General Notes: Husband - Charles Wood


of Carleton Lodge, Pontefract, was a Lt. Col. in the 10th Hussars. served in the Peninsular campaign, and at Waterloo. He was, also, present at the battle of Leipsic Arcis - Sur - Aube. He was severly wounded at Basuco during the Peninsular War and again at Waterloo. In a letter about the battle of Waterloo he wrote "I got hit just as the Duke moved to the attack and bled like a pig. I took up my stirrups in the hunting seat and made the best of my way back to Waterloo. With the assistance of a dragoon, I afterwards got into Brussels, and found a lodging in the Rue Royale. Arnold will come home with me. He was shot through the lungs. They tell me he must not eat meat for six months. He says "Wait till I get to Northampton with five hunters next November…" Quentin is going to Paris tomorrow in a carriage … Bob Manners was struck in the shoulder by a lance, and did not find it out until the next day. … You should have seen us the night before the fight. Every one wet through. We had a shower that came down like a wall. Our horses could not face it and all went about. It made the ground up to the horses' fetlocks. We got into a small cottage close to our bivouac, about a mile in rear of our positions, most of us naked and getting out things dry at the fire. I managed to get "Paddy" a shop for the night. Old Quentin burnt his boots, and could not get them on … We had to feed on what we found in the hut, beginning with the old hens for supper, and young chickens for breakfast. I see the English papers say "The Light Dragoons could make no impression on the French Cuirassiers." Now our regiment actually rode over them. Give me the boys that will go at a swinging gallop for the last seventy yards, applying both spurs when you come within the last six yards. Then if you don't go right over them I am much mistaken. …. I have found the ball which went through my thigh into the pad of my saddle, very high up. I think it hit the bone which drove it upwards…".

According to "Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry Chronicle"
1910 Page 213.
Lieutenant Charles Wood of the 52nd.
Aide-de-Camp to General Robert Craufurd.

Charles Wood joined the 52nd in 1809 and was promoted Lieutenant 7th March 1810. He served with the Regiment in the Peninsula and was present at Busaco (wounded), Fuentes d'Onor, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajoz and Salamanca, as well as in many minor engagements. At the action on the Coa, near Almeida, he commanded one half of Captain Robert Campbell's Company, the other half of which under Lieutenant Dawson was posted in a tower and placed in a perilous position, from which it only extricated itself under cover of darkness after the action was over. Young Wood's soldierly qualities attracted the attention of the leader of the Light Division from the first, and it is noteworthy that, out of the great number of highly-trained subalterns under his command, Craufurd selected as his Aides-de-Camp John Shaw of the 43rd and Charles Wood of the 52nd. Wood was with his General at the battle of Fuentes d'Onor; and remained as his A.D.C. up to the time of Craufurd's death, being one of the chief mourners at his burial in the breach of Ciudad Rodrigo. From that time until the spring of 1813 he was D.A.A.G. at Wellington's Headquarters, after which he transferred to the cavalry and joined the Staff of Lord Londonderry as A.D.C. His subsequent services were somewhat remarkable, as shown by the following extract from a letter which, many years later, he wrote to an old brother officer of the 52nd:--

"I accompanied the Allied Army from Berlin to the capture of Paris, and am now the only English officer left who was at both the battles of Leipzic and Waterloo. I was badly wounded at the latter when Captain of the 10th Hussars; and, most curious, was the first to discover the French retiring from Leipzic, as well as the first to tell the Duke on the morning of the 17th June 1815 that the Prussians had retired. I have letters from Lords Londonderry, Westmoreland and Raglan, stating such-- showing that my time with the Old Regiment at the outposts during 1810-1811 had not been thrown away:"

At the time of his death he was a Colonel and he was in possession of the Peninsular Medal with five clasps, the Waterloo Medal and the Prussian Order of Merit, later known as the Blue Max. He is one of very few foreigners to ever receive this medal. The back story of this award is as follows: In 1813 Captain Wood accompanied Lord Stewart to Germany as A.D. C. and afterwards took part with the Prussians in the campaign against the French. He was present at the battles of Gross-Beeren, Donnewitz, Wittemberg, and Leipsic, when the French, under Napoleon were totally defeated by the Allies. On this occasion, for his report on the evening of the 18th October that the French were retiring, and for saving a Prussian General and his staff from being captured, he was decorated by the King of Prussia with the military order of merit.

His obituary in the Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer for 15 December, 1877, page 4, reports his military record, citing Mr. H. S. Smith's (Leeds) Military List as follows: "Ensign, 16th March, 1809, 52nd Regiment; ; lieutenant, 7th March, 1810, 52nd Regiment; captain, 17th September, 1812, 68th Regiment; appointed to the 10th Hussars 12th November 1814; brevet-major, 16th March, 1815; exchanged to the 4th Light Dragoons, 1st February, 1821; exchanged to h.p. of 22d Light Dragoons, 5th April 1821; major, 16th July 1830, unattached; brevet-lieu-colonel, 10th January 1837; exchanged to 52nd Regiment, 12th December 1839; retired same day."

