Roger C Tichborne, Alleged to have been lost in the 'Bella'.' Photo of reverse available on request. Ink inscription on the reverse which reads 'Purchased in July 1871'. Roger Charles Doughty-Tichborne (1829-1854?) was the eldest son of Sir James Tichborne, 10th Bt and his wife Harriette-Felicite, Roger was raised in Paris by his mother, until his father brought him to England in 1845. Educated at Stonyhurst College, he later joined the 6th Dragoon Guards. He spent his leave with his uncle Sir Edward Doughty, 9th Bt and aunt Katherine at Tichborne House, where he fell in love with his cousin, Katherine ('Kattie') Doughty. Her parents resisted the romance and later suggested they wait until Kattie came of age. With this delay, Roger left the army in 1853 to travel in South America. He was last seen boarding a ship, the Bella, bound for Kingston, Jamaica from Rio de Janeiro in 1854. The ship was wrecked with no known survivors.
