Lieutenant John Irving
Third Lieutenant on HMS Terror

John Irving was Third Officer on HMS Terror on Sir John Franklin’s ill-fated Northwest Passage Expedition of 1845-48. A Scot, born in Edinburgh, the son of a lawyer and close friend of Sir Walter Scott, he joined the navy at 15 and soon became an evangelical Christian. Disillusioned, he left the navy in 1836 to emigrate to run a sheep station in Australia, an unsuccessful and short-lived enterprise, he was back in Scotland, and in the navy again, in 1843. After a brief period at Portsmouth in HMS Excellent, he was selected for Arctic service and joined Captain Crozier’s HMS Terror.

John Irving’s grave was discovered at a place now known as Camp Crozier by Lieutenant Frederick Schwatka’s American search expedition in June 1879, the remains identifiable by the presence of a silver medal, engraved ‘Second Mathematical Prize, Royal Naval College. Awarded to John Irving Mid-summer. 1830’, lying nearby. Schwatka and his party gathered Irving’s bones (unique amongst the skeletal remains of Crozier’s men during the last 150 years, in being positively identifiable), for reburial in Scotland and built a cairn on the spot. On 7 January 1881, some 33 years after his death at the age of 33, John Irving was accorded an elaborate public funeral and was re-interred in Dean Cemetery, Edinburgh.

From the arrival of the last letter from Upernavik, dated 10 July 1845, until the discovery of his skeleton in 1879, Irving’s fate had remained unknown. “By the location of the grave and other indications, it has been conjectured that in 1848 he bravely led a return group back to where the ships had been abandoned, possibly to fetch supplies that had been left at ‘Crozier’s Camp’. Having reached the camp, Irving succumbed, the cause of death almost certainly being starvation induced by the advanced stages of scurvy. … Some of his men were still fit enough to wrap the body in canvas, in the style of a burial at sea, as described when found by Schwatka’s party. So far as their remaining strength and the permafrost would allow, they were able to dig a shallow grave. A simple Christian burial service was certainly performed, and the medal was interred with the body.”
