Count Alfred Isidore Walsh Freeman born Walsh

1788 - 1862


'Count Freeman' was reported by both Sturge & Harvey and Thome & Kimball as the owner of Belvidere in the period of Apprenticeship. Count Freeman was Alfred Isidore Walsh-Freeman, born Walsh, who married Stella Eloisa Stanhope, daughter of Philip Dormer Stanhope (q.v.): the couple reportedly changed their name from Walsh to Walsh-Freeman in 1823 in accordance with the will of Mrs Allen, Stella Francis Allen (q.v.), the great-aunt of Stella Eloisa Stanhope. Alfred Isidore Walsh was the son of Philip Walsh, a soldier in the service of the French army before the French Revolution also referred to as 'Count'.
