Bradford People: Lord Fitzmaurice

Edmond George Petty-Fitzmaurice, 1st Baron Fitzmaurice (1846-1935) was a son of the 4th Marquis of Lansdowne and a Liberal politician, an MP from 1868-1885 and 1898-1906. He retired to Leigh House in Bradford and is remembered for his involvement in many local organisations, especially for the school which became named Fitzmaurice Grammar School in his memory (the name continues in the present Fitzmaurice Primary School). His house became Bradford’s first hospital.
