About Cecil Baring, 3rd Baron Revelstoke

Cecil Baring (3rd Baron Revelstoke) 1864 -1934


Cecil, John's brother was unconventional. He cared little for fashion and had many interests outside Barings, including the natural sciences. He would walk into a rock pool without removing his shoes to see what was there and once swam the river at Niagara Falls. He worked hard for Barings in New York. He then spent time studying the natural world but kept an interest in the business and in 1911 became a partner for Barings in London. Before the outbreak of WW1 the business flourished with interests in Argentina, The United States, Russia and Japan. Whilst Cecil may not have had the business flair of some Barings he was a steady hand, helping the company through the war and economic problems of the late 1920's.
