Algernon Freeman-Mitford was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.


Algernon Bertram Freeman-Mitford, nicknamed "Barty/Bertie" was a British diplomat, collector and writer and the paternal grandfather of the Mitford sisters.

In 1886 he inherited the country estate of his 1C2R John Freeman-Mitford 1st Earl of Redesdale, being created the 1st Baron Redesdale in 1902. a condition of the inheritance was that he adopt the surname "Freeman-Mitford".

He, also, was a candidate for Clementine's Paternity : Lady Blanche maintained that Clementine's biological father was Capt. William George "Bay" Middleton, a noted horseman; Mary Soames, Clementine's youngest child, believes this.[1] On the other hand, Clementine's biographer, Joan Hardwick, has surmised (due in part to Sir Henry Hozier's reputed sterility) that all Lady Blanche's "Hozier" children were actually fathered by her sister's husband, Algernon Bertram Freeman-Mitford (1837-1916), better known as a grandfather of the famous Mitford sisters of the 1920s. Whatever her true paternity, Clementine is recorded as being the daughter of Lady Blanche and Sir Henry.
