Scott, Freeborn County Standard Albert Lea, Minnesota July 20, 1882 AN IRISH LANDLORD Something About the Marquis of Clanricarde and His Irish Estates. Most Irishmen who know anything of the personal character of the Marquis of Clanricarde will regret that if there was to be a murder like that of Thursday week the victim should not have been the landlord himself rather than his old agent and his bailiff. Lord Clanricarde is the only surviving descendant of the great orator, George Canning, Pitt's protege who married one of the three daughters of the famous gambling Scotchman, general John Scott, who pursued a regime of perfect abstinence from drink in order that he might fleece the less temperate players of that generation. General Scott accumulated a fortune large enough to give each of his daughters a million sterling, and as Canning was penniless, his marriage set him on his feet at once. Another daughter of General Scott married the Duke of Portland, father of the late eccentric bearer of title and joined her family name with that of the Bentincks, and the third heiress was captured by the Earl of Moray. George Canning's only daughter inherited all the immense fortune of her mother on the death of her brother, Viscount Canning, in 1862. She had married the father of the present Lord Clanricarde and her brother's private estate went to her second son, who, on the death of his older brother, about eight years ago, came into the title and estates. The family name of the Clanricardes is De Burgh, to which Canning was added on the marriage with the heiress.
