Uxbridge (centre)

Lord Henry William George Paget, Earl of Uxbridge, was the eldest son and heir to the 2nd Marquess of Anglesey, whose main seat was at Plas Newydd, Anglesey. Albert Ricardo knew the Earl of Uxbridge as a fellow cricketer, but there were also family connections between the Pagets and the Tyrwhitt family. Henry’s distant cousin, Eleanor Paget, had married into the Jolliffe family and was the mother-in-law of Mrs. Ricardo’s sister, Leila. Mrs. Ricardo’s childhood home, Stanley Hall, was not far from the estate at Beaudesert, Staffordshire, which was one of the Paget homes.
