KANE, JOHN (d. 1834), second lieutenant and adjutant late royal invalid artillery, was promoted to that rank from sergeant 1 July 1799. He was author of the well-known ‘Kane's Lists,’ lists of the officers of the royal artillery from 1763 to the date of publication (Greenwich, 1815). Revised editions were published at Woolwich in 1869 and 1891. Kane died at Woolwich 29 Aug. 1834.

Another John Kane, presumably son of the above, a first lieutenant royal artillery, died at Calcutta in December 1818.
