Henry Buckton Laurence 1842 - 1886 was the son of George Henry Darby Laurence and Frances Buckton. George Henry Darby Laurence was a merchant, who was in business with his father Benjamin, trading as Lawrence and Sons, in Zante, Greece, and as a merchant in Hornsey, London. He went bankrupt in 1845 and died the following year.

Henry joined the Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regiment as an Ensign, by purchase, in June 1861. He became a Lieutenant in 1865, a Captain in 1873 and Major in 1881. He served time in Malta and Canada. He had probably been trained as an artistic topographer at Military Academy. Before the days of photography, drawings were made by the military to record every aspect of military life. His drawings made in Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Quebec were later made into nineteen lithographic prints and published as "Sketches of Canadian Sports and Pastimes" in London, 1870.

One drawing made during a curling match on the frozen lake near Halifax Nova Scotia in 1867, shows people playing a game of hockey in the background. Although the game of hockey has been known to be played for centuries, this image is thought to be the first of the game.
