The Military

Over the last 150 years Folkestone and district has been a very fashionable place to visit attracting many well connected people - as well as being the place where many senior military figures retired when they left service. As we discover significant military memorials or plots we will add them to these pages.

General Sir Baker Creed Russell

Baker was the second son of Captain William Lloyd Russell and his wife Eliza who arrived in the ‘Colony’ of New South Wales in the 1830’s and later settled at Ravensworth Homestead not far from Singleton in the Hunter Valley. Captain Russell, Eliza and some of the family returned to England in 1863 but still held huge tracks of land and Ravensworth until Eliza’s death in 1884, Captain Russell having passed away in 1866. There appears to be a continuance of Military connections throughout the generations. General Sir Baker Creed Russell had a very distinguishing military career some of which is described in the newspaper cuttings which can be downloaded here as a .pdf document.
