Sir Sydney Charles Buxton: An Overview

If anyone out there on the internet would like to write up a page to go here, please contact me as I would be very pleased to hear from you.

 I understand there are some photographic portraits of him in the National Portrait Gallery in London.


Sydney's daughter Mary Emma Rutson (nee Buxton 1857-1942) married Albert Osliff Rutson (1836-1890).  He died 8 months before his daughter Margaret Albert Rutson was born.  She was the second wife of Lt Col.Ronald d'Arcy Fife CMG,DSO (1868-1946).  She inherited Nunnington Hall, Ryedale, North Yorkshire from her uncle Henry Rutson in Nov 1920 and gave it to the National Trust before she died in 1952, with a life tenancy to her elder adopted daughter Susan (1917-2001).
