Footnotes

  • Charles Neville was the illegitimate son of Edmund Rolfe (1738-1817) of Heacham Hall, Norfolk, and Julia de Martino of Lausanne, Switzerland. He was born at Villanuova, Italy in 1760. In 1783, Neville married Anne Colden Williamson (1763-1798) and the couple had a son, Rev. Strickland Charles Edward Neville-Rolfe (1789-1852) and a daughter, Anne (1787-1859). Two years after his wife's death, Neville married Jane Ruddle and the couple had no issue.

    Neville was commissioned as a 1st Lieutenant in the Royal Artillery in 1779 and by 1794 promoted to Captain. He continued to progress through the ranks of the army, eventually becoming Lieutenant-General in 1825. He died at Whitton, near Hounslow on 10 January 1837.
