The Clive Museum at Powis
The superb collection of artefacts from India displayed in the Clive Museum is the largest private collection of this type in the UK.
There was considerable local unrest and Clive was authorised by the British government to defeat local uprisings, which he did successfully, amassing huge personal fortune at the same time.
Henrietta Herbert and Edward Clive
Following in his father’s footsteps, Edward was appointed Governor of Madras in 1798. Unusually for that time, Henrietta and their two daughters joined him in India, staying for three years and collecting many Indian artefacts.
