Sir Alfred Jodrell, 4th Baronet (1847-1929) was the fourth and last of the Jodrell Baronets, assuming the title in 1882. The title became extinct on his death.[1] Jodrell married Jane Grimston, daughter of James Grimston, 2nd Earl of Verulam. [2]

He founded a shell museum[3] in Glanford, near his Norfolk home at Bayfield Hall, to house his collection accumulated over six decades.[4][5] He was a noted public benefactor, restoring old churches, such as St Nicholas, Blakeney, sending provisions to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital, and rebuilding and administering his estates and other local buildings, such as the watermill.[6][7]
