Views of India album

Biographical / Historical

Edmund and William Bellairs were the sons of Sir William of Mulbarton, Norfolk (1793-1863), who as a member of the 15th Hussars served in campaigns against Napoleon in Spain, France and at Waterloo. The inscription and gift of this album to the Reverend Edward Cole thus might be related to the death of Sir William. Both sons served in the British army: Edmund Hooke Wilson Bellairs (1823-1898) retired as a captain in 1852 and settled in New Zealand where he was appointed a member of the upper house of the country's first parliament. He later moved to Biarritz, France, where he was Vice-Consul. Major-General William Bellairs (1823-1913) had a distinguished military career, serving in the Crimea, the West Indies, Canada, Gibraltar, and South Africa.
