Henry Thomas Foley, 5th Baron Foley

Henry Thomas Foley, 5th Baron Foley (4 December 185017 December 1905), was a British peer.

Foley was the son of Thomas Henry Foley, 4th Baron Foley, and Lady Mary Charlotte Howard, the daughter of Henry Charles Howard, 13th Duke of Norfolk. [ [http://www.thepeerage.com/p5357.htm thePeerage.com] ] When his father died in 1869, he inherited his title and wealth.

In 1872, Foley purchased a considerable amount of land at Claygate, Surrey. At the core of this was Ruxley Lodge, "...a delightful family mansion moderate in size, but replete with comfort and convenience..." Lord Foley added the west wing, with its octagonal tower, turrets and gargoyles making it almost twice as large. The castellated building was renamed Ruxley Towers. [ [http://www.exploringsurreyspast.org.uk/GetRecord/SHHER_7027 Exploring Surrey's Past - Historic Environment Record] ] Foley created extensive housing developments in Claygate with the coming of the railway in the area of Foley Road and Fitzalan Road (named after his brother). [Claygate Parish Council "Claygate Heritage Trail" (Leaflet)]

Foley married Evelyne Vaughan Radford, daughter of Arthur Radford, on 25 October 1899 in London. They had no children and when he died at Ruxley Lodge aged 55, he was succeeded by his brother.
