1. England – England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west, the Irish Sea lies northwest of England and the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east, the country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain in its centre and south, and includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly, and the Isle of Wight. England became a state in the 10th century, and since the Age of Discovery. The Industrial Revolution began in 18th-century England, transforming its society into the worlds first industrialised nation, Englands terrain mostly comprises low hills and plains, especially in central and southern England. However, there are uplands in the north and in the southwest, the capital is London, which is the largest metropolitan area in both the United Kingdom and the European Union. In 1801, Great Britain was united with the Kingdom of Ireland through another Act of Union to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1922 the Irish Free State seceded from the United Kingdom, leading to the latter being renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the name England is derived from the Old English name Englaland, which means land of the Angles. The Angles were one of the Germanic tribes that settled in Great Britain during the Early Middle Ages, the Angles came from the Angeln peninsula in the Bay of Kiel area of the Baltic Sea. The earliest recorded use of the term, as Engla londe, is in the ninth century translation into Old English of Bedes Ecclesiastical History of the English People. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, its spelling was first used in 1538. The earliest attested reference to the Angles occurs in the 1st-century work by Tacitus, Germania, the etymology of the tribal name itself is disputed by scholars, it has been suggested that it derives from the shape of the Angeln peninsula, an angular shape. An alternative name for England is Albion, the name Albion originally referred to the entire island of Great Britain. The nominally earliest record of the name appears in the Aristotelian Corpus, specifically the 4th century BC De Mundo, in it are two very large islands called Britannia, these are Albion and Ierne. But modern scholarly consensus ascribes De Mundo not to Aristotle but to Pseudo-Aristotle, the word Albion or insula Albionum has two possible origins. Albion is now applied to England in a poetic capacity. Another romantic name for England is Loegria, related to the Welsh word for England, Lloegr, the earliest known evidence of human presence in the area now known as England was that of Homo antecessor, dating to approximately 780,000 years ago. The oldest proto-human bones discovered in England date from 500,000 years ago, Modern humans are known to have inhabited the area during the Upper Paleolithic period, though permanent settlements were only established within the last 6,000 yearsEngland – Stonehenge, a Neolithic monument

He got the naval estimates just below the important figure of £10,000,000. Initially Childers had the support of the influential Controller of the Navy and his re-organisation of the Admiralty was unpopular and poorly done. Childers was responsible for the construction of HMS Captain in defiance of the advice of his advisers, the Controller. HMS Captain was commissioned in April 1870, and sank on the night of 6/7 September 1870 and she was, as predicted by Robison and Reed, insufficiently stable. Shortly before HMS Captain sank, Childers had moved his son, Midshipman Leonard Childers from Reeds designed HMS Monarch onto the new ship-of-the-line, Leonard did not survive. Childers faced strong criticism following the Court Martial on the loss of HMS Captain, and attempted to clear his name with a 359 page memorandum, a move described as dubious public ethics. Childers unfairly blamed Robinson for the loss of the Captain, and as a result of this Robinson was replaced as Third Lord, following the loss of his son and the recriminations that followed, Childers resigned through ill health as First Lord in March 1871Hugh Childers – The Right Honourable Hugh Childers
5. Lord Randolph Churchill – Lord Randolph Henry Spencer-Churchill was a British statesman. Churchill was a genuine Tory radical, who coined the term Tory Democracy and his most acerbic critics resided in his own party among his closest friends, but his disloyalty to Lord Salisbury was the beginning of the end of what should have been a glittering career. His devoted son, Winston, who knew his father in life. Born at 3 Wilton Terrace, Belgravia, London, Randolph Spencer was the third son of the 7th Duke of Marlborough, and his wife, Lady Frances Vane. He was at first privately educated, and later attended Tabors Preparatory School, Cheam, in January 1863 he travelled the short distance by private train to Eton College, where he remained until July 1865. He did not stand out either at work or sport while at Eton, his contemporaries describe him as a vivacious. Among lifelong friendships made at school were Edward Hamilton and Archibald Primrose, in October 1867 he matriculated and was admitted at Merton College, Oxford. At Oxford, Primrose, now Lord Dalmeny, joined him at the parties as members of the Bullingdon Club. Randolph was frequently in trouble with the university authorities for drunkenness, smoking in academic dress and his rowdy behavior was infectious, rubbing off on friends and contemporaries, he gained a reputation as an enfant terrible. He had a liking for sport, but was a reader, playing hard. Churchill experienced none of the early doubts but made many mistakes and he never regretted being an early friend and admirer of the Disraelis. It was however the cause of dissension that emerged in his relations with a colder more aloof, disciplinarian Salisbury. Churchills youthful exuberance did not prevent him gaining a degree in jurisprudence. A year later Churchill and his brother, George, were initiated into the rites of Freemasonry. His maiden speech, delivered in his first session, prompted compliments from Harcourt and Disraeli, Lord Randolph Churchill married a New Yorker, Jennie Jerome, daughter of Leonard Jerome, on 15 April 1874. According to Frank Harris, the editor of Fortnightly Magazine, who published the allegation in his scandalous 1924 autobiography, My Life and Loves, dr Clayton was, however, a society doctor with many patients among the British upper class. Harris book recounted a story told by Louis Jennings, who had published Randolphs 1880-1888 speeches, Jennings account as reported by Harris has never been corroborated. By 1924, Harris had fallen out with Winston Churchill, for whom he had been a literary agent, Harris had made similar but false or unsubstantiated assertions about Oscar Wilde and Guy de MaupassantLord Randolph Churchill – The Right Honourable Lord Randolph Churchill

