Madeline Clifton (Nee Agnew)

Madeline Agnew was the wife of Thomas Henry Clifton who died prematurely aged 35 in 1880.  She was the mother of the notorious John Talbot Clifton who inherited Lytham Hall after the death of his grandfather in 1882.  This excellent piece by Patrick Baty contains some interesting facts about her life and the burial of Thomas Henry at St Cuthbert's Church Lytham.  Although Madeline's husband didn't become Lord of the Manor her legacy remains today in the form of Agnew Street in the west end of the town.
Your Very Loving Madeline
