I believe Reginald Orton made it back to Britain but I don't know whether he achieved his dreams of domestic bliss. If anyone has done more research into his life and can tell me, I too would be interested to know how he spent his final years at home. It seems he did achieve recognition for his medical work. In the 'Medico-Chirurgical Review' for 1 January 1832, available online through Google Books, Orton's work on cholera is described as 'the most systematic and extensive work which we possess on the subject of Indian cholera'. Hopefully the evident importance of his work helped to make the loneliness he endured seem a little more worthwhile.
