General Charles Gordon Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond was born in Scotland in 1764. In 1787, he was commissioned in the 35th Regiment as a captain. The Regiment traveled to the West Indies to fight the French Revolutionary government in 1794. He became a Colonel in 1795 and was promoted to Lieutenant General in 1805. On December 29, 1806, Lennox inherited the title of Richmond from his uncle, the 3rd Duke. Between 1807 and 1813, the 4th Duke of Richmond served as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland and became familiar with the future Duke of Wellington. In 1815, Lennox and his Regiment witnessed at least half of the Battle of Waterloo. Lennox was appointed Governor-General of Upper Canada in May 1818. He died in Upper Canada in August 1819.
