Midshipman's uniform for a "squeaker"

Although my son is just learning to walk, I would like to get a jump start on research, etc that will help me create a uniform for a  young midshipman in the Royal Navy circa 1800-1812. Can anyone suggest books, portraits, drawings, original source documents, or patterns that will help me develop a greater understanding of a midshipman's life in the RN as well as guide me in creating an historically appropriate set of garments?

Thanks!
