Conway Henry Seymour

Conway, Henry Seymour, Field-Marshal, the second son of the first Lord Conway, was born in 1720, and adopted the military profession. He was aide-de-camp to the Duke of Cumberland at Culloden, and as lieutenant-general served with distinction under Prince Ferdinand of Brunswick in 1761. He next entered Parliament, and was Secretary of State from 1765 to 1768. He then returned to the army, of which he became commander-in-chief in 1782, when he proposed in Parliament the abandonment of the American war. Though able, courageous, and cultivated (Horace Walpole was his close friend, and he wrote a play), he lacked the vigour necessary to achieve greatness. He died in 1795.
