Vesey was born about 1760.
20 Dec 1785. Marriage to Harriott Travers in County Cork, Ireland.
He is mentioned in the military record of his son as having died in battle, 4 May 1799. He died while in service to the British East India Company, during the Siege of Seringapatam, in the 4th Anglo-Mysore War Indeed, the excerpt below says that Lieutenant Vesey Hill led a group of 76 soldiers who volunteered for the forlorn-hopes, following the breach in the walls of Seringapatam, and he perished there.
He is memorialized on The Cenotaph of the officers of the 12th and 74th Regiments, Ganjam.
On the 19th of January, 1797, disembarked at Fort St. George the ensuing morning, and the officers were hospitably entertained at dinner by the gallant 74th Regiment, then doing garrison duty there. This night I indulged so freely in their good Madeira wine, that I became disgracefully intoxicated, abused our kind hosts, and was carried to bed insensible. On awakening next morning in the quarters of Lieutenant Vesey Hill (who afterwards led the forlorn hope at Seringapatam and was killed), I found both my eyes closed, with large irritating lumps all over my body, and in a high state of fever.
