Seven of thirteen plates from, 'Views of St. Helena; Illustrative of Its Scenery & Historical Associations. From Photographs By G.W. Melliss, Esq. Surveyor-General of the Island', published in 1857. In 1815, the British government selected the island of Saint Helena as the place of detention of Napoleon Bonaparte. He was taken to the island in October 1815, staying at the Briars pavilion (plate 4) on the grounds of the Balcombe family's home until his permanent home, Longwood House (plates 6, 7 and 8), was completed. He died there on 5th May 1821. During this period, Saint Helena remained in the East India Company’s possession, but the British government met additional costs arising from guarding Napoleon. The island was strongly garrisoned with British troops, and naval ships circled the island.

AHT. 1900. [Astley Herbert Terry.]
Signed watercolour. Sheet: 175 x 250mm (7 x 9¾''). Mounted on board.
A watercolour by Lieutenant Astley Herbert Terry (1866 - after 1937). The son of Major General Astley Fellows Terry, the artist served with both the Army Service Corps and the 60th Rifles. His posting to Sierra Leone coincides with the Second Boer War, so his duties would have been to provide for the troops en route to South Africa. He was promoted to major at the time of his departure, which was probably to the Cape: a 'Major Terry' of the 60th Rifles is recorded as participating in the war. In the 1911 census Terry was recorded as living in Kensington. In 1937 Colonel Astley Herbert Terry was installed as Commander of the Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, which is the last reference to him we can trace.
