Created a baronet on 27th July 1838 by Queen Victoria as a reward for saving both her & her mother (The Duchess of Kent) when she was still Princess Victoria. The horses of the Royal carriage had bolted & Captain Sotherton, who was a huge & powerful man, stood in the way of the horses, seized the animals by their bridles & compelled them by sheer physical strength to stop thus saving the occupants from serious if not fatal injury. He died childless in 1853.\r\nhttp://www.ancestryhost.org/micklethwait.org/leading_members/titled.htm.
