I can find a lot of 18th Century gentlemen on horseback (tricorn hat, wig, the whole bit), but I cannot seem to find a 19th Century gentleman on horseback. I'm thinking more Jane Eyre than late-Victorian. Any suggestions?

Front Rank – Napoleonic Civilians, pack two has a mounted gentleman in it, assuming 28mm.

In addition to the Front Rank pack mentioned by Captain Cook, look for Waterloo British command packs. General Picton was present in civilian gear, so there are a few versions of him around. For example, this one is from PerryMiniatures:

And this is from AB Figures

Old Glory's War of 1812 US Command has a James Madison figure on horseback: link
I think the Madison figure is only of use for people wanting to refight the battle of Bladensburg. This did not turn out well for us, and I can't imagine many American gamers wanting to recreate this battle on the tabletop. So they probably bought the set, painted Jackson, Scott, Brown, et al., and left poor Madison in the bag in the back of their spare figures drawer. If you ask, somebody might have one to give you or sell cheap.
