Biographical / Historical

General Edward Charles Frome (1802-1890) was Lieutenant Governor of Guernsey, 1869-1874. Frome's mother, Jane, was the daughter of General Alexander Baynes (d. 1804). Captain George Macleod Baynes (d. 1874), R.A., who features in the collection, was presumably a relative of General Frome.
