Second wife of Leonard Darwin*, fourth and last surviving son of Charles Darwin and Emma Wedgwood, was born at Down House near Downe, Kent on 15 January 1850 and died in London on 26 March 1943. He entered the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich in 1868, and came second on the examination list, to his father's great joy. He served in the Royal Engineers, rising to the rank of major by 1890, and on scientific expeditions to photograph the transit of Venus. He taught at the School of Military Engineering at Chatham from 187782, and served in the intelligence division of the Ministry of War from 189590. He entered parliament in 1892 as Liberal-Unionist MP for Lichfield, holding the seat until 1895, during which time he began a serious study of economics. From 190811 he was president of the Royal Geographical Society.

*He married, secondly, Charlotte Mildred Massingberd, daughter of Edmund Langton and Emily Caroline Massingberd, on 29th November, 1900 at Kensington, London, England. She was given the name of Charlotte Mildred Langton at birth. In 1887 her name was legally changed to Charlotte Mildred Massingberd by Royal Licence.
