Sy Scholfield quotes "The Monthly Chronologer," London Magazine, or, Gentleman's Monthly Intelligencer, February 1774, p. 101: "Thursday 24. This day, at five o'clock in the afternoon, her majesty was taken in labour, and at a quarter past six was safely delivered of a prince." Same data in The Westminster Magazine, February 1774, p. 103.

Scholfield also quotes "Births," The Monthly Miscellany, March 1774, p. 157: "Feb. 24. About half an hour after six this evening, the Queen was happily delivered of a Prince. . . This great event was soon after made known by the firing of the Tower guns." Same data in Hibernian magazine, or, Compendium of entertaining knowledge, March 1774, p. 170.

Scholfield further quotes a biography with a different time of birth, but no source: "An Illustration of the Liturgy of the Church of England" by Thomas Pruen (Rivington, 1820), p. 124: "HRH Adolphus Frederick, Duke of Cambridge, their Majesties seventh son, and tenth child, was born February 24, 1774, at 5 o'clock in the afternoon."
