Person  Male  Born 15/3/1849  Died 18/6/1934

Grandson of the first Duke. Inherited the title and estates when his childless brother died in 1900. A serving officer of the Grenadier Guards rising through the ranks from Ensign to Colonel but he never saw active service, his duties being mainly ceremonial. Died Ewhurst Park, Basingstoke, with great timing - on Waterloo Day.

(Reminds us of Richard Cromwell who arranged to marry, in the Banqueting Hall, on the 65th anniversary of the death of his ancestor, Oliver.)
