Amateur, Andaman Islands
Son of Hatton Hamer Stansfeld. Indian Army 1856-1882. Married Catherine Charlotte, daughter of Sir William Grey, Governor of Bengal.
 
At the 24 February 1863 meeting of the Photographic Society of Bengal,
The Secretary ... submitted a photograph of an Andamanese woman. It had been forwarded to him by Captain Stansfield [sic], who was at Ross Island. Captain Stansfield said that this woman was one of the handsomest specimens they had yet seen. There was at first a great difficulty in getting the woman to stand still for her photograph. He had tried a group two or three times without success. At first they seemed afraid, fancying that he intended to do them harm; but after one or two trials they began to understand what was going to be done, and he managed to get this woman still for five seconds; even then the plate required a high degree of sensitivity[1]
