Henry Walter

1834 - 1892


Henry Walter 
Bellew
, At his death he left 2 daughters and a son called Dillon, of the 16th lancers. Dr. Henry Walter Bellew, a surgeon in the Bengal Army wrote the first book by any British on Pashto grammar, 'A Grammar of the Pooshtoo Language'. Priced at Rupees Five, it was published by the Baptist Mission Press-Calcutta in 1854. H.W. Bellew in 1870 had also compiled 'Dictionary of Pukkto Language'. In this dictionary words were traced to their roots in Persian, Arabic and Indian (Sanscrit) languages. "A British doctor Henry Walter Bellew (1834-1892) thought in 1864 that most Pakhtun tribal names were actually Rajput names which had undergone changes over time. This actually gave rise to the theory that Hindus had occupied the region called Afghanistan before the `foreigners' took it over. As civil surgeon in Peshawar Bellew perfected his knowledge of the local languages. He was chief political officer in Kabul during the Second Afghan War. When he retired as India's surgeon-general he was already an authority on oriental languages."
