Charles Beauclerk

Birth: 1813


Lord Charles Beauclerk (October 10, 1813 - November 2, 1861) was a British author and officer in the British army. He commanded soldiers at Saint-Charles during a Canadian revolt which was later documented in his work "Lithographic views of military operations in Canada" (1840).

Charles Beauclerk died on the night of November 2, 1861 while he was trying to help rescue the crew of the Coupland which had beached on rocks near to the Spa

It was a stormy afternoon in 1861 when The Coupland, a schooner from South Shields, got into difficulty trying to enter the harbour when a strong wind crippled its sails. Lord Charles was staying at the Crown Spa Hotel, in Esplanade, when he saw distress rockets launched and he ran down to help with the rescue. Scarborough’s lifeboat Amelia was overwhelmed by huge waves while trying to rescue the crew of the Coupland which was trapped near the Spa.

It cost the lives of lifeboatmen Thomas Brewster and John Burton as well as three bystanders - William Tindall, John Isles and Lord Charles. Lord Charles was hauled ashore by Scarborough-based photographer Oliver Sarony but died of his wounds at the Spa’s music room. He was awarded a rare posthumous silver medal by the RNLI as well as an award from the Board of Trade. Lord Charles was buried in Scarborough’s Dean Road Cemetery by his elder brother, Lord Frederick Beauclerk.
