Major Lionel Nathan de Rothschild [1882-1942] was a British banker and politician, the son of the eldest son of Leopold de Rothschild (1845-1917), and part of the prominent Rothschild banking family in England. In 1910, he was elected to the House of Commons. In 1917, he was a partner in establishing the anti-Zionist league of British Jews. In 1919, Lionel acquired the Exbury House estate in Hampshire, where he invested time and a substantial amount of money to make it one of the most beautiful and flourishing gardens in all of England, with over a million plants. In the 1920s, he built Exbury House around an existing structure in the Neo-Georgian style. He also built a private railway to transport rocks to build the largest rock garden in the country. Upon his passing, he was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Willesden.
