Warre, Edmond (1837 -1920)

Edmond Warre was born in London, the son of Henry Warre, of Bindon House, near Milverton, Somerset.  He received his education at Eton, and Balliol College Oxford, where he proved himself an outstanding oarsman.  In 1860 he returned to Eton as an assistant master, and in 1884 became Head Master, a position he retained until 1905.  He took particular interest in sports, and the high standard of rowing which the Eton eights attained was due in a large measure to his coaching.  He was an honorary chaplain to Queen Victoria (1885–1901), and later occupied the same office in the households of King Edward VII and King George V. He was appointed a member of the Royal Victorian Order in 1901, a Companion of the Order of the Bath in the 1905 Birthday Honours, and a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 1910.   Warre married Florence Dora Malet, the granddaughter of Sir Charles Malet, 1st Baronet. He died at Eton at the age of 82.
