Henry Smith

artist

Henry Smith was a Bristol attorney-at-law and amateur artist who was forced to flee the country in 1809 after a duel in which he killed his opponent.

Career

His travels around Scotland and later Spain and Portugal during the Peninsula War (where he served in the army under Wellington) were recorded in a diary (1809–1810) which is today kept at the University of Kansas. He subsequently returned to the United Kingdom for trial, but was discharged without trial.
