Footnotes

  • Lord Thomas Pelham-Clinton (1786-1804) was the second son of Thomas 3rd Duke of Newcastle and the 10th Earl of Lincoln. He was Lieutenant in the 1st regiment of Life Guards. Lord Thomas was posted to Gibraltar some time in 1802 as a letter in this year from his elder brother mentions 'his posting' which suggests that it was a recent occurrence. He died in Gibraltar in 1804 at the age of eighteen. The present lot shows Pelham-Clinton when he was four.

    The brother of Lord Thomas was Henry Pelham-Clinton who became the 4th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne when their father died in 1795. The title passed through the family and upon the death of the last Duke of Newcastle in 1988, it was thought that the title had become extinct. But after an English newpaper researched the Dukes of Newcastle they found that an Australian engineer, Edward Horace Fiennes-Clinton, was a distant relative of the last duke and subsequently inherited the title of 18th Earl of Lincoln.
