Sir Charles Augustus Murray, 1806 - 1895, travelled in America in the 1830s, joining a tribe of wandering Pawnees for some months. He fell in love with a young woman, living near Niagara, whose wealthy father was against their relationship. Murray declared his love obliquely in a romantic novel, which he published in 1844 and married Elsie Wadsworth after her father's death in 1849. In 1846, he was appointed Consul-general for Egypt.
