Sir Edmund Antrobus, 3rd Baronet
Sir Edmund was the eldest son of Sir Edmund Antrobus, 2nd Baronet and Anne Lindsay of Antrobus Hall, Cheshire and Amesbury, Wiltshire and was educated at St John's College, Cambridge. He married Marianne Georgiana Dashwood on 11 February 1847, and with her had six children: Louisa Emma, Edmund, Robert Lindsay, Cosmo Gordon and two other daughters.
His land included the ancient monument Stonehenge, but during his lifetime he not only refused to let the government agency for the preservation of ancient monuments even look at the property. It was rumored that an anonymous buyer wanted to buy the stones and take them to the United States; if Antrobus had accepted the offer, no one could have stopped him.
He succeeded to the Baronetcy upon the death of his father on 4 May 1870. Upon his death, he was succeeded to the Baronetcy by his eldest son, Sir Edmund Antrobus, 4th Baronet.
