Angela Georgiana Burdett-Coutts (1814-1906), Baroness Burdett-Coutts (created 1871), was the daughter of Sir Francis Burdett and the granddaughter of the banker Thomas Coutts. In 1837, on the death of Coutts's widow, she inherited a fortune and she became one of the greatest philanthropists of her age. A strong supporter of the Anglican Church, she gave money for the erection of churches in London and also endowed several colonial bishoprics, including the See of Adelaide. She was a friend of Sir James Brooke and supported some of his enterprises in Sarawak.
