*Brock, William.  A Biographical Sketch of Sir Henry Havelock, K. C. B.  Abridged ed.  New York, N. Y.: American Tract Society, n.d.

 
Sir Henry Havelock, (1795-1857), was raised in a religious environment in the county of Durham, England.  Obtaining a military commission soon after the Battle of Waterloo, Havelock went to India as a British soldier in 1823.  Havelock served in the First Anglo-Burmese War (182426) and the First Afghan War (183942).  From 1849-1851, Havelock lived in England, and when he returned to India, he was promoted to quartermaster general (1854) and then to adjutant general.  He then served with Sir James Outram's in the Persian expedition.  In 1857, Havelock achieved fame in the Indian Mutiny through his attempts to save Lucknow; for his efforts, Havelock received knighthood.
 
In addition to ministering to his soldiers, offering them religious instruction, and preaching temperance to them (pp. 55-56), other significant events from Havelock's career are recorded in this "biographical sketch" by Brock.  In chapter five, "Fragmentary Memoranda From 1827-1849," several passages about Havelock bear importance for his relation to the Serampore Mission, and the Marshman family in particular: 
"1829. . . .Married at Serampore to Hannah, the third daughter of Dr. Marshman" (p. 48).
"April 4 [1830].  Baptized at Serampore by the Rev. John Mack, having since walked ever with Baptists" (p. 48).
"1832.  Regiment marched to Agra, where the Baptist soldiers rebuilt a chapel, in which there was a pastor and
a considerable congregation, when Havelock revisited it with Sir Hugh Gough in 1843" (p. 50).
"1833.  Passed examination in native languages before Station Committee at Agra, and went down to Calcutta for examination at the college of fort William.  Instruction of the Baptist soldiers blessed with much success" (p. 50).
"1834.  Passed examination in languages at college of Fort William.  Appointed acting-interpreter to Sixteenth Foot, stationed at Cawnpore (p. 51).

Stephen discusses the role that the Serampore Mission had in the Indian renaissance and emancipation of women.  Specific remarks focus on the joint effort of William Carey and Rammohun Roy in the 1829 abolishment of sati (widow burning) by the British Governor General William Bentinck.  Stephen also accounts for Carey's opposition to female infanticide and child marriages.  
 
In addition, Stephen notes the efforts of Joshua and Hannah Marshman in the education of Indian females.  Of Hannah Marshman, Stephen notes "By Hannah's efforts several schools were established for female education.  It enabled the women to achieve to a great extent their development and emancipation" (p. 24).

Martyn was an Anglican missionary to India.  On September 28, 1804, while still in England, he wished to obtain a copy of Carey's Bengali New Testament (p. 119).  On August 30, 1805, Dow's preference of Hinduism to Christianity (p. 232-233) angered Martyn.  He feared being corrupted by association with the East India Company (p. 307).  His description of his entry to the Hooghly River on May 12, 1806 is worthy of quotation: "The flat shores on either side were covered with low wood, and I never saw land near sea, present a less interesting appearance.  I felt the same surprise as I have often done elsewhere in the solitude and apparent desertion of a place much spoken of. I thought to have seen whole fleets of ships, vast numbers of natives on the shores, and appearances of cultivation, but there was nothing of the sort.  A village indeed was seen running in an easterly direction from the shore into the interior, consisting, we heard, of no less than 10, 000 houses; but there seemed to be nothing doing.  Five or six miserable people only were seen cutting down the jungle for firewood (p. 327)."  On May 16, 1806 Martyn "with some difficulty found Carey."  Martyn joined Carey in worship in Bengali "for the advantage of a few servants, who sat, however, perfectly unmoved." (p. 328). Martyn met with Joshua Marshman on a number of occasions.  He heard Marshman lecture on Greek grammar (p. 331); took advice from Marshman on his mission strategy and prospects for the Gospel (pp. 333-334); and watched Marshman dispute with Brahmins (p. 337).  Marshman wished that Martyn would study Hindustani so that he could assume direction of the Serampore Mission if Carey and Marshman should die (p. 338).  Martyn was concerned, however, that Marshman spoke with contempt of the Brahmins (p. 344).  Martyn died on October 16, 1812 while in the eastern Mediterranean region.
