November, 1837, baptized at Wexford. Jane-Westby, buried at Wexford, 26th Fe

Mary-Westby. This gentleman, formerly a major in the army, served in the 95th or rifle corps, (now rifle brigade,) from 1805 to 1825, and within that period was engaged in the following expeditions :-to Germany in 1805; at the taking of Copenhagen and capture of the Danish fleet in 1807; to Corunna in 1808 with Sir David Baird's army, and in that disastrous retreat; and to Lisbon in 1809 with the light division under Major General Crawford. He arrived at Talavera de la Reyna, the day after that sanguinary battle, having made a forced march of fifty-six miles in twenty-four hours, with the expectation of being up in time to participate in the engagement. In 1810, he had to return to England from severe illness ; but rejoining the army in 1812, fought at Vitoria, and was one of the volunteers from the light division at the storming and capture of St. Sebastian, 31st August, 1813, in which attack he received so severe a wound, that it exfoliated bone for four years, and for which he receives a pension for life. Captain Perceval accompanied the army of occupation to France in 1816 and 1817, and was captain of the guard of honour on the landing of Queen Dowager Adelaide at Dover, in 1818. He proceeded to the North American Colony of Nova Scotia in 1825, and having obtained an unattached majority by purchase in the October of that year, was placed on half-pay, and retired from the service in September, 1833, by the sale of a majority in the 8th hussars.
