  • Notes 
    • Early Life
      Harry or Henry1 was born on the 11th of November 1794 in Futtehgurh, Farrukhabad in India, the second child and first son of Harry Nisbet and Anne Harriet (nee Curtis-Hayward).

      Career
      Harry was a solicitor, most likely based in London.

      Family Life
      Harry married Louisa Margaret Kelso Bruce, only daughter of the Rev. Courtenay Boyle Brice [sic] and Margaret Augusta (nee Kelso) on the 20th of April 1858 at Chippenham in Wiltshire. See her profile for more details on their children.

      In December 1889, Harry got himself into (very minor) trouble with the law2:
      An Unmuzzled Dog. - Mr Harry Curtis Nisbet, of the Manor House, Sidcup Park, was summoned before the Bromley Magistrates on Monday, and fined 10s. and the costs 10s., for allowing a dog belonging to him to be at large without having a muzzle on.


      Death
      Harry died on the 18th of July 1807 at his home, the Old House, Wimbledon. His will was unremarkable, naming his wife Louisa as Executor, along with his son Harry Bruce and business partner Samuel John Daw. He gave £500 to Louisa, along with his wines and other consumable stores and provisions.

      Footnotes
      [1] There is some equivocation on first name. His baptism certificate (British India Office of Births & Baptisms) has him down as Henry (in contrast to his father Harry). He's also referred to as Henry in the 1851 census, but by the time of his marriage in 1858 he is going by Harry.
