* Lady Caroline's cousin, Anne Isabella Milbanke, whom Byron married. The marriage was not happy, but produced one daughter, Ada Byron. Ada later married the Earl of Lovelace, becoming known as "Ada Lovelace". Anne regarded Lord Byron's brooding Romanticism as a form of insanity, and so raised Ada with a focus on logic and mathematics; as a result, Ada came to be interested in the sciences, and worked with Charles Babbage in his development of mechanical computing machines. When Babbage designed his (never-built) Analytical Engine, it was Ada who recognised the possibility that these machines could be used to manipulate any kind of information, and not simply conduct elaborate mathematical calculations; she also wrote the world's first computer program (which was never run, as it was written for the Analytical Engine). She thus becamethe person after whom the programming language Ada was named in recognition of the oft-overlooked contribution of women to computer science. All at least in part because Lord Byron's wife thought Lord Byron was mad.

This is an incomplete list. In addition, Byron was [[AnythingThatMoves bisexual]], and had homosexual lovers as a young man. He is a good real life example of an UpperClassWit.

His childhood was fertile ground for what he became. His father, Army Captain John "Mad Jack" Byron, of a junior line of moderately old gentry family[[note]]the male-line ancestors of the 1st Baron Byron--Lord Byron's great-great-great uncle--had been knights at least as far back as his great-great-grandfather in the 15th century.[[/note]] married his mother, Catherine Gordon (heiress to the Scottish estate of Gight, in Aberdeenshire), in 1785. By the time George was born in 1788, "Mad Jack" had squandered most of Catherine's money, and she took her son to Aberdeen to eke out an existence on the remaining crumbs and a small trust fund; "Mad Jack" would die of tuberculosis in 1791. When Byron's great-uncle, the 5th Baron Byron, died childless, George, then 10 years old, inherited the title and the family seat at Newstead Abbey--which was a wreck that his mother preferred to rent out to junior gentry. Not that she spent it well--she alternately spoiled George and spoiled herself, could be very stubborn, and was generally lacking in judgment.
