PostSubject: Colonel Percy Harry Stanley BARROW Where is he buried. ???   Mon Nov 01, 2010 10:46 pm

I'm a bit confused. Came across this. Is he Buried in Saltwood Kent or Ryde Isle of White. ???? scratch

ISLE OF WIGHT OBSERVER Saturday 16th Jan 1886, page 8
Death Notice:-
BARROW .. On the 13th inst., at Cairo after one days illness, Percy Harry Stanley BARROW, Colonel of the 19th Hussars.


ISLE OF WIGHT OBSERVER Saturday 16th Jan 1886, page 5

DEATH OF COLONEL BARROW

Our obituary records the death at Cairo, on 13th inst., of Colonel Percy Harry Stanley BARROW, of the 19th Reg., a nephew of our respected Mayor, after only one day's illness.
The Standard correspondent's account appears in today's issue as follows:- I regret to state that Colonel BARROW, who re-opened an old wound while engaged in the game of tent-pegging, died last night. His funeral this afternoon was attended by almost every officer of the garrison. His loss will be greatly felt, especially in his regiment, the 19th Hussars, for which he has done so much during the short time he has held the Coloneley. At the funeral, Count BELLEGARDE and a large number of dignitaries both civil and military, were present. The funeral ceremony took place with full military honours.



ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY PRESS Saturday 24th April 1886, page 8

THE LATE COL. BARROW, C.B., C.M.G.

A native correspondent of high rank, writing recently from Cairo in reference to the late Col. BARROW, says:- When the late Col. BARROW took command of the 19th Hussars, he devoted himself to looking after the comforts of his officers and men.. He made an arrangement with a Greek to keep the canteen, by paying so much a month from the mess fund. This gave the greatest satisfaction, as the best things could be got at the most reasonable prices. When the regiment went to Suakim, the Colonel took the same contractor with him, with a good supply, amongst other things, of Bass’s ale and Crosse and Blackwell’s manufactures. He also made similar arrangements when in the Soudan last year. The same canteen steward crossed the desert from Korosko to Dongola with 150 camels, and when he met Col. BARROW and his regiment, both officers and men gladly welcomed the Greek and his stores. On its return to Cairo, the regiment occupied the best quarters at Abbassiyeh; and to keep the men from the slums of Cairo, the late Colonel arranged with the contractor to erect a large theatre to accommodate 300 men, and made it free for all regiments. Col. BARROW, before his untimely death, presented the regiment with a magnificient shield, to be held by the best shooting troop each year. The shield is 2ft. 6in. in diameter, and of an ancient Danish pattern, with a black ebony boarder, on the top of which are the honours of the regiment and at the bottom the inscription:- 19th Princess of Wales Own Hussars, Troop Challenge Shield, presented by Col. P. H. S. BARROW, C.B.,C.M.G., 1885. In the first year, the shield was won by B troop, which served in the desert under the late General STEWART, and the correspondent concludes by saying that “Whatever troop is fortunate enough to win it in future years, it will treasure it with pride as a heirloom of its gallant deceased Colonel.”

Littlehand.only you could find this.I'm not sure if they are saying he is or just his relatives, I have sent e-mail to Ryde Social Heritage Group. Hope they will give us the answer, unless they think he is buried there. Idea

Hopefully 1879Graves & Rai might have an answer ?

Hi All,
The KLH also found this one at Ryde on a visit looking for someone else, we feel that this is relatives, and he is buried at Saltwood as is his brother.

"Hello Peter

Thank you for your message, no we are not saying Col Barrow is buried in
Ryde Cemetery, just that he is mentioned on the memorial.

We record all the names that appear on the memorials in Ryde Cemetery
(whether or not the people are actually buried there). We then carry out
research to try and find out more information about the lives and deaths of
the people mentioned.

I think from reading the documents added to the record by our Research team
that Col Barrow was actually buried in Cairo where he died. He died on 13th
and was buried on 16th so I doubt it would have been possible to return his
body to the UK in that time. I believe he is just remembered on the
memorials of his relatives in both Ryde and Kent cemeteries.

If you have any other information about Col Barrow that we could add to our
records we would be pleased to receive it."
Best wishes

Interesting.

Lieutenant-Colonel William Thomas Marshall VC (5 December 1854 - 11 September 1920)

He was 29 years old, and a Quartermaster-Sergeant in the 19th Hussars, British Army during the Mahdist War when the following deed took place for which he was awarded the VC.

