207 Foster does not identify the parents of Christopher Wyvill. His pedigree reads: "CHRISTOPHER WYVILL, "clerk," so described by his family in 1825, no parentage being then given (see Whitaker's "Richmondshire"), rector of Black Notley, co. Essex, which he resigned 22 September, 1806, and executor to the Earl of Stanhope's will, dated 1805, died at Burton Hall, Wensley Dale, 8 March, 1822, aged 82."

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, however, identifies Christopher as the Christopher named on the other side of Foster's pedigree, being the son of Edward Wyvill, supervisor of excise at Edinburgh. 
Wyvill, Rev. Christopher (I1882)
208 Foster suggested that "Sir Garrott Rainsford" may be identical to "Garrett Ramsden." Rainsford, Sir Garrott (I1586)
209 Frederick Spencer, fourth Earl Spencer (1798–1857), naval officer, born on 14 April 1798, entered the navy on 18 September 1811. After serving as lieutenant under his brother in the Owen Glendower, Spencer commanded the brig Alacrity on the South American station. After promotion to captain on 26 August 1826, he was appointed to the frigate Talbot; he commanded her with distinction at the battle of Navarino on 20 October 1827, and in subsequent operations on the coast of the Morea. For these services he was made a CB (13 November 1827) and was decorated by the kings of France and Greece, and by the tsar. On 23 February 1830 he married his second cousin, Elizabeth Georgina (d. 10 April 1851), daughter of William Stephen Poyntz MP, of Cowdray Park, Midhurst. They had three children; the only son, John Poyntz Spencer, later became the fifth Earl Spencer.

In 1831 Spencer was MP for Worcestershire, and afterwards for Midhurst (between 1832 and 1834, and 1837 and 1841). On the death of his eldest brother, he succeeded as fourth Earl Spencer, on 1 October 1845. From 1846 to 1848 he was lord chamberlain of the queen's household; he was made a KG on 23 March 1849, and in 1854 was appointed lord steward. On 9 August 1854 he married Adelaide Horatia Elizabeth (d. 29 Oct 1877), daughter of Sir Horace Beauchamp Seymour. They had two children: Charles Robert became in 1910 the sixth Earl Spencer. A lifelong whig, Spencer was regarded by his children as a serious and reserved man. He died a vice-admiral on the retired list on 27 December 1857.

215 Gibbs writes, "He supported Gladstone's proposals for granting Home Rule to Ireland, and, from his experience of that country and its politicians his adhesion carried consideable weight. 'I question very much whether Lord Spencer was at heart a Home Ruler. By nature obstinate and inflexible, ... his conversion to Home Rule seemed as remarkable in its way as Sir William Harcourt's. It could only be explained by personal loyalty to Mr. Gladstone, and out and out loyalty to party ... In conversation, or on his feet in the House of Lords, he seemed to me to have no command of happy expression ... I should think that, with all his great qualities of industry, devotion to the public service and personal integrity, Lord Spencer was wanting in ... "vision." ' As Lord Lieutenant of Ireland he displayed courage and firmness in the suppression of criminal conspiracy, which brought down on him showers of Nationalist abuse; it was at the beginning of his second term of office that the Chief Secretary, Lord Frederick Cavendish, was assassinated. In private life he was an upright, high minded man with pleasing manners and a keen sportsman, being thrice Master of the Pytchley." (Spencer), John Poyntz 5th Earl Spencer (I49)
