Frederick Fiennes, 16th Baron Saye and Sele
Fiennes was born Frederick Benjamin Twisleton on 4 July 1799. He was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford. He was ordained in 1823 and spent his whole career at Hereford Cathedral. He was appointed Prebendary in 1825; Treasurer in 1832 and Canon Residentiary in 1840.
He succeeded a cousin to the title of Baron Saye and Sele in 1847 and legally changed his surname to Twisleton-Wykeham-Fiennes in 1849, although the name is frequently shortened to Fiennes. As Baron Saye and Sele, he arranged restoration work on the family home of Broughton Castle but the house had to be let to tenants from 1885.
