Footnotes

Colonel Charles Waring Darwin was a British solider and landowner. A second cousin once removed of naturalist Charles Darwin, his father changed the family name from Rhodes to Darwin in 1850 in order to inherit Elston Hall from his brother in law.

Darwin entered the British Army in 1873. By the time he left service he had seen active service in the Second Boer War, where he was awarded the service medal with 3 clasps.
