LUBBOCK, Sib John, Bart., M.P., P.E.S., was born at 29, Eaton Place, London, April 30, 1834, being the son and heir of Sir John WilUam Lubbock, of Mitcham Grove, Surrey, and High Elms,

Down, Kent, a gentleman eminent as an astronomer and a mathema- tician, by his wife Harriet, daughter of Lieut.-Col. George Hotham, of York.
