Footnotes

  • Algernon Frederick Webb, born 13th May 1865, was the son of Colonel The Honourable William Frederick Webb DL, Sheriff of Nottinghamshire 1865, who had married Emilia Jane Goodlake, a grandaughter of the second Duke of Leinster, in 1856. He had purchased Newstead Abbey and Estate in 1860, taking up residence in 1861. The Estate was formally the ancestral home of the Byron Family, which Lord Byron sold in 1817.

    The Webb family originated from Odstock, Wiltshire, and also had extensive estates at Cowton in the North Riding of Yorkshire. They had connections through marriage to important Landed Families. William Frederick Webb was a friend of the explorer, Dr David Livingstone.

    Algernon Frederick Webb took his own life whilst at Cambridge on the 17th April 1884.
