Captain Sir Henry Morland (1837-1891)


1891 Obituary [1]

CAPTAIN SIR HENRY MORLANDd ied at Bombay on the 27th July, 1891, after a brief illness, in his fifty-fifth year.

Sir Henry Morland held a unique position. He was an Anglo- Indian of a type now almost extinct. He had made India his home, largely devoting his talents and energies to breaking down the barriers which divide the natives from their European fellow subjects, and his long residence of forty years in the country, his complete assimilation of Anglo-Indian life, and his unbounded hospitality and generosity had made him one of the best known and most popular men, at any rate on the western side of India.

He was the third son of the late Mr. John Morland, Barrister-at-law, of Cappelthwaite and Killington Halls, Westmoreland, and was born on the 9th of April, 1837. . . . [more]
