Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Colombo: Photo 20

world pictures Sri Lanka: Colombo

"In memory of Henry Augustus Marshall, Esq., for many years Auditor and Accountant-General of this Island.  He was educated at Harrow and at Charterhouse and at Christ Church, Oxford, and entered the Ceylon Civil Service in 1798, having accompanied the Honourable Fredk. North to the Island, from which time he never returned to Europe.  He was an elegant classical scholar and a sincere Christian.  He died on 23rd January, 1841, in the 64th year of his age.  This table is erected by his widow and two sons as a testimony of their love and respect."

From an obituary: "During the holidays he took a trip to Nuwara Eliya, after which he appeared in excellent health and spirits, but fever soon made its appearance, under which he sank in a few days."  Sir Charles Marshall, Chief Justice, was known as Equity Marshall, so this Henry Marshall acquired the joking nickname "Iniquity Marshall."
