Sir Claud James Rivett-Carnac, 4th baronet
No definite news of Sir Claud appears to have been received after 1908, the year before the
death of his father and his presumed succession to the baronetcy.
His family made strenuous efforts to locate him during the years that followed, and their quest
was noticed in the newspapers. The following article appeared in the Melbourne 'Argus' on 
15 July 1922, apparently reprinted from the London 'Daily Chronicle' :-
'Where is Sir Claude James Rivett-Carnac? Residence "[   ]" in Debrett's Peerage indicates that
nobody knows. And a fortune awaits him if he can be found. His sister, Mrs. Foulerton, wife
of Dr. H. P. Foulerton, M.D., of His Majesty's Prison Service, is trying to get into touch with 
her baronet brother, who has been "lost" to the family for 14 years. She last heard of him
indirectly three years ago. "I am most anxious that my brother should communicate with me
at once," said Mrs. Foulerton to a "Daily Chronicle" representative. "He is the fourth baronet,
and yet it is not even certain whether he knows that he has succeeded to the title. We last
saw him at home in England in 1908, which was the year before his father's death. Sir Claude
went abroad again in 1908, leaving no address. From time to time, through various channels,
we have heard of him as being in the South Sea Isles and in Canada, on the Pacific coast of
America, and in South Africa. The latest news he have of him is that he was seen in South
Africa about three years ago. He is believed to be married. The only evidence, however, we
have of this is a report which appeared in a Sunday newspaper in 1915 that he had married
an actress in San Francisco. Otherwise, his heir is a cousin, William Percival Rivett Carnac.
It is possible - and from my knowledge of him probable - that Sir Claude has known about
his succession to the title and never bothered to take up the legal claim. But whether he
knows or does not know as to his succession to the title, there is a monetary side to the
matter. I have reason to believe he is unaware of the extent of the money to which he is duly
entitled. It amounts to many thousands of pounds.  For nearly 14 years the Baronetcy fund
has been accumulating, with interest, and it is only fit and proper that he should take some
action to clear up the financial position. For my own sake I would be delighted to hear from
my brother. I have no quarrel with him, and if his eye should catch these words, I appeal to
him to write to me without delay……"
On 11 March 1924, an order was issued in the Chancery Division of the High Court of Justice
in London which gave leave to presume the death of Sir Claude Rivett-Carnac as having
occurred on 31 December 1909. As far as I can tell, this case was never reported in the
usual fashion of law reports. The Chancery Reports of 1924 include no reference to the case,
nor can I find any reference to it in any other legal reports. The order issued by the Chancery
Division could surely only have been based on evidence that Sir Claud was in fact dead, but
I have been unable to ascertain, thus far, the nature of this evidence.
Sir Boyle Roche, 1st and only baronet
The following is extracted from "An Anecdotal History of the British Parliament" by George Henry
Jennings [London 1880]:-
Sir Boyle Roche, who was a member of the Irish Parliament in the period preceding the Union
[Tralee 1775-1776 and 1790-1797, Gowran 1777-1783, Portarlington 1784-1790 and Old
Leighlin 1798-1800], achieved renown by the remark that he could not be, "like a bird, in two 
places at once." Some other sayings imputed to him are scarcely less celebrated. "I would
gladly, Mr. Speaker, sacrifice not only a part of the constitution, but the whole of it, to 
preserve the remainder." And again, speaking of what might be expected if the leaders of the
rebellion gained sway, "Our heads will be thrown upon that table to stare us in the face!" To
him also is ascribed that example of mixed metaphor, "I smell a rat, Mr. Speaker; I see him
floating in the air; but I will yet nip him in the bud." But on one occasion Sir Boyle gained the
victory over [John Philpot] Curran in a contest in the Irish House. "Do not speak of my honour,"
said Curran; "I am the guardian of my own honour." "Faith," replied Sir Boyle, "I knew that at
some time or other you would accept a sinecure."
Sir John Charles Rogers, 9th baronet
The following report on the inquest held after the death of Sir John appeared in 'Berrow's
Worcester Journal' on 31 March 1894:-
'An inquest was held on Tuesday at Blachford, Cornwood, near Plymouth, on the body of Sir
John Charles Rogers, Bart., brother of the late Lord Blachford, who was found drowned in an
ornamental lake in the grounds of his residence on Tuesday. In accordance with his custom, 
the deceased, who was 75 years of age, started for a walk shortly before his dinner hour. As
he failed to return, the butler and Colonel Lindsay, a guest, went in search of him, and late in
the evening his body and walking stick were found in the lake. Dr. Rundle stated that he had
attended deceased for some years for heart disease, and conjectured that he must have
slipped into the pond, and that the shock caused instant death. A verdict of "Found drowned"
was returned.'
Sir James William Cecil Roll, 4th baronet
From the 'Townsville Daily Bulletin' of 3 April 1939:-
"This is Jimmy Roll," the young Anglo-Catholic priest was saying, calling up a friend on the 
telephone, as I came into the room at St.James-the-Great Vicarage, Bethnal Green, writes a
"London Evening Standard" reporter.
