John Thomas Ibbetson (1789-1869) Later Sir John Thomas Selwyn, 6th Bart. (sometimes Selwin)

Born in 1780, younger son of Sir James Ibbetson, 2nd Bart. (c.1741-1795) and his wife Jane, daughter of John Caygill and his wife Jane Selwyn.  He married at Nacton, Suffolk on 8 September 1825, Isabella, who died 24 September 1858, daughter of General John Leveson Gower and his wife Isabella Mary, second daughter of Philip Bowes Broke (d.1802), and had one son Sir Henry John Selwyn-Ibbetson (1826-1902), later 1st Lord Rookwood, who unsuccessfully contested Ipswich in the elections of 1857 and 1859.

Under the terms of his mother’s will John Thomas Ibbetson changed his name legally in 1825 to John Thomas Selwin, and on the death of his nephew, the 5th baronet, succeeded as 6th Baronet Ibbetson on 6 July 1861.  He lived many years at Bosmere Hall, Creeting St. Mary, Suffolk and painted watercolours of many views in the area, many of his or his relations property and his sister Harriet of Henley Hall, who died on 30 October 1843, aged 67, was buried in Henley Church, Suffolk.  On inheriting the title he also became the owner of Down Hall, Hatfield Heath, Essex where he died on 20 March 1869, aged 84.
