George Sparrow

In our local cemetery, there is a memorial to a George Sparrow, who was a King's messenger and was assassinated whilst in Sicily in 1807.
Not much else seems to be known of this man and i think would seem to be the basis of an interesting story.
Does anybody know of this character, what was he doing in Sicily? Why was he assassinated, was he a spy?
