Harry Escombe was prime minister of Natal. He was born in 1838 at London and died in 1899. He emigrated at an early age to Natal, where he became one of the leading solicitors and barristers of the colony. In 1872 he became member for Durban in the Legislative Council, served in the Zulu Campaign of 1879 to 1880 and in the Transvaal war of 1881. He was elected prime minister in 1897 and held the post until 1899.

Portrait of Harry Escombe


Harry Escombe (25 July 1838 - 27 December 1899), South African statesman, a member of a Somersetshire family, was born at Notting Hill, London, and was educated at St Paul's School.
After four years in a stockbroker's office, he emigrated, in 1859, to the Cape. The following year he moved to Natal, and, after trying other occupations, qualified as an attorney. He became recognized as the ablest pleader in the colony, and, in 1872, was elected for Durban as a member of the legislative council, and subsequently was also placed on the executive council. In 1880 he secured the appointment of a harbour board for Natal, and was himself made chairman. The transformation of the port of Durban into a harbour available for ocean liners was due entirely to his energy.
In 1888-1889 he defended Dinizulu and other Zulu chiefs against a charge of high treason. For several years he opposed the grant of responsible government to Natal, but by 1890 had become convinced of its desirability, and on its conferment in 1893 he joined the first ministry formed, serving under Sir John Robinson as attorney-general. In February 1897, on Sir John's retirement, Escombe became premier, remaining attorney-general and also holding the office of minister of education and minister of defence.
In the summer of that year he was in London with the other colonial premiers at the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria, and was made a member of the privy council. Cambridge University conferred upon him the honorary degree of LL.D. The election that followed his return to Natal proved unfavourable to his policy, and he was suceeded in office, in October 1897, by Sir Henry Binns KCMG. Throughout his life he took an active interest in national defence. He had served in the Zulu War of 1879, was commander of the Natal Naval Volunteers and received the volunteer long service decoration. In October 1899 he went to the northern confines of the colony to take part in preparing measures of defence against the invasion by the Boers.
