During the Zulu War of 1879, Captain Carey was given leave to accompany a reconnoitring party under the command of the Prince Imperial of France, Louis Napoleon in order to verify a survey made previously. This party was ambushed by Zulus and the Prince Imperial was killed.
Captain Carey was requested to attend a Court of Enquiry. As a result, it was recommended he be tried by Court-Martial for 'Misbehaviour before the Enemy'. The Court-Martial concluded he was guilty and that he should be cashiered from the British Army. However, there was a flaw, the members of the Court-Martial were not sworn in, and when the matter was sent to be ratified in London, this point was raised. The Assistant Judge Advocate General O'Dowd overturned the findings of the Court and Captain Carey was allowed to go free.

1879 Graves

If I knew Captain Carey had a mention on the familey grave I would have looked it up and took a photograph, i was in Brxham about 3 months ago.
And never knew his familey were buried there.

He had quite a sad life after the incident an S/A

Thanks for the information next time i'm down that way I will look it up.

S.D

The photo was taken over 10 years ago. Then you could just make out his Rank and Name but not alot else.
We did take some rubbings but I have forget were we have put them.
I was back in Brixham last year and had another look at the grave, but was unable to make out much. It has weathered badly. I should have taken a few more photos but did not.
If I find the rubbings I will let you know.

Looking at the named website, you will find the following:

"In loving memory of Harriet, widow of Vice Admiral Sir Jahleel Brenton Bart KCB, died 9 Jan 1868 aged 74 years. Harriet, daughter of the above, wife of A F Carey, Vicar of this parish, died 8 June 1886 aged 62 years. Sidney Pelham de Burgh Brenton Carey, died 25 July 1870 aged 10 years. Leopold Hunsdon Brenton Carey died at Falmouth, Jamaica, 12 September 1875 aged 17 years. Jahleel Brenton Carey Capt. 98th Regiment died at Karachi 22 Feb 1883 aged 35 years, sons of Reverend A F and Mrs H M Carey".

Which is on the side of the family grave, which is now unreadable on the grave.

1879 Graves.
Thanks for that.
You say "We did take some rubbings" Is this something you do as an interest. and have you got any other photographs of the graves relating to the AZW. The main problem is there is just no one left to take care of these graves, half the ancestors of these people don't even know the exist.
Would you mind if I saved a copy of your photograph for my private collection.

Hi S.D

I and others have been locating graves and memorials to those who took part in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 for many years. It is a hobby I have and do have many photographs of graves to those who took part. I used to take rubbings when the graves were hard to read and we had to develop the photo films, But now with digi cameras, I just take the pictures.
Yes you may take a copy of the photograph for your private collection. I will send you a colour copy when i an next in Brixham as I live in Devon, but I do not know when that we be.
I have to agree with you, that not may people do not know about these graves and memorials and it is a shame. It is history being lost as each year passes.
