Excerpt from The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, 1902, Vol. 26 John Hazlewood, one of the most noted naval officers of Pennsylvania in the Revolutionary War, was born in England about 1726, and became a mariner, and in early life settled in Philadelphia. In 1753 he was in command of the ship "Susanna and Molly;" in 1762, of the ship "Greyhound;" in 1763, of the brig "Monckton;" in 1771, of the ship "Sally;" and in 1774, of the ship "Rebecca." The latter was one of the largest ships sailing at that time from Philadelphia, and in all of these Captain Hazlewood traded with foreign ports, chiefly those of England. When, at the outbreak of the Revolution, it became necessary to organize naval forces for the defence of the Colonies, recourse was had for naval commanders to the captains in the merchant marine, there being none others at hand whose training in any way fitted them for such service.
