Henry Scott Tuke ( 1858 - 1929)
Henry Scott Tuke was born to Quaker parents Maria Strickney and Daniel Hack Tuke, a medical doctor who specialised in psychiatry. The family moved from York to Falmouth in 1859 where Daniel Tuke set up a doctor’s practice. Henry’s sister and biographer, Maria Tuke Sainsbury, recalls their growing up in Falmouth as a happy, healthy one, with long summer days by the sea; memories that clearly had a lasting effect on Henry.
