The siblings of Sir Lyonel Felix Carteret Eugene Tollemache, 4th baronet
The first Tollemache baronet of Hanby Hall had a 4th son, the Rev. Hugh Francis Tollemache. He
in turn had a son, the Rev. Ralph William Lyonel Tollemache-Tollemache (19 October 1826-5 
October 1895). The Rev. Ralph married twice; firstly on 15 February 1853 to his cousin, Caroline
Talmash who died 6 June 1867, and, secondly, on 22 February 1869, to Dora Cleopatra Maria
Lorenza de Orellana y Revest. The two marriages produced 14 children, many of whom were
inflicted with eccentric names, seemingly based on variations of the name "Lyonel," as follows:-
The sons of the two marriages were -
1. Lyonel Felix Carteret Eugene (he later succeeded as the 4th baronet)
2. Granville Gray Marchmont Manners Plantagenet (1858-1891)
3. Marchmont Murray Grasett Reginald Stanhope Plantagenet (1860-1898)
4. The names of this son will be discussed later
5. Leo de Orellana (1879-1914)
6. Leone Sextus (presumably because he was the 6th son)  (1884-1917)
7. Lyonulph Cospatrick Bruce Berkeley Jermyn Tullibardine Petersham de Orellana Dysart 
   Plantaganet (1892-1960)
and the daughters -
1. Florence Caroline Artemisia Hume (c late 1850s/early 1860s-1935)
2. Dora Viola  (d in infancy 1874)
3. Mabel Helmingham (1872-1955)
4. Lyonesse Matilda Dora (1874-1944)
5. Lyona Decima Veronica (1878-1962)
6. Lyonella Fredegunda (1882-1952)
7. Lyonetta Edith Valentine 1887-1951)
The birth of the 4th son in 1876 afforded the opportunity for the Rev. Ralph to fully exercise his
imagination. This son was named Lyulph Ydwallo Odin Nestor Egbert Lyonel Toedmag Hugh
Erchenwyne Saxon Esa Cromwell Orma Nevill Dysart Plantagenet Tollemache-Tollemache.
The reader will note that the eldest son shown above was named Lyonel. If you now take the
first letter of each of the 4th son's names, and ignoring the last name of Plantagenet, you will
spell out "Lyonel the Second."
Sir Thomas Ernest Trollope, 11th baronet
Sir Thomas died in a motor accident in September 1927. The following report of the subsequent
inquest into his death appeared in "The Manchester Guardian" of 27 September 1927:-
'A verdict of accidental death was returned yesterday at the inquest on Sir Thomas Ernest
Trollope, who died after a motor accident in Oxford Street. Sir Ernest died in Middlesex Hospital
last Friday.
'A nephew, Thomas Arthur Walter Giffard, a secretary at the Anglo-German Tribunal, said Sir
Ernest was 59 [sic - 69] and a barrister by profession, but did not practice. He was a little hard
of hearing but not deaf.
'A constable said the accident occurred close to a refuge to the west of New Bond street and
Vere street.
'John Percy Sugden, of Brondesbury Park, Willesden, who stated that he was an old friend of
Sir Ernest, and lunched with him last Thursday, said Sir Ernest was healthy and active, so 
active that he was hunting recently. After lunch they went to Bond Street by tube, and then
crossed Oxford Street as Sir Ernest was to see him off by 'bus. Near the refuge a motor came
along and knocked them both down. The witness had a narrow escape, and thought he caught
hold of the radiator of the motor to save himself.
'The Coroner: Where were you lying when the motor stopped? - Under the front of it between
the wheels. Sir Ernest was lying on his back. He had been carried to the refuge. He was semi-
conscious.
'Did you look well to your right when you stepped off the kerb? - I think so. We were walking 
arm in arm.
'Ernest Henry Knight, a motor-driver, said he was driving a van eastwards towards Regent
Street and had nearly reached Vere Street when Sir Ernest and Mr. Sugden stepped off the
refuge.
'The Coroner: How far were you from them? - I should say about a yard. You had not noticed
them standing on the refuge? - No. What did you do when they stepped off? - I jammed on
my foot brake and hand brake and pulled up. 
'Knight said he was in low gear, travelling about six miles an hour. The van hit Mr. Sugden, who
was arm in arm with Sir Ernest. They both went down, and Sir Ernest hit his head on the 
ground. The van did not run over either of them.
'The jury returned a verdict of accidental death and exonerated the driver from blame.'
