About Robert Proctor-Beauchamp

Robert was born at Langley Park, in Norfolk England, the home of the Proctor-Beauchamp family. His father was Rear-Admiral Sir William Beauchamp Proctor and his mother was Anne Beauchamp Proctor (Gregory).

Robert is not mentioned in Burke's Peerage for what I see. His brother was the one to change the name, against the last wishes of the Great Uncle George Proctor wishing to preserve his name as he had no immediate heirs. The name went from Beauchamp-Proctor to Proctor-Beauchamp. Roberts children bar one, reverted yet again, to Beauchamp-Proctor and again to just Beauchamp in some records of death, listed bellow where possible.

Born into a privileged family, Beauchamp married Elizabeth Symons, after travelling between England, New Zealand and Victoria for a number of years. They finally settled outside of Launceston, Tasmania and it was from here that Beauchamp exhibited his paintings - in Melbourne, Launceston and Otago, New Zealand.

Children of Robert and Elizabeth were: • Cecil Beauchamp PROCTOR • Laura Gertrude BEAUCHAMP-PROCTOR • Francis S BEAUCHAMP • Reginald Percy BEAUCHAMP-PROCTOR • Albert Edwin BEAUCHAMP-PROCTOR • Albert Victor BEAUCHAMP-PROCTOR
