Hallam Tennyson, 17th cousin 1x removed

Hallam Tennyson is my 17th cousin 1x removed. The ancestor who connects us together is Sir Ralph De Neville of Raby Earl of Westmorland (1364 – 1425), my 13th great grandfather.

Hallam Tennyson was born at Chapel House, Twickenham, in Surrey, England, and schooled at Marlborough College and Trinity College, Cambridge. His profession aspirations concluded when his parents’ age and ill-health required him to depart Cambridge to become their personalized assistant. The concept of proceeding directly into nation-wide politics was also left behind.

It was partially for Hallam’s advantage that Alfred Tennyson acknowledged a peerage in 1884, the year Hallam married Audrey Boyle (after being disappointed in his love for Mary Gladstone, daughter of William Ewart Gladstone). On his father’s dying in 1892, he handed down the title Baron Tennyson, and also the function of established biographer. His Tennyson: a Memoir was published in 1897.
