HENRY WILLIAM (1ST MARQUESS OF ANGLESEY) PAGET - CLIPPED SIGNATURE 05/09/1837 - HFSID 81163

 
HENRY WILLIAM PAGET, FIRST MARQUESS OF ANGLESEY
Clipped Signature from 1837, affixed to a sheet which also bears a short printed biography
Signature: "9th May 1837/Anglesey - Lt. Col", 4x1¼ irregularly cut, affixed to 5x3 page. Affixed below signature slip is a concise printed biography. Henry William Paget, First Marques of Anglesey (1768-1854) divided the quarter century from 1790 to 1815 between serving in Parliament and in the British Army. He proved an able cavalry commander in the Peninsular Campaign, but had to withdraw from that duty after running off with the then wife of Henry Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington's younger brother. His greatest fame came at Waterloo, however, where, known then as the Earl of Uxbridge, he led an important charge of heavy cavalry at the French line, losing a leg in the process. He served twice as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, withdrawn on the first occasion for advocating Catholic emancipation. He concluded his career as Master-General of the Ordnance (1846-1852), rising to the rank of Field Marshal. This signature must date between 1793-1801, when he held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Lightly toned and creased. Backing paper wrinkled due to adhesive. 3 surfaces. Otherwise fine condition.
