Temple was a distinguished and vastly experienced 'Anglo-Indian'. His postings included Secretary to the Punjab Government, Foreign Secretary to the Government of India, Resident of Hyderabad, and Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal. C.E. Buckland's ‘Dictionary of Indian Biography’ (1906), usually silent on all but factual details, states: ‘His activity and energy of mind and body, and the enormous capacity for work which had distinguished him in India were maintained to the last’.
