Gen.Sir Peregrine 
Maitland
, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Sir Peregrine Maitland (July 6, 1777 - May 30, 1854) was a British soldier and colonial administrator. He joined the Grenadier Guards at the age of 15. He served with distinction at the Battle of Waterloo and was knighted in 1815. He was appointed lieutenant-governor of Upper Canada in 1818 and supported the Family Compact that dominated the province. He attempted to suppress and reform pro-American tendencies in the colony and resisted demands of radicals in the government. His tenure in Upper Canada ended in 1828 when he was appointed lieutenant-governor of Nova Scotia serving there from 1828 until 1834. Maitland went to India and became commander in chief of the Madras army in 1836 serving for two years. In 1844 he became governor of the Cape of Good Hope, but was removed during the Kaffir War.
