Montague Isaacson He died 25th December 1772 and is buried at Alnwick
Mrs Elizabeth Montagu, wife of Edward, mentions in her memoirs that she had secured a berth as midshipman for Montagu Isaacson, Mr Montagu's cousin with Admiral Boscawen.
Lieut William Isaacson
He is known principally for his various naval commands throughout the 18th century and the engagements that he won, including the Siege of Louisburg in 1758 and Battle of Lagos in 1759. He is also remembered as the officer who signed the warrant authorising the execution of Admiral John Byng after Byng's court martial in 1757 after the failure of Byng to engage the enemy at the Battle of Minorca (1756).
In his political role, he served as a Member of Parliament for Truro from 1742 until his death although due to his almost constant naval employment he does not appear to have been particularly active in the role. He also served as one of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty on the Board of Admiralty from 1751 and as a member of the Privy Council from 1758 until his death in 1761.
The War of the Austrian Succession had broken out in 1744 between France and England and had soon spread to North America. The great fortress at Louisbourg commanded both the St. Lawrence Estuary and the North Atlantic sea lanes and fishing grounds and France used it to advantage without delay. French naval units and privateers fell heavily upon New England's merchant ships and fishing vessels. At least 36 vessels were taken as prizes to Louisbourg in 1744. Most of those captured were from Massachusetts and the losses plus the threat of capture literally paralyzed that Colony's maritime trade.
And for the Aussies, Captain Cook also was under his command!
With this experience he joined the Royal Navy in June 1755 as an able seaman at the relatively advanced age of twenty-six, being promoted to master’s mate following two years in the Channel service. In 1758 Cook joined Admiral Boscawen’s Fleet as master of the Pembroke3 in the campaign for the conquest of Canada from the French. He was involved in a major assault that captured the Fortress of Louisbourg, in charting the St Lawrence river prior to the siege of Quebec City, and the subsequent Battle of the Plains of Abraham in 1759. Another man who was to become a noted explorer in the Pacific, Louis de Bougainville, was also involved in these encounters, serving with the French forces.
Hannah was born 1713 at Barmoor Hall, Lowick, Northumberland and she was the daughter of Rev Edward Arthur. He died 5th June 1761.
He had a reputation for being a bit of a controversial preacher, as he was named as the plaintiff in a case regarding defamation - whoredom Documents!
Edward Arthur, who, to his pastoral charge, added the stewardship of the Barmoor, Holburn, and Fenham estates; and also, to his ultimate ruin, farmed at Barmoor. His “pulpit exhibitions were universally esteemed and admired; his voice was sweet and musical ; his manner bold and expres- sive.” About the year 1740 he resigned his charge at Barmoor, having accepted a call to Etal.
Etal (// EE-təl) is a small village in the far north of the county of Northumberland, England which shares a parish with nearby Ford. It lies on a bridging point of the River Till ten miles south west of Berwick-Upon-Tweed, and can boast the substantial ruins of a medieval castle currently owned by English Heritage. It has just one residential street, and has a population of less than fifty.

Subsequently he removed to Swalwell, near Gateshead, where he died in 1760.30

Berwick | Printed by and for W. Phorson | and | B. Law, Ave Maria Lane, London. | mdcclxxxiii. 36 (available as an ebook)
On Thursday morning died, in advanced age, the Rev. Mr. Edward Arthur, dissenting minister at Swalwell; a person who was most zealously attached to the Protestant interest, a sound and orthodox preacher, a real friend and strenuous asserter of the cause of liberty, a truly loyal subject, and remarkably warm and hearty in his wishes for his King and country. —Newcastle Courant, 20 Sept., 1760
He was mentioned in some court proceedings involving the church.
