Woolf Barnato (1895-1948) inherited a fortune at the age of two, when his father drowned. He was a race car driver and a first-class cricketer. During the First World War, he was an artillery officer; during the Second World War, he was a Wing Commander in the RAF.

His marriage to Miss Jack Claridge Quealy was his second one, and produced two sons. They divorced in 1947. A few months after Barnato remarried, he passed away from a thrombosis after an operation for cancer.
