Sir David Baird, first baronet (1757-1829), army officer. Baird served in India (1780-1801). In the Siege of Seringapatam in 1799, Baird (who twenty years earlier had been held captive by the Indians for nearly four years) led the British troops in their assault. In the palace Baird discovered the body of Tipu Sultan (an event commemorated by Sir David Wilkie's painting 'General Sir David Baird discovering the body of the Sultaun Tippoo Sahib' (National Gallery of Scotland). Baird also served in Egypt before heading a British attack on Cape Colony in 1806, culminating in the Battle of Blauberg near Cape Town. He then served in Spain before relinquishing his command for executive office in later years.
