Administrative/Biographical history:

David Pollock, a Scottish-born saddler who had settled in London, had three distinguished sons: Sir David Pollock, Chief Justice of Bombay; Field Marshal Sir George Pollock, who served in Afghanistan; and the Right Honorable Sir Frederick Pollock. The papers in this collection seem to relate to properties owned by the latter and his family.

Frederick Pollock was born in 1783. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he excelled. He was called to the Bar in 1807 and pursued a successful legal career. He became MP for Huntingdon and was appointed Attorney General, being promoted to Lord Chief Baron of the Court of Exchequer in 1844. In addition he pursued mathematical interests, submitting articles to the Royal Society.

Pollock married Frances Rivers in 1813. She died in 1827 and in 1835 he married Srah Ann Lanslow of Hatton. He had a large family, 20 children by both women. His eldest son, William Frederick Pollock, inherited the baronetcy in 1870 when Frederick died.
