Administrative/Biographical history:

Charles Hayne Seale-Haynes, 1833-1903, was the Liberal Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ashburton division of Devon. His will established a trust to found Seale-Hayne Agricultural College, near Newton Abbot, now a department of the University of Plymouth.

The Duke of Northumberland's River was an artificial river flowing into the Thames at Isleworth. It was built by Henry VII to serve the abbey at Syon with water to drive a mill at Twickenham and later another mill at Isleworth. By the 1900s the mills had closed and as having a privately run river in the county was proving a nuisance and an expense the Middlesex County Council bought it in 1930 under the Middlesex County Council Act 1930.
