commission as major, 1742; lieutenant-colonel, 1744; colonel, 1746. Sent
to America with 50th Regiment, 1756; superseded Shirley and Webb in
command of the army; and then resigned command to Lord Loudon. In 1757
commanded second brigade against Louisbourg. On Loudon's recall, became
commander-in-chief, 1758. Led expedition against Ticonderoga, with Lord

by Montcalm. Returned to England, and in 1772 deputy-governor of
Stirling Castle. =Index=: (Wolfe / Montcalm era) Sent to America with reinforcements, 33;
