Isabel-Sophia-Eliza, b. 25th January, 1833. From Major Pringle Taylor first entering the army in 1811, his conduct and character acquired for him the most honourable testimonials from every officer under whom he served : his behaviour in battle was noticed on several occasions with the highest applause, particularly as Brigade-Major to the Cavalry at Ashta, on the 20th February, 1818 (the Action of most importance from its results of any fought during the Deccan War, and which was confined to the Cavalry peculiarly under his control, upon the Brigadier-General falling insensible from a sabre wound); and also as a volunteer in leading the Forlorn Hope on the storm of Copaul, on the 13th May, 1819, when he was shot through the body and lungs, at the moment of complete success, in the capture of that strongly fortified hill. For his services during the Deccan War, he was recommended on public grounds," by General the Marquess of Hastings, Governor General of India, for the favourable consideration of His Royal Highness the Duke of York, Commander-in-Chief of the Army.

Major Pringle Taylor served in the East Indies in the late 22nd Light Dragoons, and on the Staff in the field in that country; in the interior of the Cape of Good Hope colony, in the late Cape corps of Cavalry; in the Mediterranean, in the 95th Regiment; a short time in England in that corps, and also for one year in the 61st Regiment, from which he retired on half pay as major.
