Content: Title from folder.
Content: Printed on border: "Sir George Mater Byng, ninth Viscount Torrington, was born 10th September, 1886, and at the age of three succeded his father. The family is one of great antiquity in Kent, though its honours were founded since the Revolution. George Byng, one of the most famous names in our naval history, was created Viscount Torrington in 1721, and many of his discendants have held distinguished posts in the Navy and Army, the last viscount having been lieutenant-colonel of the Rifle Brigade. The present peer has only a sister living. He is being educated at Miss Pincoff's school, Folkestone. He comes of age in 1907." "From a photo. by Glanville, Tunbridge Wells."
