Biographical or historical data
The fifth revolutionary convention passed an ordinance at its May 1776 session establishing the Board of Commissioners to Superintend and Direct the Naval Affairs of this Colony. The board, made up of three commissioners, had responsibility for all matters concerning the State Navy, including construction, labor, and supply. The General Assembly passed an act at its May 1779 session abolishing the Navy Board and creating the Board of War, which included a naval commissioner. The office of Commissioner of the Navy continued to exist even after the Board of War was abolished in May 1780, until it too was abolished in November 1781.
