Brendon Grimshaw was born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, in 1925 and had a career in the newspaper business until he retired on Moyenne Island in the Seychelles. Brendon bought the island in 1962 for just £8000 and lived there from 1972 until his death in 2012. He published a book about his experience in restoring the island, which had become heavily overgrown, including re-establishing a population of 120 giant tortoises.
