17661822
a British soldier and memoirist. He was held captive by Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan for 10 years (1780–1790) at Seringapatam. He had been kept as a prisoner, first at Bangalore and then moved to the Seringapatnam ( modern day name is Srirangapatnam) fort. After his escape from Tipu's army, in Chitradurg (called Chitterdroog) he reached an English camp. He prepared a narrative of his captivity in 1794, but it was not published until 1824, after his death. In 1780, when Scurry was 14 years old, he set on a voyage from Plymouth Sound on the Hannibal.
