BUNN, Thomas,—was appointed captain of the Essex in the year 1660, by the duke of York; and the following year was promoted to the command of the Lyon, a third rate of fifty eight guns. He, in all probability, died soon afterwards, as it does not appear he was ever appointed to any other ship. ---Biographia Navalis. J. Charnock, 1794.
