British, 1846 - 1931

Rebow, Hector John Gurdon


The son of John Gurdon Rebow and his second wife, Lady Georgiana Isabella Toler (daughter of Hector John Graham, 2nd earl of Norbury), Hector John Gurdon Rebow inherited the Wivenhoe Park estate by descent through his father's first wife, Mary Martin Slater Rebow (1805-1842), whose surname John Gurdon took when he married her in 1796. Hector was a late Lieutenant in the Essex Rifles Militia, and formerly Cornet and Sub-Lieutenant in the 2nd Life Guards. He served as High Sheriff for Essex in 1882, as Justice of the Peace for county Cambridge, and from 1884-1885, as Mayor of Colchester. On 25 June 1873, he married his cousin, Judith Clanche, daughter of Rev. Philip Gurdon, Rector of Cranworth-cum-Letton, Norfolk. They had a son, Martin (born in 1875 and killed in action in Cape Colony, 1901), and a daughter, Winifred.
