Note that Henriette died only a few days after the birth of her daughter, probably as a result of complications, etc. So far we do not have Henriette's burial record. Harry is shown below dressed as an officer of the Turkish contingent during the Crimean War. Sir Richard Burton also served in the Turkish forces in the Crimea and in the book 'A Rage to Live', a biography of Richard & Isabel Burton by Mary S Lovell, the author notes that: "All the British officers who served with the Turkish forces wore ostentatious uniforms in order to maintain the respect of the men under their command ..." Harry was also one of the supervisors laying the telegraph through Persia. During this time he wrote two letters to his brother Morrice King Man. The Rev. Morrice Man writing in his diaries recalls Harry Edward as follows; Hubert Man's recollections of Harry are as follows. Sir Julian Goldsmid wrote a book about the laying of the telegraph and Harry appears on a number of pages.
Further notes: Harry's wife, Henriette Maria, was the second daughter of Captain John Fowle (H. M. 63rd regiment) and and Catherine McCormick. Between 1862 and 1864 the son, Harry, dies, Harry Edward himself dies, his wife dies, his brother Morrice King dies, and so does his sister Ella Emma. The marriage certificate of Harry and Henriette can be downloaded HERE (<--- PDF).
Henriette's brother, Edward Fowle, lived for much of his life in Rangoon and was involved in a messy divorce case, the details of which were published by the British Burma Advertiser Press in 1876. A PDF of this publication can be found on the bibliography page of this web site. Below a Russian cross picked up by Harry from the body of a Russian soldier during the Crimean War. (See The Rev. Morrice Man's recollections of Harry above).
