Stanley Lane-Poole

Jijel in 1664 by Stanley Lane-Poole

Stanley Edward Lane-Poole (18 December 1854 – 29 December 1931) was a British orientalist and archaeologist.[1]


Lane Poole was Born in London, England, the eldest of three children (two sons and a daughter) of Edward Stanley Poole (1830–1867) and his wife, Roberta Elizabeth Louisa (1828–1866), daughter of Charles Reddelien, a naturalized German. His paternal grandmother Sophia Lane Poole, uncle Reginald Stuart Poole and great-uncle Edward William Lane were famous for their work in orientalism and archaeology. His other great-uncle was Richard James Lane, a distinguished Victorian lithographer and engraver. His brother Reginald Lane Poole was an archivist and historian. Both his mother and father died during his childhood, so Poole and his siblings were raised by their grandmother Sophia Lane Poole and their great-uncle Edward William Lane.[2][3] From 1874 to 1892 he worked in the British Museum, and after that in Egypt researching on Egyptian archaeology. From 1897 to 1904 he had a chair as Professor of Arabic studies at Trinity College Dublin.

He was married to Charlotte Bell Wilson from 1879 until her death in 1905. The couple had three sons and a daughter; his eldest son predeceased him while of his other two sons, Richard was a Royal Navy officer and Charles was a forester who did much work in Australia.[2][4]
