Henry joined the 1st Foot Guards on 16th July 1793, probably as a new recruit aged about 16 years. The muster for the period 25 December 1800 to 24 June 1801 contains an entry for"Hen’y Pickett” in Lt. Col. Henry Campbells’ Company (32nd Company, 3rd Battalion) with the regiment based at Westminster.
For the period 25 June to 24 December 1801 three men were entered in the “casualties” column, all being discharged on 27 July, including Henry Pickett, who was initially sentenced to death and then transportation on 22 Jul 1801. [Provenance available]
