Manuscript Peninsular War Journal

Manuscript Peninsular War Journal

By [Brooke, Major General William Joseph Eyre]

16pp. 8 inches by 10 inches. Handwritten manuscript. Unbound. Impress mark Bally & Co., Bath. 1808. The De Montalt paper mill was owned by John Bally (1773 – 1854), a bookseller at Homer's Head, 11 Milsom Street in Bath, William Allan or Ellan (1781 – 1832) and George Steart (d.1837), all trading as paper-makers under the name of John Bally & Co. Peninsula War Major William Brooke was captured by French forces at the Battle of Albuera on May 16th 1811. His vivid journal of that time from May 18th to September 28th 1811 was later discovered in the papers of Sir James Stevenson Barnes and published by Charles Oman in Revival: Studies in the Napoleonic Wars, titled A Prisoner of Albuera (1929). Brooke escaped from Seville and returned home to Bath in the autumn of 1811. In 1812, Wellington finally captured Ciudad Rodrigo. He then moved south quickly, besieged the fortress of Badajoz for a month and captured it during one bloody night. He then routed the French at the Battle of Salamanca on 22nd July. William Brooke arrived back in the Peninsula in August 1812 to be appointed by Wellington as officer in charge of courts-martial at Lisbon. This journal is a unique and vivid eye witness account following Wellington's advances. Brooke describes the journey, accompanied by his (un-named) nephew, Assistant Surgeon [James] Harrison and Lieut. Geo Bray. Honourable Capt Josceline Percy of the Hotspur Frigate & Hon Capt Anthony Maitland of The Pique Frigate, Brooke's transport to Lisbon from Portsmouth.

Little is known about Mary Allbeary (also known as Aubury) but what information there is, came originally from the late Sir Robert Mackworth-Young KCVO, Librarian of Windsor Castle Library. "Daughter of Frederick Prince of Wales born of an undisclosed mother. She was married on 25 August 1764 at Fort St George Madras to Henry Brooke (1725-86) and she died 23 years later on 12 August 1787 at Dublin." Early Service: West Indies 1794-1796.
