About Author

S. Baring-Gould

S. Baring-Gould was born on January 28, 1834, in Exeter's St Sidwell parish. He was the eldest son and heir of Edward Baring-Gould (1804–1872), lord of the manor of Lew Trenchard, a Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant of Devon, formerly a lieutenant in the Madras Light Cavalry (resigned 1830), by his first wife, Sophia Charlotte Bond, daughter of Admiral Francis Godolphin Bond, Royal Navy. The Gould family descended from a crusader named John Gold, who was present at the siege of Damietta in 1217 and was granted an estate in Seaborough, Somerset, by Ralph de Vallibus in 1220 for his bravery. Margaret Gould was the wife of Charles Baring (1742-1829) of Courtland in Exmouth, Devon, whose memorial still stands in Lympstone Church. He was the fourth son of Johann Baring (1697-1748), of Larkbeare House, Exeter, a German immigrant apprenticed to an Exeter wool merchant, and the younger brother of Francis Baring (1740-1810) and John Baring (1730-1816), of Mount Radford, Exeter. The two brothers founded the London mercantile house of John and Francis Baring Company, which later became Barings Bank.
