Sir Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon

Lloyd Tyrell-Kenyon (1864-1927) was the 4th Baron Kenyon of Gredington in the County of Flint. He had a minor career as a politician because he inherited a seat in the House of Lords at the age of 21. He served in the Shropshire Yeomanry. He added the name Tyrell under Royal Licence in 1912. He is reported to have died from typhoid fever contracted from a mosquito bite, but mosquitoes don't transmit typhoid. It is contracted by eating or drinking food or water contaminated with the faeces of an infected person.