In November 1695 he wrote and read Memorial Concerning the Coyn of England to the Privy Council and this work, commissioned by the Lords Justices, was an argument against the majority partys proposal that Englands coins should be devalued to pay for the war with France. In October 1696 he published Essay on Publick Virtue, a diatribe against the ruling Whig Junto, the basis for Davenants argument was that high taxation for debt service was a burden on trade, industry, and land.

14. Arthur Kinnaird, 11th Lord Kinnaird – Arthur Fitzgerald Kinnaird, 11th Lord Kinnaird KT was a principal of The Football Association and a leading footballer. Kinnairds father, Arthur Kinnaird, 10th Lord Kinnaird, was a banker, Kinnaird born in London and was educated at Cheam School, Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating BA in 1869. He worked in the bank, becoming a director of Ransom. This bank later merged with others in 1896 to become Barclays Bank of which he was a board director until his death. As a player, Kinnaird had a remarkable record, having played in the second FA Cup final in 1873, he took part in a further eight – an unmatched total of nine finals in all. He was on the side three times with Wanderers and twice with the Old Etonians and celebrated his fifth Cup Final victory by standing on his head in front of the pavilion. In the course of his career as a Cup Final player, Kinnaird played in every position, in fact the confusion appears to have been caused by the haphazard match reporting typical of the earliest days of the Association game. He first played football while at Cheam School and was captain of the team in 1859, aged 12. He continued to play football at Eton College, winning the House Cup in 1861 with Joyness House and he first played association football early in 1866. He was renowned as perhaps the toughest tackler of his day, a friend is said to have responded, You must not worry, madam. If he does, it not be his own. Posterity has awarded Arthur Kinnaird the reputation of being fond of hacking, i. e. deliberately kicking his opponents. This at length caused a protest from the captain of the Harrovians, alcock and Morton Peto Betts were sufficiently disabled to be unable to play for England in the first official international, two weeks later. Sportswriters and fellow internationals queued to pay tribute to Kinnairds skill as a footballer both during and after his career, of course, he had the voice and manner of an educated man of distinction. He was a leader, and above all things, a type of Christian. As a player, in any position, was an examplar of manly robust football and he popularised the game by his activity as a footballer among every class. He was at much at home with the boys of the Polytechnic, London, nevertheless, he was fair, above board, and was prepared to receive all the knocks that came his way without a trace of resentment. As an administrator, Kinnaird was an FA committeeman at the age of 21 and he became treasurer 9 years later and president 13 years after that, replacing Major Francis Marindin in 1890Arthur Kinnaird, 11th Lord Kinnaird – Lord Kinnaird

The main achievement of Markhams RGS presidency was the revival at the end of the 19th century of British interest in Antarctic exploration, after a 50-year interval.

In the years following the expedition he continued to champion Scotts career, all his life Markham was a constant traveller and a prolific writer, his works including histories, travel accounts and biographies. He authored many papers and reports for the RGS, and did editing and translation work for the Hakluyt Society.

A year later Clement began his schooling, first at Cheam, reportedly an apt pupil, he showed particular interest in geology and astronomy, and from an early age he wrote prolifically, an activity which filled much of his spare time. At Westminster, which he found a wonderful and delightful place, he developed a particular interest in boating, in May 1844 Markham was introduced by his aunt, the Countess of Mansfield, to Rear-Admiral Sir George Seymour, a Lord of the Admiralty. The boy made an impression on the admiral, and the meeting led to the offer of a cadetship in the Royal Navy. Accordingly, on 28 June 1844 Markham travelled to Portsmouth to join Seymours flagship HMS Collingwood, Collingwood was being fitted out for an extended voyage to the Pacific Ocean where Seymour was to assume command of the Pacific station. This tour of duty lasted for almost four years, Markhams social connections assured him of a relatively comfortable time, he was frequently invited to dine with the admiral, whose wife and daughters were on board. On 25 June 1846 Markham passed the examination for midshipman, being placed third in a group of ten, the long periods spent in Chilean and Peruvian ports had also enabled him to learn Spanish. Towards the end of the voyage Markham experienced growing doubts about a naval career, he now desired above all to be an explorerClements Markham – Sir Clements Robert Markham KCB FRS
