InfoEsther Cleveland (9 September 1893 - June 25, 1980) was the daughter of American President Grover Cleveland.

Cleveland is the first and only presidential child born in White House. She contracted measles when it spread through the White House, leading to a quarantine. Five years later, she contracted diphtheria.

She made her debut in 1912 and was rumored to be engaged to Randolph D. West shortly after (denied by relatives). In 1918 she married Captain William Sidney Bence Bosanquet of the Coldstream Guards of the British Army. Her husband (born 1893) died on 5 March 1966. Her daughter was the British philosopher Philippa Foot.

Cleveland died in New Hampshire at age 86.

She was born September 9, 1893 and died June 26, 1980. Esther was actually born in the White House. Her wedding to Captain William Sydney Bence Bosanquet, the son of Sir Albert Bosanquet, was held at Westminster Abbey, and became an important international social event. They bore two children and lived most of their lives in Yorkshire. In her latter years, Esther returned to the United States and lived quietly in New Hampshire until her death.
