The Tennysons were an old Lincolnshire family settled at Bayon's Manor.
The new incumbent was willing that the Tennysons should continue to live in the rectory, which they did not leave until six years later.
In 1837, to their great distress, the Tennysons were turned out of the Lincolnshire rectory where they had lived so long.
In 1840 the Tennysons moved to Tunbridge Wells, and a year later to Boxley, near Maidstone, to be close to Edmund Lushington, who had now married Cecilia Tennyson.
The home of the Tennysons was now at Cheltenham: on his occasional visits to London he was in the habit of seeing Thackeray, Coventry Patmore, Browning and Macready, as well as older friends, but he avoided "society."
