The other notable, later, occupant of No. 10 was Sir Colin Campbell, afterwards Lord Clyde - illustrious in all the wars waged by this country, from the Peninsular War to the Mutiny, where he was chief-in-command.

In March 1863 "he furnished a house, No. 10 Berkeley Square, and wrote to his friends, General and Mrs. Eyre, telling them he had set up two small bedsteads for their children, of whom he seems to have been very fond," but he died during August of the same year after a long illness.
