Mrs Wilbraham Lennox and child

Mrs Wilbraham Lennox and child

Born Mary Harriet Harrison, the daughter of Robert Harrison of Plâs Clough, Denbighshire [Wales], she married Wilbraham Oates Lennox V.C. (later General Sir Wilbraham Oates Lennox V.C.) on 16 July 1861. She died on 22 July 1863.

Her father appears on the 1861 census living at Henllan in Denbighshire. He described himself as ‘Gentleman.’ At the time of the 1851 census, he and his wife were living at Sculcoates in Yorkshire. He gave ‘JP, East Riding Yorks., Banker’ as his profession. On both nights his daughter Mary was elsewhere, so her date of birth is not known.

The baby seen here is Gerald Wilbraham Stuart Lennox, born on 29 April 1862. On 22 October 1907 he married Agnes Gordon Tidy, daughter of Lieut. Col. Francis John Tidy. He died on 14 June 1937, without issue.

Photographed by Camille Silvy on 13 July 1862.
