Untitled[edit]

Not sure how "Succeeded by: John Colborne, 1st Baron Seaton" makes sense. Is this referring to Commander of British North America? I don't see that in Colborne's bio and given that Colborne was at Waterloo, I'm not sure the timing works either. Wasn't Prevost replaced by either Edward Pakenham or Robert Ross (general)? Can someone who knows please comment. Thanks. Deet 20:54, 19 March 2006 (UTC)

Spelling of Name[edit]

It's clear he had French origins, but did he actually use a accent over the e in his name in his own time? I have my doubts, especially consideringly the level of anti-French feeling in Britain at this time. Do historians commonly write it that way? I've never seen in. A source is certainly needed to clear this up. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 22:13, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
