General Sir Henry Clinton (American War of Independence) (1732–1795)
Lieutenant General Sir Henry Clinton (Napoleonic Wars) K.B. (1771–1829)
His father, Admiral George Clinton, was the younger brother of the Earl of Lincoln and served as the Governor of New York from 1741 to 1751.
Following the Seven Years War, Clinton received the patronage of two Dukes; he was appointed groom of the bedchamber to the Duke of Gloucester, the Kings brother, and attended the Duke of Newcastle, who ensured Clintons election to Parliament.
Clinton devoted the last twelve years of his life to compiling his complete memoirs of the American Rebellion in attempt to vindicate himself at the expense of the British military and government.
