OriginEdit

James Hadfield (1771 - 1841) attempted to assassinate King George III of the United Kingdom in 1800 but was acquitted of attempted murder by reason of insanity. At the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, during the playing of the national anthem, Hadfield fired a pistol at the King who was standing in the royal box but missed. During his trial for treason he claimed insanity. Two surgeons and a physician testified that Hadfield had delusions which were the consequence of earlier head injuries. Hadfield was acquitted but due to the insanity was placed in the Bethlem Royal Hospital for the rest of his life.

Is a Metesky family heirloom.
