  • Notes 

    • About 6 years after the death of his father, Lieut Thomas Reynell, in
      Sept 1777 at the battle of Freeman's Farm during the American War of
      Independence, Richard Littleton Reynell joined his father's old
      Regiment, the 62nd, as an Ensign with a commission dated 23 May 1783.
      Given his young age (11 years old), this late-war measure may have
      been done to afford him an income. Posted as an Ensign in one of the
      Regiment's additional companies, Reynell, along with the other
      additional company officers, was soon after placed on half-pay due to
      post-war downsizing. Later in life, he settled in America, dying in
      Baltimore, Maryland. He and his youngest brother Thomas both came to
      inherit the Baronetcy of the Reynell family (missed by their father
      due to his death), which terminated upon Thomas' death in 1848.
