry; 1765-1837), was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. William, the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, was the last king and penultimate monarch of the House of Hanover. He was created Duke of Clarence in 1789 and sat in the House of Lords, where he opposed the emancipation of slaves.

He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the "Sailor King". He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. When the Duke of York died in 1827, William, then more than 60 years old, became heir presumptive. Later that year, the incoming Prime Minister, George Canning, appointed William to the office of Lord High Admiral. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old. His reign saw several reforms: the poor law was updated, child labour restricted, slavery abolished in nearly all the British Empire, and the Reform Act 1832 refashioned the British electoral system.

Laid paper, as seen here, is a type of paper having a ribbed texture imparted by the manufacturing process used from the 12th to 18th century. Its use was largely diminished when wove paper was introduced. The traditional laid pattern consists of a series of wide-spaced lines (chain lines) running in the machine direction, or, in hand-made paper, parallel to the shorter sides of the sheet, and narrower lines (laid lines) which are at 90 degrees to the chain lines.
