It is likely that Lord Byron was the father of Elizabeth Medora Leigh, as he is believed to have had an incestuous affair with his half sister, Augusta Leigh. Byron’s former wife, Annabella Milbanke, told Ada that Leigh was her half sister and fathered by Byron. He was also the father of Clara Allegra Byron, the illegitimate daughter of Claire Clairmont (the stepsister of Mary Shelly). The child died of typhus aged five during Byron’s travels in Italy.
There is some controversy as to whether this was entirely her own work or a joint effort with Babbage.
