Biographical notes:

Eighth son of John Brock and Elizabeth de Lisle, born on the Island of Guernsey, October 6, 1769. After military service on the continent, he came to Canada in 1802, and was stationed at Quebec, Niagara, and York until the War of 1812. He was appointed president and administrator of Upper Canada, and was the soul of its defense. His troops captured Detroit on August 15, and on October 13 defeated the Americans at Queenston Heights, where he was mortally wounded. He was not married. (from Wallace. "Dic.Can. Biog.")