On 29 February 1884 at El Teb, Sudan, the Commanding Officer of the 19th Hussars (Lt. Col. Percy Barrow) was severely wounded, his horse was killed and he was on the ground surrounded by the enemy. Quartermaster-Sergeant Marshall, rode to his assistance, seized his hand and dragged him through the enemy back to the regiment, saving him from certain death.

He later became Quartermaster and Captain in the 19th Hussars. In 1905, as a Major, he became Camp Quartermaster of Aldershot. He retired in 1907. In 1918 he was promoted Lieutenant-Colonel.

His Victoria Cross is displayed at the 15th/19th King's Royal Hussars Museum at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.

Is there anyway of finding out if his funeral did take place in Cairo. It makes sense to have buried him there due to the hot climate. But saying that, his remains could have been brought back years later.

Hi Littlehand
Now that is what I call a great find. (I did not know about the one on the IoW)

Admin
Good work with Janette Gregson, Chairman, Ryde Social Heritage Group Idea

Sas1
Now that is a good question, I am working on that one now.

Rai
Have you seen the his burial record at Saltwood Church?

Admin
Could you return and view the records if they have them?

Hi Andy,
Families usually put up memorials inside churches, or mention there love ones on a previous family grave, if the body has not been returned to this country,, It is a rare occurance for the family to put up an individual gravestone without a body.

Hi Rai

I have to agree with you on what you have said. I wanted to know if anyone has seen a burial record for him, so that we can prove where he is buried.
Still looking to see if he was buried in Egypt? (First) scratch

Have I put a spanner in the works.

Came across this, busy looking for infromation.

In the north aisle the east window was inserted in memory of Colonel Percy Harry Stanley Barrow, C.B.,C.M.G., of the 19tli Hussars, by his mother, brothers, and sisters, in
September 1887. His body lies in the churchyard.

Some about him in the Zuluwar. Source: Northeast Medals.

