Obituary in the Times newspaper
7 July 1887Admiral Sir Henry Mangles Denham, whose death, is announced as having happened early in the present week, was one of the oldest officers in the service, having been born in the year 1800. He was a son of the late Mr. Henry Denham, of Sherborne, Dorsetshire. He received in 1867 the honour of knighthood in recognition of his hydrographical services and maritime explorations in both hemispheres, and production of charts which at various intervals and dates since 1822 have elicited the thanks of successive Lords of the Admiralty, together with enrolment and complimentary recognitions on the part of institutions at home and abroad identified with coasting and oceanic navigation. He was promoted to the rank of Admiral on the retired list in 1877, and he was also an Elder Brother of the Trinity House. Sir Henry M. Denham married, in 1826, Isabella, daughter of the late Rev. Joseph Cole, of Carmarthen, and was left a widower in 1865.
