‘MAJOR-GENERAL SIR HENRY WHEATLEY, BART., C.B., G.C.H.
‘SIR HENRY WHEATLEY, of Hampton Court-green, Middlesex, for several years Privy Purse to King William IV. and Queen Victoria, died on the 21st instant [March 1852], at St. James’s Palace, in the 74th year of his age. He was the third son of the late William Wheatley, Esq., of Lesney House, Kent (High Sheriff of that county in 1769), by Margaret his wife, daughter of John Randall, Esq., of Charlton. At the age of eighteen he entered the 1st Foot of Guards, and, in the campaign in Holland, served under the Duke of York, receiving a wound in the neck 19th September, 1798. In 1807 he was Aide-de-Camp to Sir Harry Burrard; during the siege of Copenhagen, in 1808, participated in the victory of Vimiera; in 1810 accompanied the Guards to Cadiz, and in 1811 shared in the glory of Barossa. After the accession of William IV., Sir Henry was given the rank of Major General in Hanover, made Keeper of the Privy Purse, and Receiver-General of the Duchy of Cornwall, and honoured with the insignia of Grand Cross of the Guelphic Order. His official appointments he continued to hold under the present Soverign [Queen Victoria], but in 1847 he resigned that of Privy Purse, and was then created a Baronet. Sir Henry married, February 13, 1808, Louisa, daughter of George Edward Hawkins, Esq., and had two sons, who both died young, and five daughters, three of whom survive.’ (The Illustrated London News, London, Saturday, 27 March 1852, p. 255c)
