Sir Claude and Lady Champion de Crespigny, Tatler cover

Sir Claude Champion de Crespigny, 4th Baronet (1847-1935), soldier, sportsman and adventurer, pictured on the front cover of The Tatler in 1927 beside his wife, Lady Champion de Crespigny at Champion Lodge, Maldon, Essex. Sir Claude's life reads like that of a fictional Victorian action hero. After a military career, he became expert in a number of sports. As a ballooning enthusiast he was the first man to cross the North Sea in 1883. He was also a big-game hunter, a fearless diver, canoeist, sailor and swimmer (becoming the first European to swim the Nile rapids in 1889) and as a jockey, he rode his last steeplechase at the age of 67. Unsurprisingly, his maxim in life was, 'Where there is a daring deed to be done in any part of the world, an Englishman should leap to the front to accomplish it. In 1872, he married Georgina McKerrel with whom he had five sons and four daughters. Date: 1927

Caricature of Richard Claude Belt, English sculptor

Caricature of Richard Claude Belt (1851-1920), English sculptor -- Law Court Pantomime. Mr Policeman Lewis to Mr Motley Belt. A libel case between Belt and a former employer, Charles Lawes, ran for six months in 1882, over the disputed credit for a sculpture. Belt won the case and was awarded damages of 5000, but Lawes launched an appeal and the damages were reduced to 500. However, the Court of Appeal overturned this in 1884, and reinstated the amount to 5000. Lawes then filed for bankruptcy to avoid payment. The policeman here is Sir George Henry Lewis (1833-1911), lawyer for Charles Lawes, so annoyed at losing the case that he pursued and ruined Belt.
1883
