Wilfred Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne Blunt co-founded the Crabbet Arabian Stud, which under their only surviving child of the marriage, Judith (later Lady Wetworth), the word "Crabbet" became synonymous the world over with the highest possible class of Arab horse. Kings and commoners alike made their way to the Stud in Sussex, and there is scarcely a country where Arabians are bred that does not rely on Crabbet blood. Lady Anne was the daughter of Ada Lovelace who is credited with being the world’s first computer programmer, with a computer programming language (Ada) named after her – this is still in use by the United States Department of Defense.
