Sir Thomas Barrett-Lennard, 2nd baronet
The following is extracted from "The Emperor of the United States of America and Other
Magnificent British Eccentrics" by Catherine Caufield (Routledge & Kegan Paul, London 1981)
It is not uncommon for a country squire of ancient lineage to have his own family cemetery,
but in Sir Thomas Barrett-Leonard's neatly laid out burial grounds at Belhus in Essex, the
plots were reserved exclusively for animals. Funeral services for the dogs, cats and horses
who made up a major part of Sir Thomas' entourage were conducted by the vicar of nearby
Aveley. A footman bearing aloft a miniature coffin, led Sir Thomas in a long white gown, and
the vicar to the graveside for the solemn rites.
Sir Thomas' love of animals was not restricted to pets. Workers on the estate were under 
orders to keep a fresh bowl of water in the corn rick for the rats, and it was strictly
forbidden to harm any members of Belhus' thriving rodent population. If a rat had to be
disturbed at all, it was put in a sack, taken to the edge of the woods and there released.
Unlike many an animal lover, Sir Thomas was kind to humans as well. Rather than disturb his
butler, he often answered the door himself, with the result that many visitors to Belhus
were initially shocked to find themselves admitted to so fine a house by so shabby an
attendant. As the years passed Sir Thomas' interest in his appearance declined, and on
several occasions he received tips from strangers on the estate who mistook him for a
gatekeeper. There were, however, more awkward moments. In 1900 Sir Thomas was the
chairman of the Essex Asylum Committee and while returning from a meeting at a local
institution one evening, he decided to take a short cut through some woods and fields.
He was stopped by a policeman who found his appearance and presence in the area
suspicious. 'Where are you going?' the policeman demanded. 'To Belhus.' 'And where have
you come from?'  'Brentwood Lunatic Asylum.'  'Knew it!' cried the policeman and the
'escaped patient' was handcuffed and transported back to the Asylum. Finally, after much
discussion, the policeman was persuaded of his error and Sir Thomas was allowed to return
to his study where he could once again indulge in his hobbies of constructing riddles in
Latin and translating nonsense poems into classical Greek.
Sir Francis Laurence John Barrow, 4th baronet
Sir Francis appears to have disappeared from the public's view at some point around 1912,
and his whereabouts were apparently unknown to his family. 
On 14 January 1931, the British Broadcasting Corporation included an item in its 
transmission, the wording of which was "Will Sir Francis Barrow, baronet, who was last 
heard of 18 years ago and whose present whereabouts are unknown, go at once to Cromer 
House, Hampton Road, Teddington, where his son, Wilfred J. W. C. Barrow is dangerously ill."
On 21 April 1932, up bobbed Sir Francis, when he appeared at the Registry Office in order
to marry, as his second wife, Edith Townsend. Sir Francis is quoted as saying that he had 
renounced the use of his title 20 years earlier and had been living in England during the
whole period of his disappearance.
No doubt the timing behind his re-emergence in April 1932 in order to re-marry was dictated
by the death of his first wife in February 1932. The following article, which appeared in the
Darwin 'Northern Territory Times' on 22 April 1932, is of interest:-
'Nineteen years of unfulfilled hope for the return of her vanished husband were ended by
the death of Lady Barrow, wife of Sir Francis Barrow, at her home at Ravenscourt Park,
Hammersmith, W.
'Sir Francis, a baronet, and descendant of the Sir John Barrow who in the 18th century was
for many years Secretary to the Admiralty, and founder of the Royal Geographical Society,
left his home 19 years ago, and has never been heard of again.
'Sir Francis was born in 1862 and married in 1890.
'Lady Barrow always hoped that one day he would communicate with his family. "I feel
convinced that he is alive and in England," she used to say. "Something tells me that he
will come back."
'In January 1931, when her son, Mr. William John Wilson Croker Barrow, was seriously ill at
his home at Teddington, Middlesex, an S.O.S. was broadcast asking Sir Francis, last heard of
18 years ago, and whose whereabouts are unknown, to go to him. There was no response,
but a few days after the broadcast it was said that a man strongly resembling Sir Francis
had denied his identity to people who approached him.'
Sir Herbert Henry Bartlett, 1st baronet and his son, Hardington Arthur Bartlett
Michael De-la-Noy, in his book "The Honours System" (Allison & Busby, London, 1985), when
discussing the future of the baronetage, states that "At least two baronets in recent times 
have gone missing, Sir Herbert Bartlett, in 1921, in best Agatha Christie style, by vanishing 
overnight during a crossing from Dover to Ostend......."
