Profile :
Captain Collins was an officer in the Royal Navy and during his service he took part in an expedition with Sir John Narborough to the Straits of Magellan and along the Chilean coast. He was master of the frigate Charles from 1676 to 1679 and saw service in the wars with Algiers, later being promoted to Commander. Although little more is known about him he must have been an outstanding personality for even before his great survey he was appointed 'Hydrographer to the King' and made a Younger Brother of Trinity House.
