Harry Craven Sneyd-Kynnersley (b.1865 d.1940) was the third son of Clement Thomas Sneyd-Kynnersley (b.1833 d.1876). He married Laura Emma Chamberlain Todd in 1894 (divorced). He married his second wife, Laura Beatrice Williams in 1924.
*The “usual” blazon for Sneyd is with the handle in bend sinister, yet the bookplate it is displayed palewise. The 1929 edition of Armorial Families has an entry for Sneyd-Kynnersley with the handle in bend sinister. However, the Arms of Kynnersley are displayed and given as “Azure semee of cross crosslets a lion rampant Argent.”
