Born India. Called to the bar by the Inner Temple in 1882. Travelled extensively, settled in Singapore where he made his fortune in property. Returned to England in 1905. In 1915 he gave his Singapore properties to the Inn, funding the construction of Niblett Hall, in return for an annuity.
More interestingly, he was a bigamist. In 1912 he married wife number 1. Their honeymoon took in Singapore where Niblett resumed relations with a former mistress. His wife left him, returned to England and was later confined in a mental asylum. In 1917 Niblett married wife number 2. His first father-in-law took exception and ensured he was taken to trial, where he received a sentence of just one month, due to ill-health.
He died following an accident where he slipped on the footboard of a bus. Buried Kensal Green cemetery.