According to a wiki on the 22nd Light Dragoons ( https://wiki.fibis.org/w/22nd_Light_Dragoons ) it was based in India and was disbanded in 1819 and replaced by the 13th Hussars. (Charles was in the 10th Hussars at the Battle of Waterloo). According to a wiki on the 13th Hussars ( https://wiki.fibis.org/w/13th_Hussars ) it was a cavalry unit based in India in the 1820's and 1830's and a number of its members returned to England to retire in 1839.

From this research I am convinced that Charles served in India in the 1820s and 1830s.

The painting of him attached shows him in the uniform of the 52nd Regiment. The two bullion epaulettes dates the portrait to 1811-12 while he was serving as ADC to Major General Craufurd or as DAAG on Wellington's staff. He would have been 20 or 21. I have, also, attached a snuff box lid portrait that Wood commissioned in Germany in 1813.


General Notes: Wife - Susanna Mary Watkins


Granddaughter of Richard Vaughan, of Golden Grove, owner of the Vaughan family estates in excess of 50,000 acres, all lost to the Baron Cawdor, upon the death of her uncle in 1804. Her death date was reported in The London Evening Standard for Wednesday September 11, 1878, page 1.

She brought to the Wood family, not only a very old Welsh heritage, in the Vaughan family, going back to the Welsh King Bleddyn ap Cynfyn , but, also, via Walter Vaughan's wife, ancestry of the Howard family, including Thomas Howard , Edward I and prior kings of England going back to William the Conqueror, and French kings, including Saint Louis IX .

General Notes: Child - Price Builth Manners Wood


8th Hussars, of Worcester. According to The Bell's New Weekly Messenger of September 24, 1843, he became an Ensign "by purchase" on Sepember 22, 1843. According to Hart's Army List for 1851, page 259, in that year he was in South Africa in the Cape Mounted Rifflemen. He reached the rank of Lieutenant on 24 September 1845 and the rank of Captain on 22 February 1850. His estate administration listed him as of Wyke House, Isleworth, Middlesex. According to the UK Regimental Registers of Service 1756-1900, he obtained the rank of Lieutenant "by purchase" and at that time, 1845, he was transfered to th 8th (The King's Royal Irish) Light Dragoons regiment. This was an English based regiment. According to this source he started as Ensign in the 73rd Foot Soldiers.

It is likely that his transfer to the Cape Mounted Riflemen came with his promotion to Captain in 1850. One officer in the Cape Mounted Riflemen, (which, at the time consisted of about 900 officers and men) describe it as follows:

"The anomalous position of the Cape Mounted Riflemen as a cavalry regiment, to all intents and purposes, though it was only endowed with infantry rank and pay, marked it out as essentially different from any other corps in Her Majesty's service, whilst its mixed Coloured and European elements, eminently fitting for it for performing with advantage the skirmishing tactics as useful in savage warfare, carried it still further out of the usual category." Lucas, "Sport and War", 1975, p. v.

The troops wore practical green uniforms and were used mostly for scouting and skirmishing. Price's transfer to this unit coincided with the 8th Frontier War. On December 24, 1850 a detachment of Cape Mounted Rifflemen and other units was ambushed by the Xhosa starting this war, which continued until 1853. According to his obituary, Price retired at the end of 1851, which would coincide with his marriage. As his child was born in England it would appear he returned to England at the end of 1851 or the beginning of 1852. I have no further information of what engagements he might have particpated in during this brutal war. For more on the war, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth_Xhosa_War

He was a Knighted in 1603. Sir Henry built Llangoed Manor in about 1632. He was elected a member of Parliament for Brecon in 1601,1604, 1621 and 1624. He was High Sherrif of Breconshire in 1613 and 1621.

His biography in "The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1558-1603", ed. P.W. Hasler, 1981, is as follows:

Biography

Williams inherited the Breconshire estates of his father the judge, while a younger brother came into the English possessions. He had not long come of age when he was returned to his first Parliament, no doubt because his father was recorder of Brecon. He died in 1636. He is sometimes confused with his son and namesake who succeeded to the county representation in 1628 and became a baronet in 1644.

Biography

This Member has often been confused with his father and namesake, Sir Henry Williams, but the Breconshire indenture of 1628 clearly specifies that it was 'Henry Williams, esq.' who was elected. Furthermore, at that time Sir Henry was acting as sheriff and returning officer, dispelling any ambiguity on this point.14 The 1628 Member, then, was a scion of one of the leading political dynasties in the modest world of Breconshire gentry politics. He cannot, however, have been the individual who matriculated at St. John's College, Oxford aged 16 in 1605, as this would have made his father only nine years old at the time of his birth.15 The family had a strong legal tradition: Henry's grandfather (Sir) David† became a leading Welsh judge, his father attended the Middle Temple, and his uncle Robert qualified as a barrister.16 Not surprisingly, in May 1621 Henry was admitted to the Middle Temple, his fine being remitted at the request of (Sir) Walter Pye I, an intimate of his father and chief justice of the Brecon circuit.17 When Pye's son, Walter II* was in turn admitted, Williams stood as one of his sureties.18 Williams' manucaptors in 1621 included William Morgan* of Y Dderw, a Breconshire man and another ally of Sir Henry Williams and (Sir) Walter Pye I.19