Sir George Tuite, 7th baronet
Sir George was murdered by two intruders in his house in February 1783. The following 
newspaper reports are relevant:-
'Whitehall Evening Post' of  8 March 1783:-
'Dublin, 1 March. We hear from Westmeath that, last Saturday night some villains broke into
the house of Sir George Tuite, Bart., in that county, and fractured his skull with a hammer, and
he instantly expired.' [Other contemporary reports state that Sir George was shot through the
head].
'Whitehall Evening Post' of  15 March 1783, which seems to imply that Sir George was not a
model landlord:-
'The week before last a murder of a very uncommon kind was perpetrated on the body of Sir
George Tuite, Bart. at his seat of Connan, in the county of Westmeath, in Ireland. As Sir 
George was sitting at his parlour fire with a favourite dog at his feet, some men burst into
his room and murdered him; the dog making some noise, they killed him, and decamped
without plundering the house; so that it evidently appeared they had no purpose in view but
the murder of Sir George. What is singular, there was no noise made in the country, very 
little lamentation, and less search. Though no man can approve of even justice executed so
summarily, yet such events ought to be a warning for rich men not to oppress their poor
tenants, nor act with tyranny in the district where they live.'
Sir Robert Fraser Turing, 8th baronet
By the early years of the 20th century, there were so many bogus baronets floating around 
that moves were made to prevent the assumption of the title of 'baronet' by persons who
had no right to the title, and to safeguard the status of those who were entitled to the
title. After a lengthy enquiry into the matter by a Departmental Committee of the Home Office,
whose report was published as a Parliamentary Paper [Cd. 3445] in 1907, new regulations 
were promulgated by a Royal Warrant dated 8 February 1910. 
In essence, this Warrant established an official roll of baronets. Unless a baronet's name was
included on this roll, the person claiming the title of baronet was not considered to be a 
baronet, and would not be treated as such. Where any difficulties arose as to the validity of
claims, the matter was to be referred to the Privy Council.
One of the earliest claims to be heard by the Privy Council was that of Sir Robert Fraser 
Turing, who petitioned for inclusion on the official roll. His case was heard on 1 July 1912.
His case was that he was the head of the ancient family of Turing, and heir male of Sir John
Turing, who had been created a baronet in 1638. As was the case with many Scottish
baronetcies, the original patent was not now known to exist, and it not appear to have been
recorded in the public registers of the time.
In 1878, Sir Robert had sought advice on this matter, with the result that the then Lord
Advocate (William Watson) gave the opinion that "having examined the papers relative to the
Turing Baronetcy submitted to us on behalf of Sir Robert Turing, we are of opinion that the 
evidence adduced is sufficient to establish the fact of the creation of the baronetcy and that
Sir Robert Turing has right to enjoy the title."
Sir Robert also applied to Lyon King of Arms for formal recognition as a baronet, such petition
being granted in December 1882. As a result, the Committee agreed that it would advise his
Majesty that the name of Sir Robert Fraser Turing should be entered on the official roll of
baronets.
The Twisden baronetcy [created 1666]
In June and July 1909, the Probate and Divorce Division heard a claim made under the 
Legitimacy Declaration Act of 1858, the outcome of which would determine whether the
baronetcy of Twisden had become extinct.
The following edited report is taken from the Wellington, New Zealand 'Evening Post' of 4 
August 1909:-
'An interesting case, involving a claim to the Twisden baronetcy came this week [the report
is dated 25 June 1909] before Mr. Justice Bargrave Deane in the Probate and Divorce Division,
under the Legitimacy Declaration Act…….
'…..the petitioner, Mary Henrietta Twisden, said she sought a declaration under the Legitimacy
Declaration Act that her father and grandfather were legitimate. The facts of the case…….
would turn upon the question of whether a certain Lieutenant Twisden, R.N., was married to 
a Miss Mary Kirk in or about the year 1762. The decision of the case would not affect any 
question of property, real or personal, but the right to the Twisden baronetcy did turn upon
his lordship's decision. If that decision were in favour of the petition, it would entitle a certain
gentleman to the baronetcy, whereas if it were unfavourable the baronetcy would become
extinct, and no one would be benefitted.
'Counsel handed in a rough pedigree, and traced the descent of the petitioner. In 1705, he
said, there was born Sir Roger Twisden, fifth baronet. He had six children, including four sons,
one of whom was named William. Sir Roger died in 1772, his son William becoming a lieutenant
in the Navy, and petitioner asserted that he married Mary Kirk between 1762 and 1765.
