Col. John Dyke Acland

Major John Dyke Acland (18 February 1746 — 31 October 1778 ), son of the 3rd Baronet, was a British officer, who was wounded and taken prisoner at the Battle of Bemis Heights, near Stillwater, New York, in 1777. His wife, Lady Harriet, sought him in the American camp; and after his death in a duel, she married Mr. Brudenell, who had accompanied her in her perilous pursuit of her husband from the camp at Saratoga.
The couples only son was the 4th Baronet but as he died young (1778-1785), the 5th Baronet was his father's brother.

Lady Christian Harriet Caroline Fox-Strangways

From 1911 Encyclopedia:

ACLAND, CHRISTIAN HENRIETTA CAROLINE (1750-1815), usually called Lady Harriet Acland, was born on the 3rd of January 1750, the daughter of the first earl of Ilchester. In 1770 she married John Dyke Acland, who as a member of parliament became a vigorous supporter of Lord North's policy towards the American colonies, and, entering the British army in 1774, served with Burgoyne's expedition as major in the 2Oth regiment of foot. Lady Harriet accompanied her husband, and, when he was wounded at Ticonderoga, nursed him in his tent at the front. In the second battle of Saratoga Major Acland was again badly wounded and subsequently taken prisoner. Lady Harriet was determined to be with him, and underwent great hardship to accomplish her object, proving herself a courageous and devoted wife. A story has been told that being provided with a letter from General Burgoyne to the American general Gates, she went up the Hudson river in an open boat to the enemy's lines, arriving late in the evening. The American outposts threatened to fire into the boat if its occupants stirred, and Lady Harriet had to wait eight " dark and cold hours," until the sun rose, when she at last received permission to join her husband. Major Acland died in 1778, and Lady Harriet on the 21st of July 1815.
