no title. n.p., 1882. A four-page disbound leaflet labelled Private describing the shipwreck of the Severn, R.Y.S. on Marsteinsbåen, near Marstein Island and lighthouse, off the coast of West Norway just south of Bergen.

Janson, and by Albert Brassey in the Czarina, R.Y.S., who arrived at the scene on 13th. July.

Henry Moreton inherited the Earl of Ducie title in 1853 on the death of his father. The Ducie’s main estate is at Tourtworth Court, Gloucestershire, England, where designs for lodges and a prospect tower were made for the 3rd Earl by Sir John Soane in 1896. The 3rd Earl was “Captain” of the Yeoman of the Guard (Queen Victoria’s bodyguard regiment) from 28th June 1859 to 10th July 1866. He served on several Parliamentary Commissions. He spoke Norwegian, and translated into English J.A. Friis’ Laila (Laila; or Sketches from Finmarken) in 1883 (published in London by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge), and Alexander L. Kielland’s Skipper Worse in 1885 (published in London by S. Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington). He is buried at St. Leonard’s church, Tortworth, Gloucestershire.