SIR,
I HAVE the honour to report my arrival here at 10 A.M. this day, with the column under my command, and, I am happy to state, without a casualty of any kind—except, of course, those which occurred in the engagement of yesterday, of which I have already duly informed you by telegram, despatched yesterday evening.
Yesterday morning, the mounted troops which preceded the column under Major Barrow, had crossed the Inyezane River—which is about four miles from our camping ground on the previous night—when I received a note from him to say that he had selected a fairly open space for a halting place, which he had carefully vedetted. I at once rode forward, to reconnoitre, and found the ground covered with more bush than seemed desirable for an outspan ; but as there was no water between the Inyezane and the places where we bivouacked last night—four miles further on, and with several steep hills to climb—I decided upon outspanning for a couple of hours, to feed and rest the oxen, and to enable the men to breakfast.
It was then just eight o'clock, and I was in the act of giving directions about the pickets and scouts required for our protection, and the wagons had already begun to park, when the leading company of the Native Contingent, who were scouting in front—personally directed by Captain Hart, Staff Officer to the Officer commanding that Regiment — discovered the enemy advancing rapidly over the ridges in our front, and making for the clumps of bush around us.
The Zulus at once opened a heavy fire upon the men of the company who had shown themselves in the open, and they lost one officer, four non-commissioned officers, and three men killed, almost immediately after the firing began. Unfortunately, owing to scarcely any of the officers or non-commissioned officers of the Native Contingent being able to speak Kafir, and some not even English (there are several foreigners among them), it has been found most difficult to communicate orders, and it is to be feared that these men who lost their lives by gallantly holding their ground did so under the impression that it was the duty of the contingent to fight in the first line, instead of scouting only, and, after an engagement, to pursue.
I must add, however, that every exertion has been made by Major Graves, Commandant Nettleton, and Captain Hart, to explain to both the officers and men the duties expected of them. These officers, indeed, have been indefatigable in their exertions.
As soon as the firing commenced, I directed the Naval Brigade, under Commander Campbell, Lieutenant Lloyd's division of guns, and Captain Jackson's and Lieutenant Martin's companies of the Buffs, to take up a position on a knoll close by the road (and under which they were halted), and from whence the whole of the Zulu advances could be seen and dealt with.
Meanwhile, the wagons continued to park, and as soon as the length of the column had thereby sufficiently decreased, I directed the two companies of the Buffs, which were guarding the wagons about half way down the column, to clear the enemy out of the bush, which had been already shelled, and fired into with rockets and musketry, by the troops on the knoll above-mentioned. These companies, led by Captains Harrison and Wyld, and guided by Captain Macgregor, D.A.Q.M.G., whom I sent back for this purpose, moved out in excellent order, and quickly getting into skirmishing order, brought their right shoulders gradually forward, and drove the Zulus before them back into the open, which again exposed them to the rockets, shells, and musketry from the knoll.
This movement released the main body of the Mounted Infantry and Volunteers, who, with the Company of Royal Engineers, had remained near the Inyezane, to protect that portion of the convoy of wagons. -The Royal Engineers happened to be working at the drift when the engagement began.
When thus released, both the Engineers and Mounted Troops, under Captain Wynne and Major Barrow, respectively moved forward with the infantry. Skirmishers on the left of the latter, the whole being supported by a half-company of the Buffs and a half-company of the 99th Regiment, sent out by Lieutenant-Colonel Welman, 99th Regiment, who with the rear of the column, was now coming up.
About this time the enemy was observed by Commander Campbell lo be trying to outflank our left, and he offered to go with a portion of the Naval Brigade to drive away a body of Zulus who had got possession of a kraal about 400 yards from the knoll, and which was helping their turning movement. The Naval Brigade was supported by a party of the officers and non-commissioned officers of the Native Contingent, under Captain Hart, who were posted on high ground on the left of the Etshowe Road, and who checked the Zulus from making any further attempt on our left.
Shortly afterwards, when the kraal was evacuated, Commander Campbell suggested that the enemy should be driven off still further, to which I at once assented, and I desired Colonel Parnell to take Captain Forster's company, the Buffs, which up to this time had remained at the foot of the knoll, and assist the Naval Brigade to attack some heights beyond the kraal, upon which a considerable body of Zulus were still posted.
The action was completely successful, and the Zulus now fled in all directions, both from our front and left, and before the skirmishers on the right.
I now ordered the column to be reformed, and at noon we resumed our march, and bivouacked for the night on the ground described in the first part of my letter.
The last shot I fired was about half-past 9 A.M. I enclose a list of the killed and wounded, and, in addition, I beg to state that both Colonel Parnell and myself had our horses shot under us.
The loss of the enemy I can, of course, only approximately give. By all accounts, however — and I have taken every pains to verify and confirm the statements made—upwards of 300 Zulus were killed. The wounded, if there were any, were either carried off or hid in the bush, as only two were found. The dead were lying about in heaps of seven and eight, and in one place ten dead bodies were found close together. At another 35 were counted within a very small space.
As far as I can ascertain, the numbers opposed to us were about 4,000, composed of the Umxapu, Umdhlanefu, and the Ingulubi Regiments, and some 650 men of the district.
I had already been warned, through Mr. Fynney, Border Agent, and other sources, that I might expect to be attacked at any moment after crossing the Umsindusi River, but the number of Zulus stated to be in the neighbourhood was estimated at about 8,000.
All the commanding officers speak highly of the behaviour of their men during the engagement, and of the coolness of the officers and the pains taken by them to control the expenditure of ammunition.
This I can personally vouch for as regards troops on the knoll, as I was present with them the whole time. The practice made by Lieutenant Loyd's guns, and by the rockets of the Naval Brigade, directed by Mr. Cotter, boatswain of H.M.S. "Active," was excellent, and no doubt contributed materially to the success of the day.
Major Barrow particularly wishes me to mention the steadiness and good conduct under fire of the Natal Mounted Volunteer Corps. Those engaged were the Victoria and Stanger Mounted Rifles and the Natal Hussars.
Of the commanding officers themselves I have already, spoken.
From the officers of 017 staff, Colonel Walker J.B., Captain MacGregor, and Lieutenant knight, the Buffs,—my orderly officer—I have received every assistance, not only during yesterday's engagement, but ever since they joined me.
I cannot speak too highly of the energy and attention to their duties of Staff-Surgeon Norbury, R.N., my Senior Medical Officer, and his assistants. The field hospital was established in a convenient place, almost immediately after the firing began, and the wounded received every attention.
Lastly, I wish to report the good example shown to the Native Pioneers by Captain Beddoes and Lieutenant Porrington, who, throughout our march, under the direction of Lieutenant Main, R.E., repaired our road in front, and during the engagement remained on the knoll, fighting rifle in hand.
I must apologise for the great length of this letter ; but as the present is the first campaign of British troops against the Zulus, and as the Natal natives were being tested as soldiers for the first time, I have purposely gone into details. Should we again be engaged with the enemy there will, of course, be no further necessity for describing everything so minutely.
To-morrow morning I propose sending two companies of the Buffs, two companies of the Native Contingent, and a small number of mounted men, to reinforce Lieutenant-Colonel Ely, 99th Regiment, who, with three companies of his regiment, left behind for the purpose, is now on his way to Etshowe, with a convoy of 60 commissariat wagons.
I have written to request Colonel Ely not to advance beyond the Umsindusi till reinforced.
On Saturday, Major Coates starts for the Tugela with 50 empty wagons, escorted by four companies infantry, two native companies, and a few troopers to bring up more stores.
I enclose a couple of sketches of the ground on which the engagement took place, made by Captain McGregor and Lieutenant Knight, from memory.
I have the honour to be, Sir,
Your most obedient servant,
C. K. PEARSON,
Colonel.

