Stephen William Laurence BELBIN (1860-1924)
This is Stephen William Laurence Belbin, born in Melbury, Fontmell, Dorset, the first of 8 children of Henry Belbin (1838-1909) of Templecombe, Somerset and Elizabeth Ann Lawrence (1841-1916). Stephen, known as William, married Annie Lever (b. c. 1857) whose parents were from Ireland. She was Head Housekeeper and William was Head Groom for the brother of the Duke of Alba. William was in charge of the polo ponies and rumour has it that he and Annie were good dancers and were asked to dance at the Duke's parties.
