Description

When Stamford Raffles married the handsome, elegant Sophia Hull in February 1817 and a year later welcomed the arrival of his first child, Charlotte, family life looked to be full of happiness. His earlier marriage, to Olivia Mariamne Devenish, a widow nearly ten years older than him, had ended with her untimely death in Java, leaving him bereft of all that I held dear on earth . Now, settled in Bencoolen as Governor-General, he watched with satisfaction over the growth of Singapore and the increase of his young family. For all these joys, however, he was also to find that in this most wretched place, death was never far away. Drawing on a wide range of sources including new findings from birth records, marriage registers, letters and wills historian John Bastin makes an invaluable contribution to what is known about the members of Sir Stamford Raffles s family. Rigorously researched and engagingly written, this new book is a superb account of Raffles s ancestry, immediate family and closest relations and how they intertwined with each step of his celebrated career."
