Granville Waldegrave, 3rd Baron Radstock
The Lord Radstock
|Died||8 December 1913 (aged 80)|
He became the 3rd Baron Radstock on the death of his father Granville George Waldegrave in 1857. Radstock married Susan Calcraft (1833–1892) on 16 July 1858 in Trinity Church, Marylebone. She was the youngest daughter of John Hales Calcraft, MP for Wareham, and Lady Caroline Montagu, daughter of William Montagu, 5th Duke of Manchester. In 1889, they acquired the Mayfield estate in Weston, Southampton.
As a result of a spiritual crisis during the Crimean War, Redstock with his wife joined the Plymouth brothers' "free" church in Bristol. It was a community of the so-called Open Brethren, led by prominent theologian and missionary George Müller.
Radstock is perhaps best known for his work as a missionary during the Great Russian Awakening. In 1874, he travelled to St Petersburg as part of his missionary work, trips that were repeated in 1875–6 and 1878.
