Provenance

On 1 May 1957 a letter from the President of the Senate was addressed to Harold Christopher, 4th Baron Tennyson, requesting the transfer of any papers relating to Hallam, 2nd Baron Tennyson and his periods of office as Governor of South Australia and Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.  On 9 May 1957 Lord Tennyson replied, stating his willingness to transfer such papers as were available, and pointing out that although classed as ‘heirlooms’ there was no objection to them being placed in the Commonwealth National Library ‘on permanent loan’.  In March of 1958 the Liaison Officer of the National Library in London reported that he had inspected the material and that arrangements for its shipment to Australia had been made.  The material was received into the National Library early in June 1958, and a letter of thanks was sent to Lord Tennyson on 12 June 1958. 


Scope and Content

Papers of: Hallam, 2nd Baron Tennyson; his wife Audrey Georgina Florence, Lady Tennyson; Alfred Aubrey Tennyson, 2nd son of Hallam; Zacyntha Boyle, mother of Lady Tennyson; and miscellaneous papers.  The papers consist of diaries, commissions, secret despatches, family correspondence, correspondence relating to administration and defence, telegrams, drafts of speeches, accounts, newspaper cuttings, invitations, photographs and passports.

Biographical Note

Hallam, 2nd Baron Tennyson, was the oldest surviving son of Alfred, 1st Baron Tennyson, Poet Laureate, and Emily Tennyson (nee Sollwood).  He was born at Twickenham on 11 August 1852, and educated at Marlborough College, Trinity College Cambridge, and the ‘Inner Temple’.  For many years he acted as his father’s secretary, and following his father’s death and his succeeding to the barony on 6 October 1892, he wrote a memoir of the poet.  Later, as the 2nd Baron Tennyson, he was prepared to accept a colonial governorship – a fact which may not be unrelated to his father’s interest in Imperial Federation.  In 1899 he was appointed Governor and Commander-in-Chief of South Australia.  He took up office on 10 April 1899, and continued in it until 17 July 1902 (from 1 January 1901 – the inauguration of the Australian Commonwealth – the designation ‘Commander-in-Chief’ was omitted from his title). 

Lord Tennyson relinquished his position in South Australia in order to take up the appointment of Acting-Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, following the resignation of the 7th Earl of Hopetoun.  Lord Tennyson served as Acting-Governor-General from17 July 1902 to 9 January 1903, from which latter date he was confirmed in the appointment.  He continued to serve as Governor-General until 21 January 1904 when he returned to England. Lord Tennyson did not undertake any subsequent governorships, although in March 1903 he indicated his readiness to serve as the Governor-General of Canada, and in November 1905 he was offered the governorship of Madras.  In 1901 while still in South Australia, Lord Tennyson was Deputy Governor of the Isle of Wight.

On 25 June 1884 Lord Tennyson married Audrey Georgiana Florence Boyle, daughter of Charles John Boyle and Zacyntha Boyle (née Moore), and had issue –

  1. Lionel Hallam, born 7 November 1889, died 6 June 1951 (3rd Baron Tennyson)
  1. Alfred Aubrey, born 2 May 1891, killed in action March 1918.
  1. Harold Courtenay, born 27 April 1896, killed in action 29 January 1916.

Lady Tennyson died on 7 December 1916.  Lord Tennyson married secondly, Mary Emily widow of Andrew Kinsman Hichens, and daughter of Charles Robert Princep, on 27 July 1918 (she died on 20 July 1931).  Lord Tennyson died on 2 December 1928. 

Lord Tennyson was created K.C.M.G. in 1899 and G.C.M.G. in 1903, and was made a Privy Councillor in 1905.

Series 2      Diaries, 1 Jan – 1 Dec 1903

Entries are both of a private and official nature, and cover part of Lord Tennyson’s term of office as Governor of South Australia, and most of his term as Governor-General.  Pinned to pages of the diaries were many letters received, drafts of letters sent, drafts of speeches, memoranda, newspaper cuttings, and a sketch.  In order to preserve these items, as well as the diaries themselves, the extra items have been removed and maintained separately.  So that the association of the diary entry and any item may not be lost, a note has been placed in the diary at every page from which items have been removed, showing what has been removed.  In addition, each item so removed has been provided with a reference to the page and diary from which it was taken.  Drafts of letters (and telegrams) occur within the diary entries themselves, and it should be noted that some of the dates on the extra items may be outside the period covered by the diaries themselves. 

Indexes to letters received, drafts of letters sent, some of the telegrams and to other miscellaneous material in this series will be found in Appendix 1 (part A and B).
