|According to his obituary in the Times (28 July 1868), ‘Lord Cranworth [Robert Monsey Rolfe] married, when already pretty well advanced in age, a Miss Carr, of Hampstead, a lady whose death we had occasion to chronicle some five or six months ago. He felt her loss deeply at the time; he has not long survived her; and in a few days Lord Cranworth’s remains will be placed by the side of hers in the little village churchyard which adjoins his seat of Holwood, near Bromley, in Kent.’
Lady Laura Cranworth and her husband appear on the 1861 at their house, Holwood Hill, at Keston in Kent. Lady Cranworth gave Bloomsbury as her place of birth.
