The headstone of Lieutenant-General Sir Gonville Bromhead (1758-1822), who was created the 1st Baronet Bromhead of Thurlby Hall on 19 February 1806. The name Bromhead however will perhaps be better know to most people through the youngest child, Gonville Bromhead, born to Major Sir Edmund de Gonville Bromhead, the 3rd Baronet and his wife Judith. The young Gonville Bromhead came from a notable military family (his great-grandfather, Boardman Bromhead, fought under Major General James Wolfe at Quebec; his grandfather, Sir Gonville Bromhead, was a lieutenant general who fought in the American Revolutionary War & his father was a veteran of the Battle of Waterloo whilst and his three older brothers were officers in the British Army). At the age of 22 he entered the 24th Regiment of Foot as an ensign and was promoted to lieutenant 4 years later. In 1878 Bromhead's battalion was deployed to southern Africa and it was there that he distinguished himself and received a Victoria Cross for his actions during the the Battle of Rorke's Drift in the Anglo-Zulu War where 150 British soldiers, many of whom were sick and wounded as patients in a field hospital, successfully held off a force of 4,000 Zulu warriors.
