Louis Baillon’s father was a native of Nottingham who immigrated to the Falklands to become a sheep farmer. He married there in 1876 and Louis was the second of five children born on the Islands. Although the Crown Grant issued to the Baillon family in 1885 for a farm knows as the Fox Bay West was not conveyed to the Falkland Islands Company by Louis Baillon until 1939, he had returned to England as a youth. He settled in Northampton and was married there in 1910. The marriage produced one daughter and four sons, two of whom were killed in the Battle of Britain. Baillon enjoyed a successful business career, becoming a director of Phipps Brewery. Louis Baillon was an outstanding sportsman. He played hockey for Northampton and won nine caps for England at left-back, he played football for Wandsworth AFC and, at the age of 50, he still held his place in the Northants county lawn tennis team.
