Wellesley, dsp Marquis of ??, Col. in Army (1851). The Cork Examiner, 1 January 1864 - NATIONAL OBITUARY FOR THE YEAR 1863. ---------- Death, whom it is said "opens the gate of Fame, and shuts the gate of Envy after him," has been more than usually busy amongst us during the year that has just closed, and it may prove profitable and interesting to call to mind the names of the principal persons belonging to (or who had been connected with) our country who have been taken from us, and thus to assist in perpetuating the names of those who have been distinguished in the great community of mankind. Foremost among them may be mentioned : William, sixth Earl of Mornington, grand nephew to the Duke of Wellington, aged 49 years. Leaving no heir, his title merge to the Duke of Wellington ; who thus, in addition to being a peer of Great Britain, of Spain, of Portugal, and of the Netherlands, becomes what his father was not--a peer of Ireland.
