Aylmer, Sir Anthony

Frederick’s hen-pecked father, owner of Aylmer Park in Yorkshire, and Clara Amedroz’ only friend in the family.

"He was a heavy man, over seventy years of age, much afflicted with gout, and given to no pursuit on earth which was available for his comfort.... He was a big man, with a broad chest, and a red face, and a quantity of white hair, - and was much given to abusing his servants" - The Belton Estate
