Footnotes

  • Captain Benjamin Follett retired from the 13th Regiment of Foot (Somerset Light Infantry) in 1790, the year in which he married Ann, the only daughter of Mr J Webb of Kinsale. The couple had two surviving children: the lawyer and politician Sir William Webb Follett (1796-1845) and Brent Spencer Follett QC (1810-1887), politician, barrister and MP.

    A graduate of Trinity College Cambridge, William became a distinguished political figure under the first Peel administration and was duly appointed Attorney-General after the departure of Sir Frederick Pollock in 1844. After William's death from tuberculosis in 1845, a statue after him by William Behnes was erected in Westminster Abbey.

    On 14 October 1848, Brent Follett married Caroline Amelia Skirrow who bore him two sons. Brent sat in the House of Commons between 1852-1857 on behalf of the constituents of Bridgwater and later became Britain's first Chief Land Registrar (1862-1887).
