Guyon Richard Debaufre

Guyon, Richard Debaufre (1813-56), a soldier of fortune, was born at Walcot, near Bath. His father, a commander in the English navy, was of Huguenot descent. In 1831 the son entered the Austrian service, and, marrying the daughter of a Hungarian baron, lived for a time a retired country life. He did good service in the revolutionary cause, and, upon the failure of the movement, went to Turkey, where he became a Mussulman and entered the Sultan's service as Kourshid Pasha.

He took part in the Crimean War, and aided in organising the army of Kars.
