S.TILBURY.  The lock engraved VAUGHAN 1745 (probably JOHN VAUGHAN of London). Brass trigger guard, two huge iron side nails. Overall length 41 inches. The lock-plate struck with a military broad arrow and small crown as well as a very large engraved crown and G.R. and engraved with the name "VAUGHAN 1745". The heavy brass barrel struck at the breech with 3 proof marks. Muzzle diameter approx 2 inches. HMS Tilbury  was a 58-gun ship of the line of the British Royal Navy ordered from  Portsmouth Dockyard on 17 December 1742 to be built to the dimensions laid down in the 1741 proposals.
