British general.
Entering the army in 1815, he was sent (1823) to India, where he served in the first Burma War (1824-26), the first Afghan War (1839), and the Sikh Wars (1843-49). During the Indian Mutiny, Havelock recaptured (July, 1857) Cawnpore (Kanpur) from the rebels, but he was too late to save the British population from massacre.

In Sept., 1857, he relieved Lucknow from siege, but he and his forces were then caught in the renewed siege. He died a few days after the relief of the city in November.
