It is documented that George Thomas Wingate (1776-1817) was taken prisoner of war in late 1805 after his ship, the Biter, was wrecked at Calais. Lieutenant Wingate of the ship Biter was recorded as being a prisoner at Verdun, France in May 1811. He was apparently released in about 1813/14 and was promoted to Commander on 15 Jun 1814 but documentation is yet to be sighted by me on this. It is documented that the French treated their captives well and prisoners were allowed to roam freely within the walled city of Verdun. It is therefore likely that G.T. Wingate's wife Thamzin joined him in Verdun and that his children Thomas (b. 1807), Elizabeth (b. 1808), James (b. 1811) and Lucretia (b. 1813) were actually born in France rather than in Stirling, Scotland.
