Rees Howell Gronow (1794-1865), "Captain Gronow," was a Welsh Grenadier Guards officer, an unsuccessful parliamentarian, a dandy and a writer of celebrated reminiscences. In 1812 he received a commission as an ensign in the 1st regiment of foot guards. In 1813 he took part in the principal military operations in Spain and in the following year returned with his battalion to London. Here he became one of the dandies of the town. In 1815 became lieutenant and captain in his regiment. From this period until 1821 he continued with his regiment in England, and then retired from the army. His name is chiefly remembered in connection with Reminiscences of Captain Gronow (1862).
