Died at Little Parkhurst, Abinger, Surrey.

2018: A critical Londonist article gives: "As Governor of Nigeria, his suppression of rebellion there was crowned with a massacre in the town of Satiru. He dissuaded Gladstone from giving Uganda self-government, opposed native education, and allowed slavery to continue among 'elite African families'."
