James Wolfe Life

James Wolfe (1727 – 1759), a British Army officer known for his regimentional changes and remembered particularly for his victory over the French at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham in Quebec as a major general in 1759.

Edward Wolfe, the son of a distinguished general, received his first commission at a young age and saw extensive service in Europe, where he served during the Austrian Succession.

His service in Flanders and Scotland, where he was instrumental in the suppression of the Jacobite Rebellion, attracted the attention of his superiors.

The progress of his career was stifled by the Peace Treaty of 1748, and he spent the remainder of the next eight years in the Scottish Highlands on garrison service.

He was a lieutenant-colonel by 23, and was already a brigade major at the age of 18. Wolfe had new aspirations after the Seven Years' War in 1756.

William Pitt was appointing him second-in-command of an expedition to capture Fortress of Louisbourg's aborted attack on Rochefort in 1757.

Following the success of the Siege of Louisbourg, he was appointed commander of a force that sailed up the Saint Lawrence River to capture Quebec City.

Wolfe defeated a French force under the Marquis de Montcalm, allowing British forces to capture the city.

Wolfe was killed in the Battle of the Plains of Abraham due to the injuries of three musketers. Wolfe's involvement in the takeover of Quebec in 1759 gave him enduring fame, and he became a symbol of Britain's victory in the Seven Years' War and subsequent territorial expansion.

He was depicted in the painting The Death of a General Wolfe, which became well-known around the world.

Wolfe was dubbed "The Hero of Quebec," "The Conqueror of Quebec," and even "The Conqueror of Canada" after the capture of Quebec led directly to the capture of Montreal, effectively ending French rule of the country.

Early life

James Wolfe was born at the local vicarage on January 2nd (1727, Old Style) in Westerham, Kent, the older of two sons of Colonel (later Lieutenant General) Edward Wolfe, a veteran soldier of Anglo-Irish origins and former Henrietta Thompson, and Henrietta Thompson. Edward Thompson MP, a well-known politician, was his uncle. The National Trust has conserved Wolfe's childhood home in Westerham, which he referred to as Spiers in his lifetime. Wolfe's family was long settled in Ireland, and he regularly corresponded with his uncle Major Walter Wolfe in Dublin. Stephen Woulfe, the distinguished Irish politician and judge of the next amid the same family's Limerick branch; his father was James Wolfe's third cousin.

The Wolfes were close to the Warde family, who lived in Westerham's Squerryes Court. George Warde, Wolfe's boyhood friend, rose to fame in Ireland as Commander-in-Chief.

Around 1738, the family moved to Greenwich, Kent's north-west Kent, from Greenwich. Wolfe was destined for a military career from his youth, joining his father's 1st Marine regiment as a volunteer at the age of 13.

Illness prevented him from participating in a big expedition against Spanish-controlled Cartagena in 1740, and his father sent him home a few months later. He missed what proved to be a disaster for the British forces at Cartagena's Siege, in which the majority of the expedition died of disease.

Why the vandals who cut down Captain Cook's statue are wrong: Historian JEREMY BLACK explains why famous navigator who charted Australia and New Zealand is an unfair target of anti-colonial mob

Captain James Cook is ripe for demolition at this moment, according to the attackers. He has also been targeted in Australia by 'anti-racism' campaigners, who have been bitterly chastised in Australasia, particularly Australia. And now the vandals have struck. Not sure about the Cook statues in the United Kingdom yet, but in Australia, the same statues were on display. The bronze statue of Cook (top right), which was built in 1914, has been sawn off at the ankles and kicked off its plinth (left), which has been painted in red with the phrase 'The Colony will fall'. In contrast, red is the vandals' color, since it implies that there is blood on the hands of such figures. Cooking is inaccurate. Red paint was also sprayed over Melbourne's Queen Victoria monument, which was daubed with the same word. Cook's depiction of taking possession of New South Wales is on display at the bottom right.
