About Author

Sir William Cornwallis Harris

Major Sir William Cornwallis Harris was an English military engineer, artist, and hunter. He was the fourteen-year-old son of James Harris of Wittersham, Kent, and enrolled in Addiscombe Military Seminary. Two years later, in December 1823, he joined the East India Company's army as a second lieutenant in the Bombay Establishment of Engineers. Over the next thirteen years, he was deployed to several locations in India, allowing him to pursue his interests in outdoor sports and wildlife photography. He was promoted to first lieutenant in 1824, then captain ten years later. Harris landed in Cape Town in June 1836 on the 1467-ton Buckinghamshire, where he spent two years recovering from a fever. He was lucky to meet Dr. Andrew Smith, who had just returned from a voyage north where he had seen Mzilikazi in Mosega. From the Cape, he planned a hunting excursion to the Western Transvaal and Magaliesberg with William Richardson of the Bombay Civil Service, who had joined him on the voyage.