Pete. The church in Saltwood claims.

"Crossing to the south wall of the church, we see The Barrow Windows on either side of the door. They are to Colonel Percy Stanley Barrow CB, CMG The 19th Prince of Wales Own Hussars 1887, and Colonel Charles Lousada Thesiger Barrow DSO, The Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) 1893. Both are buried in the graveyard. These windows depict the Transfiguration (St Matthew 17.1 to 18) and the Resurrection (St Matthew 28.1 to 10) respectively."

Just to keep you up-to-date.

Reply from the Revd Nicholas Cooper.


Dear Mr Harman


I'm afraid I do not have the time to help with specific genealogical enquires. However, our burial records for that period are deposited with the Canterbury Cathedral Archives If a body was buried at Saltwood, there should be an entry in the parish burial register. Sorry I can not be of more help.


Yours

Has anyone got an up-date of whether or not he is buried in Saltwood Kent or Egypt? I have spent a considerable time looking for the answer. No nearer to finding the truth, it would be easier finding out what really took place at Isandlwana. scratch

Pete another mystery!
It's written that BARROWs died of a wound received during the Zulu War that burst open due to
due to exertion while serving in Cairo. The inscription below states the wound was received during of The battle of EL TEB.

Does anyone have any details relating to Barrows being wounded during the Zulu War or EL TEB.

Littlehand You say it is written that he was wounded in the Zulu war. And the wound burst open. Can you post the source. I can't find anything like it.

Chelmsford's report on Gingindlhovu reads as follows. "Colonel Northey 3/60th received a bullet wound from which he eventually died two days ago. Lt. Courteney's horse was shot as he stood beside him, Captain Barrow and Lt Col Crealock being slightly wounded at the same time". Barrow subsequently led the mounted pursuit over several miles. So it seems more likely that it was his serious wound at El Teb that later caused his death.

He was wounded in the arm, I'm guessing a game of tent pegging was to see who could bang home the most tent pegs in a given time or the quickest, makes sense his wound bursting open. Still looking for evidence of burial in Cairo?


"Battle of El-Teb, 29 February 1884, the 10th Hussars and two squadrons of the 19th Hussars under Lieutenant-Colonel Percy Barrow, charged a large body of Sudanese on horses, camels and foot. The Sudanese, taking advantage of the broken ground and scrub, hamstrung many of the horses as they passed, and then attacked their fallen riders. Of those brought down in the melee few came out alive. One of those brought down was Colonel Barrow; his horse had been killed and he had received a spear thrust which pinned his arm to his side. When he fell, Quartermaster Sergeant William Marshall seized a loose horse, and was attempting to place him on it, when Private Bolsley, to whom it belonged, having been thrown from the saddle, came up on foot, and under a heavy fire supported his officer into the Infantry lines, assisted by Sergeant W. S. Fenton. For their bravery, Marshall was awarded the Victoria Cross and Bolsley and Fenton were each awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal"

Littlehand,

Tent-pegging - it is skill at arms display. The tent peg is in the ground and a rider armed normally with a lance, although it could be a sword, attempts to retrieve the tent peg from the ground with the point of their weapon.

Although your suggestion sounds like fun!
