Contact for F. C. (Francis Cowley) Burnand, Sir   1836-1917

The will of Sir Francis Cowley Burnand (probate London, 3 July 1917) divides his copyrights and acting rights between four members of his large family: Dame Rosina Burnand, Charles Hubert Burnand, Cuthbert Cowley Burnand and Tinsley Lindley. It is therefore likely that any surviving copyrights would now be extremely fragmented in ownership. Burnand was a knight, not a baronet, so there is no information about his family in standard reference works such as 'Burke's peerage' and 'Debrett's'. Unpublished works may remain in copyright in the UK until 2040, but are out of copyright in the USA from 2003.
