Not to be confused with his contemporary, Charles John Napier. Born Whitehall. After succeeding at the battle of Hydrabad, which meant he had conquered Sindh province, he sent a despatch with the single Latin word 'peccavi' - 'I have sinned' (see what he did?). Died at his seat, Oaklands, near Portsmouth.
