Captain Frederick Marryat (10 July 1792 – 9 August 1848) was a Royal Navy officer, a novelist, and an acquaintance of Charles Dickens. He is noted today as an early pioneer of nautical fiction, particularly for his semi-autobiographical novel Mr. Midshipman Easy (1836). He is remembered also for his children’s novel The Children of the New Forest (1847), and for a widely used system of maritime flag signalling known as Marryat’s Code
