Lord Frederick FitzClarence

Lt.-Gen. Lord Frederick FitzClarence, GCH (9 December 1799 – 30 October 1854) was an illegitimate son of King William IV and his mistress, Dorothea Jordan
Frederick FitzClarence gained the rank of Colonel in the service of the 36th (Herefordshire) Regiment of Foot. On 24 May 1831 he was granted the rank of a marquess' younger son. He was invested as a Knight Grand Cross, Hanoverian Order (G.C.H.).
On 19 May 1821, he married Lady Augusta Boyle (d. 28 July 1876), the eldest daughter of the 4th Earl of Glasgow. They had two children:

Augusta FitzClarence (December 1824 – 18 October 1865)

William FitzClarence (b. & d. 1827)

Military career

While a lieutenant in the Coldstream Guards, FitzClarence commanded a small detachment of Guards to act in support of the police with the arrest of the Cato Street conspirators in 1820. The arrest was not straightforward, and a scuffle ensued. The Naval and Military Gazette (May 1845) identified Sgt James Graham as the man who saved FitzClarence's life.
