Born in Ireland, Edward Brice Dobbs (1729--1803) was the son of Royal Governor Arthur Dobbs and a full-time military man. He accompanied his father to North Carolina in 1754. During the Seven Years War, he served as a captain in the North Carolina militia and commanded two companies in Edward Braddock's maneuvers in Virginia. As a major, he later commanded three companies in New York. In 1757, the younger Dobbs became a Royal Councillor (1757-1759), and his father appointed him naval officer of North Carolina. Even with these positions, Dobbs left North Carolina and never returned. He assumed a military command in Gibraltar.
