1763 - 1846


Sir George Hilaro 
Barlow
, of Fir Grove, farnham 1846. 4th son. 10 Oct 1805 - 31 Jul 1807 - Acting Governor General, British East India Co.. Governor of Madras (1809). Seen a note: Lady Eliza BARLOW, former wife of Sir George Hilaro BARLOW (who was briefly Governor General of India and later Governor of Madras.) Eliza, a.k.a. Eliza SMITH, Elizabeth SMITH, and Mrs. George Pratt BARLOW, died in 1836 and apparently her obituary appeared in Gentleman£s Magazine." BARLOW, SIR GEORGE HILARO (1762-1847), Anglo-Indian statesman, was appointed to the Bengal Civil Service in 1778, and in 1788 carried into execution the permanent settlement of Bengal. When the marquess of Cornwallis died in 1805, Sir George Barlow was nominated provisional governor-general, and his passion for ­cconomy and retrenchment in that capacity has caused him to be known as the only governor-general who diminished the area of British territory; but his nomination was rejected by the home government, and Lord Minto was appointed. Subsequently Barlow was created governor of Madras, where his want of tact caused a mutiny of officers in 1809, similar to that which had previously occurred under Clive. In 1812 he was recalled, and lived in retirement until his death in February 1847. He was' created a baronet in 1803.
