High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Tomkyns Hilgrove Turner (1766-1843) is best known as the officer who escorted the Rosetta Stone from Egypt to England. He and the Stone were on-board the recently captured French ship HMS Egyptienne when it made its way to England. He claimed that he had personally seized the Stone from General Jacques-Francois Menou and carried it away on a gun carriage. He also asserted that when the French learned of his intentions, that they removed the packaging for the Stone and that "it was thrown upon its face." There are other versions of how the English forces captured the Stone from the French, so it is unknown how reliable his account is.In 1839 his daughter Charlotte Esther Turner married Henry Octavius Coxe, Bodleian librarian.
