Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk

(1847-1917), Postmaster General

Sitter in 18 portraits
Henry Fitzalan-Howard came from a long line of Catholic Dukes of Norfolk. After the Catholic Relief Act of 1829, his grandfather, Henry Charles, was the first Catholic to sit in the House of Lords since the Reformation. He succeeded to the title in 1860 and undertook a programme of philanthropy that served in part to reintegrate Roman Catholics into civic life. Norfolk donated over 160 acres of parks and recreation grounds to Sheffield and was one of the founders and first Chancellor of the University of Sheffield. Although he was a unionist, Norfolk made substantial donations to Roman Catholic schools and churches in Ireland. He served as Postmaster General from 1895 to 1900.
