  • Notes 
    • Samuel Tertius, though less distinguished, was not an exception to the rule of scientific endeavour in his family.

      Galton also inherited his father's considerable business interests and quickly set about making changes - discontinuing the family's armaments business in 1815. Though fascinated by economics (he wrote papers on the subject) Samuel preferred to be less 'hands-on' in the running of the business than his father and spent much of his time living off the revenue of his considerable estate.
