Hi
I 'googled' General Edward Charles Frome and found a '1868 print Edward Charles Frome & HMS Vigilant' on ebay uk. The price was $20 USD.

Hope this helps

Thanks so much for all these wonderful leads.

It has been very impressive to see this inquiry taking shape. I will pull it all together and put it into my database.

Kind regards
