|Edward Hovell Thurlow of the Royal Artillery (Depôt Brigade).
Volume 6, page 81, sitting number 7195.
The image that appears in the Silvy daybooks is a variation of the one that appears here. In the daybooks, Thurlow's headgear is on the table next to him and he has both hands resting on the handle of his sword.
In the daybooks and on the Silvy database at the National Portrait Gallery, the sitter is identified as Edward Howell Thurton. However, the same sitter also appears in civilian clothes in an earlier portrait (volume 1, page 185, sitting number 944), only this time his name is given as 'Thurlon Esq.' in the daybooks, and as 'E.H.Thurlow' on the database. The inscription in the album in which this carte-de-visite was found identified him as 'Edward Thurlow' and the previous entry on this page is inscribed E.H.Thurlow in a period hand recto on the mount.
The following is an extract from Sussex in the 20th Century (published 1910):