At his election in 1628, Henry Williams was a rather green proxy for his father, as he was not yet even a magistrate; nor is there is any record that he ever spoke or was named to any committees. He was certainly not the 'Mr. Williams, one skilful in gold and silver mines' who gave evidence before the committee of grievances on 4 June 1628.20 He was, however, one of those appointed to provide for the reader's feast at the Middle Temple on 6 Feb. 1629, when Parliament was still in session.21

Williams began to assume the mantle of a local governor in the early 1630s, following his marriage to Anne, daughter of Sir Walter Pye I, who was hugely influential in the politics of early Stuart Breconshire. This marriage brought a substantial portion to the Williams' coffers, and also allied the Member with a powerful family on the Welsh border.22 Williams assumed the leadership of the Gwernyfed house after his father's death in 1636, immediately taking up the chairmanship of the bench, which his father had held for nearly 20 years, and replacing his father as a deputy lieutenant. He did not distinguish himself in the period before the Civil War, although he was clearly an important member of the Breconshire political community. Named a commissioner of array in 1642, he became a committed royalist, acquiring a baronetcy in May 1644 for his efforts on behalf of Charles I. The king stayed at Gwernyfed on 6 Aug. 1645, seven weeks after the battle of Naseby, underlining Williams' status as a leading royalist in the county. In 1646 a hostile commentator described Williams as the 'capital commissioner of array' and a 'man of great power' in Breconshire, who had acted 'with a high hand to the great terror and consternation of all the well affected inhabitants thereabouts'. He further complained that, despite the king's defeat, Williams continued in 'his wonted greatness and tyranny', protected by 'some rotten Members of the House of Commons', a reference, almost certainly, to the politically suspect Member for Breconshire, William Morgan*. Williams' estate had yet to be sequestered, and consequently Williams continued to prosper in the comparative remoteness of Gwernyfed, 'grinding the face of the poor in pieces, especially such as hate [his] ... ungodly proceedings'.23 In the event, Williams never suffered sequestration, possibly because of Morgan's protection, but perhaps also because his estate was too encumbered to bear a fine, although he was assessed at £1,500.24

Williams lived quietly for the remainder of his life in the seclusion of Gwernyfed. He was dead by May 1656, when his second son entered the Middle Temple.25 His eldest son, also Henry, the second baronet, represented Brecon in the Convention and the county in the Cavalier Parliament.

William Whittington married America Eller, and they had three children , Thomas, Gaither and Dora. Apparently, William R. Whittington and America Eller Whittington divorced, as he is found in the 1880 US Census , with a much younger wife. She supposedly married Nathan Weaver, but the only Nathan Weaver in North Carolina in 1880 is married to someone else. There is an America Whittington found in Allegheny Co., North Carolina, with a daughter Dora age 8. Her son Thomas is living with his grandparents Allen and Mary Whittington. There is one Gather Etter in North Carolina, who is listed as a stepson living with a W.F. and Louesa Laws (might name be Faws?]

BiographyWilliams was the great-grandson of David Williams, a distinguished lawyer who was Member for Brecon in four Elizabethan Parliaments. His father, who sat for the county in 1628, was named to the commission of array and created a baronet during the Civil War; information was laid against him as a Royalist, but he never compounded, perhaps because his estates were too encumbered to bear a fine. Consequently Williams was not inhibited from standing at the general election of 1660, though he modestly contented himself with the borough seat, which his father-in-law had occupied in the previous Parliament. He was not an active Member of the Convention, in which he was named to six committees, the most important being to consider the defects of the Poll Act. His vigorous repression of a 'seditious preaching' at Llanddetty on 22 July provoked a riot among the followers of the popular Baptist republican, Jenkin Jones. He stood for the county at the next general election against the courtier Sir Herbert Price , who had the support of the lord president of Wales, the Earl of Carbery. Williams laid down his commission in disgust at the use made of the militia against him in the election. Nevertheless he was returned to the Cavalier Parliament, listed as a moderate by Lord Wharton, and named to the committees for the corporations and uniformity bills. But on 25 July 1661 Job Charlton reported from the elections committee that there had been several miscarriages in the Breconshire election, and the House agreed to declare it void. Whether Williams stood again is not known; he was clearly in financial difficulties, for the King wrote to the Windsor chapter asking them to renew his lease of some tithes on easy terms in consideration of his father's loyalty and sufferings. His whole estate was valued at £700 p.a., of which his wife's jointure accounted for more than half. He died in February 1666 'very much indebted'; a bill to make provision for his widow and daughters was introduced into the Lower House in November, but never passed. His brother, the third and last baronet, never entered Parliament, but his daughter brought Gwernyfed to her husband, Sir Edward Williams, who represented the county as a Tory in six Parliaments. The younger son of Sir Thomas Williams http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1660-1690/member/williams-sir-thomas-1621-1712 he was apparently of different stock from his wife's family.
