General note

Author: Hurd, Tho(s)., Capt., R. N. (late hydrographer to the Admiralty) with corrections by Mr. Anthony Lockwood, Mast., R. N.
Captain Thomas Hannaford Hurd (bapt. 30 January 1747 – 29 April 1823) was an officer of the Royal Navy, who rose to the rank of captain, becoming the second Admiralty hydrographer, a Superintendent of Chronometers and a Commissioner for the discovery of longitude. Hurd Peninsula is named after him due to his role in the discovery of Antarctica. Hurd joined the navy on 1 September 1768, serving as an able seaman aboard HMS Cornwall, which was then under the command of Captain Molyneux Shuldham. He served on the Newfoundland and North American stations between 1771 and 1774. Hurd was sent to carry out the first exact survey of Bermuda in 1789, a task which took him nine years. On 18 August 1795 he was promoted to the rank of commander, serving as captain of Bermuda and briefly Spencer, before returning to Bermuda. He received promotion to post captain on 29 April 1802. In 1804 he conducted a survey of the harbour of Brest and its surrounding coast. In May 1808, following the death of Alexander Dalrymple, Hurd was the second person to be appointed hydrographer to the admiralty. In the following 15 years, Hurd organised a regular system of surveys and the improved productivity was marked. He is also credited with making sure that his maps, that had been funded by the military, were made available for civilian use by the merchant navy. The Hurd Peninsula is on the south coast of Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-Names Committee in 1961 for Thomas Hurd, RN. Hurd was chosen as it was under his authority that Antarctica was discovered. When Hurd died on 29 April 1823, he was a superintendent of chronometers and a commissioner for the discovery of longitude. Hurd was survived by his wife and he left plantations in both America and the West Indies. Source: Wikipedia.
LOCKWOOD, ANTHONY, naval officer, hydrographer, surveyor, office holder, and politician; b. c. 1775 in England; he had one son, also named Anthony, who was born in 1804; m. 11 May 1819 Mrs Harriet Lee of Saint John, N.B.; buried 25 Jan. 1855 in Stepney (London), England. [Lockwood became successful and then mentally ill so that] When George Shore, Lockwood’s replacement, examined the surveyor general’s office, he found confusion, mutilated documents, and disarray which would take “two extra employees five years to straighten out.” Furthermore, the discrepancy between Lockwood’s receipts as receiver general and the office’s bank deposit amounted to more than £2,000. Although he was moved from the jail to what was, in effect, house-arrest in September, Lockwood and his family had to suffer the public sale of his real and personal estate as the custodial committee sought to recover the missing public monies. Throughout his confinement Lockwood petitioned for his liberty. But it was not until 10 Nov. 1825 that a further commission of inquiry, appointed by Lieutenant Governor Sir Howard Douglas, declared him “restored to his understanding.” Soon after his release he returned with his wife to England, where he continued to receive a £150 annual pension from the government of’ New Brunswick until his death. Anthony Lockwood’s respite from suffering was only brief. “At times subject to fits of insanity” until 1836, he probably spent some of the last years of his life in the Bethnal Green Lunatic Asylum in London.
