Sir William Howe Delancey

Sir William Howe Delancey

Delancy’s son, Sir William Howe DeLancey (1781-1815), was born in New York in 1781 and died from wounds at the Battle of Waterloo in June of 1815. During his father’s time at Nassau and Tobago he attended Harrow School in London. After Sir William’s death the Duke of Wellington wrote that; “DeLancey was with me, and speaking to me when he was struck [by a cannon ball].” He continued by writing that De Lancey “…was an excellent officer, and would have risen to great distinction had he lived”. Sir William’s wife, Lady Magdalene DeLancey (1793-1822), later published the book A Week at Waterloo to much acclaim by both Charles Dickens and Sir Walter Scott.