Lieutenant Twisden's son, John T. Twisden, married one Ann Hammond, and the petitioner was
the lawful issue of this couple. Counsel directed attention to the fact that Lieutenant Twisden
and Mary Kirk lied together as man and wife at Leyton, and he urged that they were married, 
as contended. Shortly after, Lieutenant Twisden was invalided from the Navy, and was nursed
at Mary's mother's house at Portsea. Two sons were born and died in infancy, but in October,
1767, the son John (described by counsel as John No. 2) was born and baptised at Portsea. 
Lieut. Twisden made a note in a book that had been preserved, referring to Mary as his wife. 
Mary Kirk, who died when she was 27 years of age, was described in her burial certificate as
Mary Twisden, and was buried at the Independent Chapel, White-street, Southwark. Lieut.
Twisden's son Thomas was born on 7th July, 1769, and there was a material entry on 11th
August, 1769: "Churching 1s." Counsel submitted that this was very strong evidence of the
legitimacy of the child.
'Later she wrote to Lieut. Twisden, and in this letter she observed "Pray take care of the
children, and Tom, whom you must feed in the night before he wakes." (Loud laughter.) In
December, 1771, Lieut. William Twisden died. The following February his father, Sir Roger, 
made a will re-settling the whole of his estates, excluding the issue of the lieutenant. Sir
Roger died a month later, and John Papillion succeeded to the title. He provided for the 
education of the late Lieutenant William's son John, and the petitioner's case was that John
Papillion Twisden had no right to assume the title, and that he knew this subsequently when
he did what he could for the late lieutenant's son short of giving up the baronetcy. Under "Sir"
John Papillion Twisden's will there was a bequest to "John Twisden, natural son of William
Twisden," a similar description being applied to him in a subsequent marriage settlement by 
"Sir" John Papillion's son. Those two documents, said Mr. Rawlinson [petitioner's counsel],
contained the only suggestion that "John No. 2" was not the lawful son of Lieutenant William
Twisden and Mary Kirk. The family seat, added Mr. Rawlinson, was at Malling, Kent. Counsel
mentioned that the claimant of the succession to the baronetcy was the Rev. John Francis
Twisden, whose son, John Ramskill Twisden, was undertaking the matter for him.
'Mr. John Ramskill Twisden gave evidence. He was a solicitor, he said, acting for the petitioner.
His father (the claimant of the title) was her guardian ad litem [i.e. a person appointed by a 
court to take legal action on behalf of a minor or an adult not able to handle his or her own
affairs]. The petitioner was now 95 years of age, and the Rev. J.P. Twisden was living at 
Bradbourne Park, Malling, Kent. Witness said he remembered a great aunt of his remarking that
the reason her father would not use the title was because he considered himself to be too 
poor. She also told him her father was very much upset at reading Thackeray's novel 
"Esmond,"  because there was a likeness between the hero and himself. (Laughter.)
'Counsel read a letter from Lieutenant Twisden to one of his brothers. His "wife" had just
died, and the lieutenant asked for a more liberal allowance. A passage from the letter read by
Mr. Pilcher, cross-examining, was as follows:-
     "Two hours before her death she cut out the children's mourning and desired me to wear
     a decent suit of mourning, and after a decent time to put up a plain piece of stone on 
     her grave. I will starve in a ditch or die in a gaol rather than neglect to comply with her 
     requests…….Though she's dead, she's happy, as certain as I am alive and miserable."
'Mr. Rawlinson added that it was hardly likely that Captain John would have erected the
following tablets in the church, saying:-
    "Sacred to the memory of William Twisden second son of Sir Roger Twisden……and of Mary,
    wife of William Twisden….and of their children, who died in infancy."
'Counsel asked the court to find that Lieutenant William and Mary Kirk were married on or
about 1762-3, and that their children were legitimate. As to the marriage of the son, Captain
John, there was no dispute.
'His Lordship intimated that he would consider his judgment.
'Mr. Rawlinson mentioned that the petitioner, who was a very old lady, was the only living
person in a position by law to bring an action for the declaration of the legitimacy of her
father and grandfather. In the circumstances, would his Lordship give his decision at an early
date, or, perhaps, having made up his mind, would the learned judge make a note of his
decision, and place it in a sealed envelope?
'His Lordship (smiling) said he had already formed a very strong opinion on the case, but on
consideration he might change his mind. Judgment was, therefore, reserved.'
