Does anyone have any information on a certain Mr Beaumont, he was with Chelsmford force on the 22nd of January.
Beaumont was the person who took Colonel Durnfords watch from his body with Dr Thrupp.

This is what i have on the watch and Beaumont

[b]"Stripped: a mess waistcoat, and the shirt beneath it, had been torn open, hanging from a slender chain fixed into a button-hole was a small gold watch and a bunch of charms. The expression of the face was peaceful, apparently disfigured by one long deep wound. Beaumont knelt down and removed the watch and chain, then taking up..

Thats all i have sorry

Any information would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

Hi All,
I have on record a certain William Henry Beaumont, who was born 24 February 1851 in India, the son of the late Lt-Col W. Beaumont, 23rd Madras Light Infantry. Educated at Sherbourne and Sandhurst, he was commissioned into the 75th (Stirlingshire) Regiment as an Ensign, August 187o. Promoted to Lieutenant later that year he was posted to South Africa in 1871 seeing service against the Bantu tribes. Resigned his commission in August 1875 to join the Colonial service in Natal.
Married Alice, daughter of the late John Millar, the Durban Member of the Legistrative Council.
William served as the Resident Magistrate of Newcastle during both the Anglo-Zulu war and the 1880-81 Anglo Boer war. In 1879 he served in the Natal Native Border Guard as Commandant of the Colonial Defensive District No: 1 (Klip River County) with the local rank of Captain (see footnote below). Later appointed Judge of the Supreme Court of Natal, 1892. Retired and knighted 3 May 1910. Served as the Chairman of the Native Land Commission from 1913 to 1916. Died in Durban 9 January 1932.
Footnote:
The Natal Native Border Guard do list certain European Officers rank as "Mister", which may explain the "Mr Beaumont" references, however his medal for South Africa was with no clasp which indicates that he did not (officially!) cross into Zululand.
As a further aside his account of the war was published in the Natal Mercury Supplement 22 January 1929 entitled "Isandhlwana Could Have Been Averted"

Hope this is of some help.

Regards

Phill
