A view of the S.W. side of Tenian, Anson's voyage Mariana Islands, 1748

Title: A view of the S.W. side of Tenian.

Description: Antique engraving in handcoloring of George Anson's voyage, was made on the ship HMS Centurion, which set sail from England in September 1740.
The purpose of the voyage was to attack Spanish shipping and settlements in the Pacific Ocean during the War of Jenkins' Ear.
The engraving of the S.W. side of Tenian, was taken during the voyage on June 14, 1742.
Tenian (also spelled Tinian) is an island in the Pacific Ocean, part of the Northern Mariana Islands, and was visited by Anson during his voyage.

The voyage lasted for nearly four years, from 1740 to 1744, during which time the Centurion circumnavigated the globe.
The crew of the Centurion numbered around 480 men at the start of the voyage, although the number fluctuated throughout the journey due to deaths from disease, desertion, and other factors.

There were no women on board the Centurion during the voyage, as it was a Royal Navy warship and women were not permitted to serve on such vessels at the time.
