About Henry Nettleship
An English Classical scholar, Nettleship spent most of his working years at Oxford, at two different times (after his marriage in 1870, he taught for a time at Harrow). He was responsible for the completion of John Conington's edition of the poetry of Virgil, after Conington's death; he also created and contributed to Latin lexicographies and classical dictionaries. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mentioned on the St Sepulchre's Cemetery website, where some family members of his wife Matilda were buried:

   Matilda Steel, Mrs Henry Nettleship (born 1842) was living at Harrow at the time of the 1871 census, with her husband Henry, who was still an assistant master at Harrow School, and her widowed mother-in-law Isabella Nettlehip. They moved to Oxford in 1873 when her husband was elected a Fellow of Corpus Christi College, and in 1878 he was appointed the Corpus Professor of Latin. At the time of the 1881 census Matilda (38) and Henry (41) were living at Holywell Vicarage in Oxford with their children Edith (9) and Henry (5), and her niece Adelaide Steel (10) was also staying with them. By 1891 the family had moved to 17 Bradmore Road; but Henry Nettleship died just two years later in 1893. Matilda herself died at Petersfield, Hampshire at the age of 77 in 1920.
