A three-quarter-length portrait to right in a brown coat and grey full-bottomed wig. His right elbow rests on a stone plinth in front of a rocky outcrop. His left hand is on his sword hilt and his hat under his arm. In the right background is a ship wearing the Admiralty flag. Norris fought at the Battle of Malaga in 1704 and as Captain of the Fleet at the taking of Barcelona in 1705 was sent home with the despatches.
