Biographies

An Irishman who spent time in Tasmania on a posting to Australia with the British Army.

sketcher, was born in County Mayo, Ireland. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, he became an officer in the British Army and was posted to Australia in 1853, stationed in Tasmania. During the posting, he purchased land at Wyvenhoe, near Burnie in northeast Tasmania. Said to have been fond of sketching, he had a number of his Tasmanian sketches worked into engravings after he returned to England in 1855 to be illustrations in a reprint of his book, A Year in Tasmania, 1853-54 (Hobart, 1854). An engraving of his Wyvenhoe property appears as a title-page vignette in the London version, Henry Butler Stoney, A Residence in Tasmania, with a descriptive tour through the island… London, 1856. The oil landscape painting, Wyvenhoe, Tasmania , he commissioned from the Irish artist John Day, dated 1856, may have been copied from the engraving.
