Marquess of Crewe

Robert Offley Ashburton Crewe-Milnes, 1st Marquess of Crewe, Liberal politician, statesman and writer. Born 16 Upper Brook Street, Mayfair. Ambassador to France, 1922–8. Aged 41 he was married for the second time, to a woman the same age as his eldest daughter, 18. We can find no specific connection to Hackney/Shoreditch nor to social housing so can't explain why he unveiled the Shakespeare House plaque.
