      What connection between the Fane and Chamberlain Families?
      Is Henry the illegimate son of Sir Henry Fane (1739-1802)?
      Apparently raised in this family as a distant relative until told of his origins in his late teens. See "The Japanologist" by his grandson Basil Hall Chamberlain.

      Need to see if John Chamberlain Henry's "father" left a will or the Articles of Settlement between John and Hannah Chamberlain?
