He was a celebrated solider serving under Wellington in the Peninsula Campaign and at Waterloo. He was created a baronet in 1821 and was entitled to use an honourary augmentation in his arms of a sword encircled by a laurel wreath bewteen the medals he received for his conduct at the Battle of Orthes in 1814 and at Waterloo the next year. In 1810 he married Mary, daughter of Alexander Ellice at St. George's Church, Hanover Square, London.

He was succeeded by his son Sir Edward Clarence Kerrison 2nd Bt. (1821-1886), M.P. for Eye and then East Sussex. He married Lady Caroline Margaret Fox-Strangways, daughter of Henry Fox-Strangways, 3rd Earl of Ilchester, in 1844. They had no children and the title became extinct on the death of the 2nd baronet.
