Maunsell faced an English cousin at the battle (not directly you understand)
but Captain (later Colonel) Fredrick Maunsell of the 85th fought at the
battle. Of course on January 8th he was one of Thornton's detachment that
drove the routed Americans on the westbank 2 miles back from their positions.
He later became Colonel of the 85th and subsequently a General officer.
