ANDRE, OF SOUTHAMPTON.
Created 4th March, 1781.—Extinct Ilth Nov. 1804.
Major John Andre, (descended from a French refugee family, settled at Southampton, in the county *( Hants,) adopted the military profession, and was appointed adjutant-general of the British army in
America, under Sir Henry Clinton. There he became highly distinguished, and gave promise of one day taking a leading place among the military heroes of his country, but the hopes which the brightness of his early and brief career held out were destined to prove delusive. The gallant soldier—the idol of bis comrades, the admiration of his superiors—fell a victim to one of those acts for which the excitement of war was the only and feeble excuse. In Sept. 1780, he was intrusted with the management of the negotiation with General Arnold, previously to that officer's joining the royal army; and being taken,within the American lines, in disguise, his case was referred by General Washington to a board of officers, who adjudged him to be a spy, and he suffered death on the 2nd October following. The melancholy event excited general grief on its announcement in England, and the exquisite lines of a poetic friend of the deceased, the gifted Miss Seward, consecrated the memory of the ill-fated soldier in a mournful and beautiful eulogium. Major Andre died unmarried, but in honour of his memory, King George III. conferred the dignity of a Baronet upon his brother,
i. Sir William-lewis Andre, at whose decease without issue, 11th November, 1804, the title became Extinct.

Sir Charles entered the service on the 27th of February, 1778, as an ensign in the 1st foot guards, and obtained a lieutenancy, with the rank of captain, iu that regiment, on the 3rd of February, 1781. He went to America in the same year, joined the army under the command of the Marquis Cornwallis, served the whole of the campaigns, was taken prisoner with the army in October, at the siege of York Town, in Virginia, and sent up the country, where he remained
till May, 1782, at which period all the captains of the irmy were ordered by General Washington to assemble and draw lots, that one might be selected to suffer death, by way of retaliation for the death of an American officr, Captain Hardy, whom our government refused to deliver up, for political reasons, although General Washington demanded it. The lot fell on Sir Charles Asgill, and he was, in consequence, conveyed under a strong e*cort, to the place intended for his execution, in the Jerseys, where he remained in prison enduring peculiar hardships for the space of sis. months, expecting daily that his execution would take place- Sir Charles was unexpectedly released from his confinement by an act of Conpreas passed at the intercession of the Queen of France, who, deeply affected by a most eloquent and pathetic appeal from his mother Ludy Asgill, humanely interfered and obtained his release. He returned to EnglanJ on parole, and shortly after went to Paris to make bis acknowledgments to the Queen of France.
