I have a very large Wordsworth family tree which included a Rev Bennet Sherard Calcraft Kennedy born 1831 and died 1916 and it is alleged that he is the illigitimate son of Robert Sherard 6th and last Earl of Harborough. In the 1881 census he was living at Stapleford. His wife is Jane Stanley Wordsworth and she is the granddaughter of the Poet William Wordsworth. Living at Algorta, Holdenhurst in Hampshire in 1881 census
One of their sons was Robert Harborough Sherard Kennedy who later dropped his surname and was a best friend of Oscar Wilde and wrote biographies of him and others.
I have lots more about this family if you are interested.
