9 "He was firste employed by the Ordnance Board as a draftsman in the Tower in 1725, where he helped to train the nexyt generation of military draftsmen, such as the Durnfords, Andrew Frazer and William Twiss." [Skempton, Sir Alec & Chrimes, Mike. A Biographical Dictionary of Chivil Enginners in Great Britian and Ireland.]

Portsmouth; 1836 Major-Gen; 1840 Lieut-Gen; 1846-50 Honorary Colonel Commandant of RE.

A paper by him, entitled "Scenes in an officer's early life, describe the hard services in which he stated on that expedition, is in the United Service Journal for August 1850 pg. 605-614. Speaking of his ancestors, he states that he has "traced them for 1590 in regular succession to the present time", 1850. The pedigree unfortunately, if ever committed to writing, does not seem to be forthcoming. In an expedition to the West Indies under Sir Charles Grey, he served at the siege of Martinique and the capture of St. Lucia and Guadeloupe. Was taken prisoner 1794 by the French under Victor Hughes at Point a Pitre. His subsequent service were passed in conducting engineering work at Chatham, Woolrich, Portsmouth, and in Ireland; then for many years he was the chief engineer at Newfoundland, later at Quebec and lastly at Portsmouth. (Title: 19th Century British Magazine "Notes and Queries" www.rootsweb.com/~bmuwgw/notesandqueries.htm)

Ballina Chronicle, Ballina, Mayo, Ireland: Lieut.-General Sir Stephen R. Chapman appointed Colonel Commandant of the Royal Engineers, vice Lt. General Durnford, deceased.

Durnford returned to England in 1831 and retired in 1837. In 1846 he was made a Colonel Commandant in the Royal Engineers and Lieutenant-General in the Army. He has been characterized as a hard worker, rising early and inspecting construction sites before breakfast, then working in his office each day until ate in the evening. Various contemporary authors have indicated that he regularly won the esteem of his colleagues and superiors through his honesty and strong professional principles. He had married Jane Sophia Mann in October 1798 and they had thirteen children. The six sons each became officers in the British Army and two, Elias and Viney joined the Royal Engineers [A Biography of Civil Engineers in Great Britain and Ireland; Skempton & Chimes]
