Edward Boudier was the second child of Rev. John Boudier vicar of St Mary's Warwick and Marianne nee Rooke. He joined the East India Company Army in January 1836, serving in the Madras Army. He also served in the Crimean War (where his brother was an Army chaplain) and the Indian Mutiny. After the establishment of the British Raj in 1858, he continued as an officer in the Indian Army, still based in Madras. He retired to Torquay in 1881 with the rank of Lieutenant General. He married Emily Maria Waller, daughter of Harry Edmund Waller of Farmington in 1862, whose photograph by Silvy is also in the NPG collection. Their youngest child Harry Edmund emigrated to the United States in 1891 on the death of General Boudier and bought a farm in California.

Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
