We are most grateful to Janet and David Bromley of the Waterloo Association for their identification of Waterloo and Peninsula Battle participants amongst the 'English' Cemetery's burials. And we should include Walter Savage Landor who paid out of his wn pocket for a group of volunteers to come with him to Spain to fight against Napoleon and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, taken by her parents onto the battlefield of Waterloo as a young child, which she describes in Aurora Leigh but never told Robert as he did not know she was older than he! My Yorkshire Roberts great great grandfather was also a soldier at Waterloo.

THOMAS STIBBERT (1770-1846)

A colonel in the British army, he was staying in Florence when his son Frederick (1838-1906), who would make Florence his second home, was born. At Villa Davanzati, in Montughi, Frederick was to invest his learning and his wealth to bring to life the largest museum of antique arms in the world, and then to donate it to the city. LS
