Hallam Tennyson, 1852-1928 (British peer, biographer)

* Hallam Tennyson served as the second Governor-General of Australia, 1903-1904. His rising Mars in Libra (hidden in the 12th) and unaspected Pluto were put to the challenge when tensions developed with the Prime Minister, Alfred Deakin, over the ambiguity of Tennyson's position. Unknown to the public, Deakin did not encourage Tennyson to seek an extension of his one-year term and Tennyson left Australia in January 1904 to universal expressions of approval.

BIRTH DATA: 11 August 1852, 09:30 (9:30 AM) GMT (+0), Twickenham, England (51n27, 0w20). ASC: 8 Libra. RR: A (from father's memory). SOURCE: Sy Scholfield quotes his father's letter to Mrs Browning (dated 11 August 1852) transcribed in "Alfred, Lord Tennyson: A Memoir" by Hallam Tennyson (Cambridge University Press, 2012), p. 357: "my wife was delivered of a fine boy at 9.30 a.m. this day."
