Carnegie, a younger son of the 6th Earl of Northesk, entered the Navy in 1771 and became a captain in 1782. From 1788, after the death of his elder brothers, he was styled Lord Rosehill and succeeded to the earldom in 1792. As captain of the 'Monmouth' during the Nore mutiny of 1797 he was sent by their committee of delegates as an emissary to the king but, their requests being denied by message, did not return in person to his ship as they had demanded.