On 19 August 1909, the 'Evening Post' followed up on their earlier report:-
'One of the most romantic cases which has occupied the attention of the public for a long
time has just been decided in the Probate Court. Miss Emily [Mary?] Henrietta Twisden, an
old lady of 95, asked for a declaration that her grandfather, Lieutenant William Twisden, R.N.,
was lawfully married to Mary Kirk about 1762-3, and that, therefore, their son, her father,
Captain John Twisden, R.N., who died in 1853, was legitimate. The Lieutenant, who had 
quarrelled with his family, was wounded on active service and invalided home. He was nursed
back to health by Mary Kirk, the daughter of a petty officer, whom he married. His family,
however, denied the marriage, and the succession went to a younger son, a branch of the 
family which has since died out. The proceedings were taken under the Legitimacy Act of
1858, the petitioner being the last surviving grandchild and the only one entitled to sue. 
Judgment was given in favour of the petitioner, and accordingly her nephew, the Rev. John
Francis Twisden, with whom she lives at Bradbourne, Kent, becomes the heir to the Twisden
baronetcy.'
In Cokayne's "Complete Baronetage," which was published just a few years prior to the 1909
hearings, the baronetcy is shown, on the death of the 6th baronet, as having been 'inherited'
by his younger brother, 'Sir' John Papillon Twisden (c 1745-10 Feb 1810). On his death, the
baronetcy went to his only son and heir, 'Sir' John Twisden (June 1785-1 Jan 1841) on whose
death the baronetcy is shown as becoming extinct. The Twisden baronetcy does not appear
in any peerage reference work published between 1841 and 1909 that I can discover, but 
after the decision in the 1909 case, the baronetcy re-appeared in reference works, re-written
so as to take into account the effects of such decision.
The baronetcy of Tyrrell of Thornton created in 1627
Although the standard baronetage reference works state that the Tyrrell baronetcy became
extinct on the death of the 7th baronet in 1749, it appears that a claim for the baronetcy was
at least contemplated in 1904. The following article appeared in "The Burrowa News" of 21
October 1904. Burrowa, now spelled Boorowa, is a small country town in New South Wales,
about 250 km west of Sydney.
'A Burton-on-Trent cabman named Benjamin Tyrell claims the extinct baronetcy of the Tyrells,
formerly of Thornton Hall, Buckinghamshire. He also claims the ownership of the Thornton Hall
estates, which are nearly five miles square, and the Crakemarsh Hall estates, near Uttoxeter,
Staffs. Tyrrel, who some years ago lost a leg by being run over, has a family of ten. Having
obtained assistance, he now proposes to move for an order in chancery compelling the 
disclosure of certain documents alleged to be in the possession of the Cavendish family. 
Tyrell's claim to the immense estate rests on his contention that he is a direct descendant from
John Tyrell, third son of Sir Thomas Tyrell. According to Tyrell, Sir Thomas, who died in 1705,
left six sons and four daughters. The eldest son, Sir Henry, died three years later, leaving three
sons and two daughters. His eldest and second sons died bachelors, the third son, Charles,
entering into the estates. He in turn left an only daughter, the male line of the first son of
Sir Thomas thus failing. The daughter married Dr. Cotton, of Crakemarsh Hall, and conveyed,
through such marriage, the settled estates to Dr. Cotton. The estates, by descent from their
only daughter, Elizabeth Cotton, now lie vested in the present Cavendish family. It is contended
that the entail in the male line has not failed. The second son of Sit Thomas left a son who died
a bachelor. The third son, however, left issue, and from him the cabman claims direct descent.
He says that his great grandfather was the son of the third son of Sir Thomas, and when Dr. 
Cotton's daughter, who married a Mr. Sheppard, entered into possession, the great grandfather
attempted to take possession. He was forcibly ejected, however, as were his grandfather, and
father, the latter in 1860. The family have always been too poor to take action at law, says the
cabman, but he now hopes to do what his ancestors failed to do. He recognises that the 
difficulty is further increased by the fact that the old parish register is very imperfect, some
leaves being missing. The Tyrell family is of ancient lineage, dating back four centuries. One
member was Master of Horse to Catherine, Queen Consort of Henry VIII, and descendants have
at times been very closely connected with the Royal House, one of the latest being General
Tyrell, M.P., Groom of the Bedchamber to the Prince of Wales, and the Governor of Gravesend
and Tilbury forts.'
Regrettably, I have been unable to discover any further information on this potential claim.
