He was the eldest son of Sir Henry Berney, of Barton Bendish, Norfolk, by his marriage with Jane Dorothy, daughter of Reverend Andrew Bloxam, rector of Harboroug'h Magna, Rugby. Captain Berney was born October 1866, and educated at Hillside, Godalming, and the United Services College, Westward Ho, from 1880-85.

Captain Berney served in the Ashanti Expedition of 1895-96, receiving the star awarded for that expedition.  On February 18th, 1900, he was the first man to reach the top at the storming of Monte Cristo, where he was shot through the head. He was three times mentioned in despatches by General Sir R Buller, LG, February 8th, 1901, for his gallantry, as having led the assault on Monte Cristo, and was "first man up". Captain Berney left a widow and two sons. His name was inscribed on a tablet erected at the United Services College, Westward Ho, in memory of old pupils who fell in the war.
