A friend has recently moved into Stoke House, Stoke St Mary, near Taunton and has come across a reference to a previous occupant having fought in the Zulu war. There is also a small article on the local village website as follows:-

"The striking Regency mansion called Stoke House is a more conspicuous feature of the hill. It was finished in about 1810 and owned sucessively by the Weaver, Harman and Patton families, local tradition recording that the horse chestnuts which line its former carriage drive commemorate the many children of Captain Thomas Patton. His grandson, Henry Walsh, spent his childhood at Stoke House, and later gained distinction in the Zulu Wars, being the first to greet Major John Chard after the defence of Rorke's Drift."

Is this true? The only reference I can find on the forum is that Lt Walsh served with the Somerset Light Infantry, and was with No 3 column and was present at Hlobane, Khambula and Ulundi.

If it is true it would be an amazing coincidence as Chard's final resting place at Hatch Beauchamp is only a mile or so from Stoke House.

Yes indeed Lt Walsh was there.  He was the son of Theobald Walsh of Stoke House.  And when Major Chard returned to Taunton after the battle in October 1879, Lt Walsh met him at Taunton and accompanied him to North Curry where Chard was going to stay with his sister and brother in law.  And Chard himself says that Lt Walsh was one of the first to greet him when No 3 Column got to Rorkes Drift.  Chard was of course buried at Hatch Beauchamp because his younger brother was rector.

Nice to know someone looks at my website on Stoke St Mary.  If you need any more info on Walsh or Stoke House please let me know. [send an email through the History website]
