History[edit]

  • Sir Henry Chamberlain, 1st Baronet (1773 – 31 July 1829)
  • Sir Henry Chamberlain, 2nd Baronet (2 October 1796 – 8 September 1843). Chamberlain was an officer in the Royal Artillery, and the eldest son and heir of Sir Henry Chamberlain, 1st Baronet, by his first spouse Elizabeth Harrod. Young Chamberlain painted a series of views and costumes of the city and neighbourhood of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The University of Oxford Centre for Brazilian Studies [1] has an album of drawings by Lieutenant Chamberlain, Royal Artillery, done during the years 1819 and 1820, with descriptive explanations (London, 1822). His watercolours formed the basis of this famous album of 36 lithographs. Each picture is accompanied by a detailed explanation of the particular subject. Chamberlain is described as the son of the British consul-general in Rio, who visited Brazil in 1819–20 at the age of 23. Chamberlain married on 11 May 1826, Harriet (d. 30 April 1866) daughter of J. Mullen, Lieutenant-Colonel of the 1st Royal Regiment of Foot. They had issue, including their son and heir Sir Henry Orlando Robert Chamberlain, 3rd Baronet.
