Edward Durnford


"General Edward William Durnford's second son, he was born May 8, 1832.  He entered the Royal Marines in 1851 and appointed to the Royal Marine Artillery in 1852.  During the Crimean War he served on HMS James Watt in the Baltic and was present at the siege of Bomarsunt. He served briefly with the 2nd Company of the Royal Sappers and Miners. He was later appointed to the command of mortar-boats and served during the bombardment of Sweaborg on August 9, 1855.  For this service he was mentioned in dispatches and received the Crimean War medal.  He subsequently served on HMS Forth until 1856.  In 1862 he was promoted to Captain.  From Sept. 1867 to May 1870 he was Staff Captain, Royal Marine Artillery and appointed to Superintendent of Artificers.  He was in charge of all public works in progress at Eastney Barracks and Fort Cumberland.  He was promoted to Brevet-Major in 1872 and promoted to (honorary) Lieutenant-Colonel on May 8, 1877 at his retirement.  He married Julia Penrice on March 3, 1859.  Four children, two sons and two daughters were born to them.  His eldest son and youngest daughter died in infancy.  He died in 1926 at the age of 94"
