Francis Baring (1833-1895) gained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the Scots Guards. He died unmarried at age 61.


  1. Facial hair worthy of an officer.

  2. Francis Baring was also a noted sculptor. He exhibited a marble figure titled 'Gretchen' in the 1873 International Exhibition in London.

  3. Thank you Ray. Very interesting! I desperately tried to find information about his sculptures, but sadly I couldn't find anything, except the stereoview at your site!.
