Wharton Sir Alured

The head of the Wharton family, and owner of Wharton Hall.

"Sir Alured Wharton was a baronet, with a handsome old family place on the Wye, in Herefordshire, whose forefathers had been baronets since baronets were first created, and whose earlier forefathers had lived at Wharton Hall much before that time. It may be imagined therefore that Sir Alured was proud of his name, of his estate, and of his rank." - The Prime Minister
