In Debrett 1868
- under Byron it says George Anson Byron born 1789 entered the navy in
1800 and became an Admiral on the Reserved list 1862. He is an Extra
Lord in Waiting to the Queen ( Victoria). Married 1816 Elizabeth
Mary, daughter of Sacheveral Chandos Pole, Esq. of Radbourne,
DErbyshire, and has issue living.
I wonder if the date of the marriage had anything to do with our
Byron's leaving the country? As long as Lady Byron lived, Lord Byron
could not have a legitimate son except by her.
His lordship's predecessor was his cousin, George Gordon, 6th baron.
He was b. Jan. 22.1788, and succeeded his great uncle, May 19, 1798;
was educated at harrow and Trinity College, Cambridge; was author of
"Hours of Idleness" and "English Bards and Scotch Reviewers,"
"Childe Harold," "The Siege of Corinth," "The Giaour," "the Bride of
Abydos," "Don JUan,"" etc. etc. &c.&c.. m. Jan.2 1815, Anna Isabella
Mlbanke, da. of Sir Ralph Milbanke Noel, 6th bart, and by her had
issue a daughter, and d. 1822 at Missolonghi, from fever brought on
by over exertion in forwarding the cause which he loved so well-- the
independence of the Greeks-- who, as a mark of respect to his memory,
ordered a public mourning for twenty one days. her ladyship died
