http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Alexeyevich_Kornilov

Vice Admiral Vladimir Alexeyevich Kornilov (Влади́мир Алексе́евич Корни́лов; 1806–1854) was a Russian naval officer who took part in the Crimean War.

Kornilov was born in his family state in Staritsky District, Tver Province in 1806. His father was governor of Irkutsk. Kornilov entered the naval service in 1823, and in 1827 he fought in the Battle of Navarino as a midshipman aboard the fleets flagship Azov .

In 1853, with his flag hoisted aboard the 11-gun steam frigate Vladimir (commanded by Lieutenant-Commander Grigory I. Butakov) met an 19-gun Turkish Vessel, the Pervaz-Bahri, when they were cruising close to Penderakli. Kornilov gave the order of engaging the enemy and the Vladimir joined battle against Pervaz-Bahri. The Ottoman ship had no bow and stern artillery, so every time it employed its side artillery, Butakov manoeuvred to rake its stern. Considering that the battle was taking too long, Kornilov gave the order to speed the sinking of the enemy. Cpt. Butakov ordered to speed up the ship and approaching the enemy to around 100 meters, fired canister rounds from all his side guns. The Turks. The Pervaz-Bahri had suffered heavy casualties in the 3 hour long battle and hauled its flag. The ship was transported to Sevastopol where it was commissioned to the Russian Navy as Kornilov.
