Arthur Loftus TOTTENHAM1

M, #424, b. 5 April 1838, d. 4 December 1887

Biography

Arthur Loftus TOTTENHAM was born on 5 Apr 1838 in Glenfarne Hall, Co. Leitrim, Ireland.1 He married Sarah Ann GORE on 14 Jun 1859.1 He died on 4 Dec 1887, at age 49, in New York, USA.1
Arthut Loftus Tottenham lived at Glenfarne Hall, Co. Leitrim, Ireland. He was recorded in the 1881 census at 38 Grosvenor Gardens, Knightsbridge, London, England.
The webpage The Tottenhams of Glenfarne Hall gives the following information: "By his influence he got the Sligo, Letrim and Northern Counties Railway laid from Enniskillen to Sligo in the late 1870’s at a total cost of £347,000. In the process the money ran out and he went surety for a loan from Harland & Wolfe of Belfast to finish the railway and connect up with the main line at Collooney. He was the first chairman of the company and eventually sole contractor for the line’s construction. Later Sir Edward Harland took over Glenfarne Hall for this debt and Arthur Loftus was disinherited of his possessions in Leitrim. He was M.P for Leitrim from 1880-85. Arthur Loftus emigrated to England and was elected M.P for Winchester in 1886 and he died in New York in 1887 aged 49. He is buried at St Andrew’s Parish Church Hove Sussex, England along with his wife and two of his sons who died as young children."2,3
