Tony, what generation do the Baring Gould's belong to?

My interest is that Sabine Baring Gould was the vicar of Mersea Island, in Essex, England, in the latter half of the 19th Century.

He was most famous for penning 'Onward Christian Soldiers', but revered locally as the author of 'Mehalah', a Victorian Melodrama, about a gypsy girl from the marshes fighting the amorous advances of a tyrannical landlord.

I hadn't, until your posting, been aware there were Baring Gould's still about.
