DE ROTTENBURG, baron, British soldier, born about 1756; died in England in 1832. After serving in the British army in different parts of the world and attaining the rank of brigadier general in May 1810, he was transferred to the staff in Canada. He took command of the garrison of Quebec, and the same year was promoted to major general. At the beginning of the American war in 1812 he was assigned to the Montreal district, took command of the force in Upper Canada in 1813, and was appointed also administrator of that province. In 1814'5 he commanded the left division of the army in Canada, and in September of the latter year returned to England.
His son, who became Baron De Rottenburg at his father's death, was born about 1807. He entered the British army as a cornet in 1825, and in 1837 served in Canada during the rebellion, and received the brevet rank of major. Subsequently he served in the 46th foot, and was nominated as assistant adjutant general in Canada. In July 1855, he was appointed adjutant general of the militia of Upper Canada, which rank he retained until June 1858, when he was appointed to the lieutenant colonelcy of the 100th regiment (Canadian), recently organized and embodied in the British army.
