Major William Greene1

M, b. 21 August 1781, d. 4 February 1871

Parents:

Father: Dr. Henry Greene MD2 b. 1755, d. 25 Feb 1814
Mother: Mary Anne O'Dwyer2 b. c 1755, d. 17 Nov 1825
Last Edited: 31 May 2020
  • Birth*: Major William Greene was born on 27 July 1781.3
  • Baptism*: He was baptized on 21 August 1781 at Parish/Church/Congregation - ST. MARY, Dublin, Ireland.
  • Milit-Beg: He began military service on 17 May 1800 as a Lieutenant in the 82nd Foot Regiment
    Although we do not have any documents as such pertaining to the service of William Greene, there is information to be collated from various sources in our archives, which are fragmentary, enabling me to put together a reasonable account of his military career.
    William Greene first appears in our records in the Monthly Army List of November 1800, where he is shown as the most junior Lieutenant in the 82nd (Prince of Wales’s Volunteers) Regiment of Foot. I have not been able to trace any earlier service than this for him.4
  • Anecdote*: A presentation sword was presented to Capt. William Greene by his brother HJ Greene in 1806.
    This sword is made from the Damascus steel blade of Yatahan short sword, heavy silver guard and elk antler grip with silver end cap. The scabbard is from a cut down 1796 straight bladed cavalry sword.
    The top part is engraved with "Presented to Captain Wm Greene by his affectionate brother H J Greene - 1806".5
  • Milit-record: He was transferred to the 61st Regiment of Foot as a Captain 18th Dec 1806 from the 82nd of Foot. on 18 December 1806.
  • Milit-record: He was made a Captain in the 61st Foot Regiment on 11 June 1807 at England.1,6
  • Marriage*: He married Elizabeth "Eliza" Whitehead on 27 June 1807 at St Mary's, Nottingham, England.1,7,8
  • Anecdote*: His mother's journal records that "her son William sailed from Ireland for Guernsey. Leaving his wife and his children here at Cottage."8
  • Milit-record: Major William Greene was at the Battle of Busaco on 27 September 1810 at Busaco, Portugal.9
  • Milit-record: He was wounded at the Battle of Salamanca on 22 July 1812 at Salamanca, France.10
  • Anecdote: The Greene Family Journal records that "William's wife Eliza sailed for England".8
  • Milit-record: He fought at the Battle of the Nivelle; "Although the early winter rains are beginning to make life decidedly uncomfortable the CIC has his army moving up to the next river obstacle, the Nive, a month has passed and the rivers are running full when on 9th December they get the order to cross to the enemy banks, they would be lucky to stand with figures very slightly better than those last recorded. The crossing evolves into a two-stage affair having the convenience of a mid-stream island and little opposition whilst setting up pontoons to bridge the first half, resting through the night and then going on to repeat the process for the second half. There is a check on the enemy side as they approach the village of Villefranque along waterlogged paths. It is here no doubt that Captain Edward Charlton at the head of the Light company is wounded along with Captain William Green but this day only four of the rank & file are injured" on 10 November 1813 at River Nivelle, Villefranque, France.10
  • Milit-record: He won the "Gold medal Nive" at the skirmish at the Nive, was wounded. Cannon records: "Early in December (1813) a forward movement was ordered; and on the morning of the 9th of that month a beacon lighted on the heights above Cambo gave the signal for the attack, when the passage of the river Nive was forced, and the enemy driven back towards Bayonne. The sixth division passed the river on floating bridges. The advanced-guard (in which was the light company of the SIXTY-FIRST, formed in a light battalion under Captain Greene, of the regiment) evinced great gallantry, and surprised the first French piquet, which fled in dismay. Some sharp fighting occurred; Captain Greene was wounded, and Captain Charleton was sent from the regiment to take command of the light battalion. The swampy nature of the country retarded the advance of the division, and gave time for the French troops to effect their retreat towards Bayonne. The enemy advanced and attacked the British troops on the three following days, but were repulsed.
    At the passage of the “Nive” the regiment earned another honorary inscription for its colours; and Captain Greene received a medal. Its loss was limited to Captains Greene and Charleton wounded, and a few private soldiers killed and wounded.
    " on 9 December 1813 at River Nive, France.11,10
  • Milit-record: He was given the commission of Brevet Major conferred after the battle of the Nive possibly for distinguished service in the field; and received a medal for the battle of the Nive on 3 March 1814.12,6
  • Milit-record: He fought at the Battle of Toulouse; "Lieutenant Colonel Coghlan was dead as was Lieutenant Henry Arden and Ensign William Favell mortally wounded along with 16 of the ranks, a further 16 officers were brought down and, singularly every one recorded as seriously injured, they were; Brevet Lieutenant Colonel Oke, Brevet Major William Green, " on 10 April 1814 at Toulouse, France.11