However, this was not the case at all, and the purpose of this note, therefore, is to correct
this error. It was Sir Herbert's son and heir who disappeared in this manner in 1920, rather 
than 1921, as is shown in the following report which appeared in 'The Times' on 20 January 
1920:-
'Mr. Hardington Bartlett, the son and heir of Sir Herbert H. Bartlett, Bt., at one time chairman
of the firm of Perry and Co., contractors, was, it is feared, swept overboard from the Belgian
steamer, Pieter de Coninck, on Sunday week [11 January 1920] and drowned.
'It was known that Mr. Bartlett left Dover in the Pieter de Coninck. He was seen on board by 
several friends and was talking to one a few moments before the vessel was swept by a
gigantic wave. From that time nothing has been heard of him. On Tuesday last a messenger
arrived from Belgium to ask whether he had sailed as he was not on board the Pieter de
Coninck when it reached Ostend. Mrs. Hardington Bartlett, her son, and Mr. Norman Bartlett, a
brother, immediately left for Ostend. They returned on Friday after making every inquiry 
possible.
A further report in 'The Times' on 16 March 1920 states that:-
 
'Presumption of Death in the Estate of Hardington Arthur Bartlett, presumed deceased (before
the Rt. Hon. Sir Henry Duke, President [of the Probate, Divorce and Admiralty Division]) -
'This was a motion by Mrs. Irene Bartlett for leave to swear that the death of her husband, Mr.
Hardington Arthur Bartlett, occurred on or since January 11, 1920.
Mr. Bartlett, who was the eldest surviving son of Sir Herbert Henry Bartlett, Bt., and was
managing director of Messrs. Perry and Co., of Victoria-street, was washed overboard from the
Belgian packet boat S.S. Pieter de Coninck on that date.
'Mr. Glazebrook said that on January 11 last Mr. Bartlett embarked at Dover in the S.S. Pieter
de Coninck, bound for Ostend, with the object of going to Brussels on business in connexion
with certain reconstruction schemes which his firm had arranged to carry out. While on the
voyage the vessel encountered sever weather, and was swept by a heavy sea. Mr. Bartlett 
and a number of other passengers were swept overboard.
'Mr. Glazebrook read the affidavit of Mr. Abraham Lazarus Freeman, another passenger. He said:
     "When about halfway across to Ostend the vessel was struck by a very heavy sea, which
     appeared to envelop it. It seemed for some seconds that the vessel was submerged under a
     raging sea, and that I was being swept away with everything movable on deck. I found as 
     the vessel righted herself that I had been caught, as were a few other passengers, by the
     bulwarks round the vessel's side. A short time before the occurrence I saw Mr. Bartlett
     going towards the bows of the vessel, and I am convinced that when the vessel was struck
     and heeled over he had not the least possible chance to escape from being swept 
     overboard into the sea."
'The President granted leave to the applicant to swear that Mr. Bartlett died on January 11 
last.'
The Beckwith baronetcy created in 1681
Sir Roger Beckwith, the first baronet, shot himself in December 1700, and was succeeded by
his oldest surviving son, another Sir Roger Beckwith. The 1st baronet's eldest son, Arthur, is
said to have died shortly before his father, "beyond the seas." 
In an attempt to discover news of Arthur Beckwith, the following notice appeared in 'The
London Gazette' of 16 January 1701:-
'Whereas Sir Roger Beckwith, of Aldborough in Yorkshire, Baronet, lately deceased, hath left
a considerable Estate to his eldest Son, Arthur Beckwith, Esq., who has not been heard of for
several years last past, but as is supposed went to Sea; These are to desire any Person that
can give Information of the said Arthur Beckwith, Esq., whether living or dead, That they would
be pleased to give notice thereof to Sir Wm. Caley, of Brompton in Yorkshire, Bar. or to Francis
Wyvill, in York, Esq., who are appointed Trustees of the said Arthur Beckwith's Estate, that (if
living) he may be acquainted with his Father's Death, and come and take Possession of the
Estate fallen to him.'
No results appear to have been achieved by this notice, since the next son, Sir Roger, 
succeeded to the baronetcy. Like his father before him, the second baronet shot himself in 
May 1743.
