Abstract :
Presents financial and other documentary evidence which suggests Lord Leighton fathered an illegitimate child, one Frederick (Fred) James George Mason (1875-1953). The boy's mother was Louisa (Lily) Mason who was apparently an artists' model in the early 1870s. For the rest of his life, Leighton was on friendly terms with the Masons and provided them with a regular income. Both Leighton and his sister, Augusta Matthews, made substantial bequests to Lily and Fred. ;
