Another visit to the wonderful collection from the Poole studio in Waterford. Each time I upload one of this collection I think how lucky Waterford is to have their history recorded so beautifully and preserved for posterity by AH Poole! I know that there is at least one place named after Sir Henry but who was he and why did the Marquis commemorate him so?
Several contributors provide information on this memorial (and the man it commemorates). Oaktree_brian_1976
provides a link which describes
Sir Henry (Page Turner*) Barron (1824-1900) as a career politician as a career politician and diplomat.
(* Yes. Page-Turner. We laughed too :) )...