'Actually he is the Rev. Sir James W.C. Roll, Bart., curate of that church and grandson of a 
Lord Mayor of London, Sir Frederick Roll. He inherited the baronetcy last April on the death of
his father, Sir Cecil, who left a fortune of £460,000 net.
"But they call me Father Roll in Bethnal Green," he told me, "this being an Anglo-Catholic church.
A lucky way out," he added, laughing. "It would have been very awkward in this parish being
called 'Sir James.' "
'Two younger brothers shared with him their father's large fortune. They held different views
on the best way to spend it.
'John and Gordon have each bought a racehorse, for 650 guineas and 50 guineas respectively,
to run in the Grand National. The Rev. Sir James is giving £1,500 to start a new hostel for 
London's "dead end kids."
"I was already a clergyman when I succeeded to the baronetcy," he said, "and I intend to
remain in the church. The money and title were both rather embarrassing to my career; but
so far," he added, smiling, "I have not had a single begging letter. As for my brothers, their
racing interests are their own affair."
'He is 26, an energetic, fresh-faced young man who bounds up the vicarage stairs three steps
at a time.
"The new hostel," he said, "is the joint project of my friend Father Bright of St.John's,
Limehouse, and me. We tried to raise the money by public donations, but that failed, so I am
giving the £1,500 for the house and the first year's running myself."
'Father Bright told me that the hostel will be a probation home for 12 boys, provided from the
police courts.'
Percy Lionel Rothband, son of Sir Henry Lesser Rothband, 1st and only baronet
Sir Henry Lesser Rothband was created a baronet in 1923 "for public services" in relation to his
role in obtaining employment for disabled soldiers and sailors. On his death in 1940 the 
baronetcy became extinct, since his only son had died in 1926, the inquest into his death being
reported in 'The Manchester Guardian' of 23 November 1926 [edited]:-
'An inquiry was held yesterday, by the Manchester City Coroner into the death of Percy Lionel
Rothband, Wyelands, St. John's Road, Buxton, whose body was found in the corridor of a train
from Buxton on Saturday morning last, on its arrival at London Road Station, Manchester. The
dead man had a bullet wound in his head, and an empty revolver was lying by his side. 
'Leonard Mandelberg said he was a cousin of the late Mr. Rothband, and last saw him alive 
about 6.20 on Friday night last. His health appeared just as usual. In reply to the Coroner, the
witness said he had never heard Mr. Rothband complain of loss of sleep or threaten to take his
life. He further stated....that there were neither business nor domestic affairs which in the least
degree had any connection with the affair.
'The Coroner then read a letter which Mr. Rothband had directed to his father (Sir Henry Lesser
Rothband): "Forgive me dearest and best of friends. I can't stand not sleeping any more.
Something inside me has gone smash, and I cannot stand it any longer." There was, added the
Coroner, some sort of legal will which bears out the relationship in the home such as the last
witness has described. Had the deceased not been on the best of terms in his home life he
would hardly have been so anxious to make that provision for his wife, in which he nominated
her and his father as executors. The will was written in pencil and signed.
'A railway porter at London Road Station described the finding of the body on the floor of the
corridor. All the other passengers had left by the door at the other end of the coach. None of
them could have seen Mr. Rothband, who was obscured by the corridor door.
'Wilfred Dakin, an engine driver's fireman, stated that he came by the Buxton train and was
walking along the platform at London Road Station when he saw something inside a corridor.
Looking again he observed a prone body, and thinking someone might have fainted he opened
the door and found the body. Turning the head he saw a revolver.
'Police Constable Barker stated that he was summoned to No. 6 platform, and on arriving at 
Roby Street infirmary Mr. Rothband was found to be dead. A bullet was discovered in the
trousers pocket, together with letters addressed to Sir Henry Rothband.
'The Coroner, in returning a verdict of suicide whilst temporarily insane, said it was the kind
of case where a person's health, probably only temporarily, had affected the mind.'
Sir Charles Russell VC, 3rd baronet
Russell was a Brevet Major in the 3rd Battalion, Grenadier Guards in the Crimean War, where
he was awarded the Victoria Cross due to his bravery in the Battle of Inkerman on 5 November
1854. The award, which was gazetted on 24 February 1857, states that Russell "offered to
dislodge a party of Russians from the Sand-bag Battery, if anyone would follow him; Sergeant
Norman, Privates Anthony Palmer and Bailey (who was killed), volunteered the first. The attack
succeeded."
During this action Sir Charles was about to be bayoneted by a Russian soldier, but the 
assailant was shot down by Private Anthony Palmer, thus saving Russell's life. Palmer also 
received the Victoria Cross.
Between 1865 and 1868, Russell was MP for Berkshire, which at that time returned three 
members to Parliament. Since one of the other members was Robert Loyd-Lindsay (later Baron
Wantage), two out of the three members were winners of the Victoria Cross.
