The victorious Royal Navy frigate HMS Shannon returned to Halifax under the command of Provo William Parry Wallis. In tow, he had the USS Chesapeake from Boston. Wallis’s captain had died during the battle outside Boston Harbour on June 1. Wallis took command and sailed the Shannon back to Halifax with the captured Chesapeake in tow. Chesapeake’s commander, Captain James Lawrence, died of his wounds on the way to Halifax. He was buried with full military honours in St. Paul’s Cemetery (now called the Old Burying Ground). But ten weeks later, his body, and that of his first lieutenant, Augustus Ludlow, who had also died during the battle, were disinterred and returned to the US where they were buried in the Trinity Churchyard in New York City. The remaining crew (320) were marched to the Melville Island Prison on the Northwest Arm. (Also see Sir Provo William Parry Wallis, April 12, 1791).
