Bonaparte, Louis Lucien (1813–1891), philologist, was born at Thorngrove, a house in the parish of Grimley, Worcestershire, on 4 January 1813, the sixth child of Lucien Bonaparte, prince of Canino (1775–1840), who was the second surviving brother of the emperor Napoléon I, and his second wife, Alexandrine Jouberthon, née Alexandrine de Bleschamps (1778–1855). On the death of his first wife in March 1891, on 15 June 1891 Bonaparte married Clémence Richard (1830–1915), with whom he had been living for many years. Their only son, known variously as Louis Clavering Clovis Richard and Louis Clavering Clovis, had been born in 1859. On his parents' marriage he was legitimatized by his father and was known as Louis Clovis Bonaparte. By that time, however, Louis Lucien's health was failing and on 3 November 1891 he died from heart failure while staying with his niece at Fano, Italy, whence his body was brought back to London.

Lucien was buried in St Mary's Roman Catholic cemetery at Kensal Green, north-west London.. His son, who adopted the title of prince after his father's death, being known as Prince Louis Clovis Bonaparte, died on 14 May 1894.

I attach a map of our cemetery and the area marked SN with the allocation of numbers 3306-4226 is where the grave is located. With regards ownership, unfortunately I am unable to confirm this as the records prior to 1926 were lost in a fire. frm Burials Reg No REGISTER NUMBER FIRST NAME SURNAME AGE NOTES BROUGHT FROM BURIAL DATE GRAVE NUMBER FEE GRAVE TYPE YEAR: 061423 H.I.H.

I have the information available from the “Find a grave” website but would welcome any further information you may have including that on grave ownership. Louis Lucien Bonaparte was my great grandfather (results of Y DNA testing against living descendants of the Bonaparte Family) and I am collecting the family tree details for the rest of the Clovis family. Please let me know if you require any further information to allow release of my ancestors data.
