118 Francis Douglas was the eldest son of the 9th Marquess of Queensberry. Until 1893, Douglas was known by the courtesy title of Viscount Drumlanrig. As a young man, he was a lieutenant in the Coldstream Guards.

In 1892, William Gladstone became Prime Minister for the fourth and last time. The Foreign Secretary in his administration was Archibald Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery. Rumours abound as to Rosebery's sexuality; although married with four children, it was often rumoured that he was bisexual. Whatever the truth of these rumours, there is no doubt that he made Francis Douglas his protégé. He was introduced to Rosebery around 1892 and, in spite of any obvious qualifications, Rosebery appointed him to be his private secretary. Seeking to advance his young friend, Rosebery obtained for him the position of a Lord-in-Waiting to Queen Victoria. To qualify for this role, Francis needed to be a peer in his own right and he was accordingly created Baron Kelhead in June 1893.

Francis' father, the hot-headed Marquess of Queensberry and later bane of Oscar Wilde, was furious when his son was given entry into the House of Lords. Because Queensberry held no English titles, he had to rely upon being elected as a representative peer of Scotland in order to sit in the Lords. Although he had been a representative peer between 1872 and 1880, his fellow peers declined to re-elect him in 1880, due to his publicly professed atheism. Between 1880 and 1893, Queensberry found himself embroiled in a number of scandals, further details of which can be found at the foot of the page containing details of his peerage. When he heard of Rosebery's plan to elevate his son to the House of Lords, his reaction was typically violent. He wrote angry letters to Gladstone and Rosebery. He even wrote to the Queen, complaining of Rosebery's 'bad influence' on his son, which was probably an oblique accusation of homosexuality.

Soon after Francis' promotion, the Marquess pursued Rosebery to Bad Homburg in Germany where Rosebery was holidaying with the Prince of Wales. Queensberry, armed with a dog whip, was found lurking near Rosebery's hotel and the next day the local police chief was able to report to Rosebery that Queensberry had 'found it advisable to depart this morning with the 7 o'clock train for Paris.' However, news of the attempted assault started tongues wagging about the nature of the relationship between Rosebery and Lord Kelhead.

During the summer of 1894, Francis became engaged to a young woman named Alix Ellis. In October of that year, he accepted an invitation for a weekend's shooting at Quantock Lodge,near Bridgwater, the home of Alix's uncle, Edward Stanley (MP for Somerset West 1882-1885and Bridgwater 1885-1906). On 19 October, while out with his fellow shooters, he went intothe next field. After a few minutes, his companions heard a shot and, hurrying into the field,found Francis dead from a gunshot wound. At the subsequent inquest, the coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death, although public opinion was widely in favour of suicide.

Having lost one son in circumstances surrounded by rumours of homosexuality, it is possible that Queensberry was determined not to lose another, which may explain his implacablepersecution of Oscar Wilde six months later.

Waddell Cunningham was certainly a prosperous merchant but uncomplimentary stories about him and his business practices abound He was born in 1729 and made his fortune largely by trading with America However he also had interests in a vitriol works, malting and brewery, his stores being with his house and garden in Hercules Lane, approximately where the Provincial Bank and St Mary's Hall now stand He was a member of the Second Presbyterian Congregation in Rosemary Street, He was a magistrate and in 1770 during the Hearts of Steel land agitation was responsible for the arrest of David Douglas from the Templepatrick area Douglas was lodged in the town barracks and on Sunday 23 December angry farmers marched in from Templepatrick Meeting House to organise a rescue bid They looted and burned Waddell Cunningham's house and only ceased when 5 of their number had been shot and the prisoners given up by the soldiers One cause of the violence was the fact that Waddell Cunningham with others was involved in buying up large areas of land Altogether he acquired 150 acres in Ballynagarry [Belfast] and 370 in Ballypalliday [Templepatrick], though it seems that this was not snatched from tenant farmers but had already been in the possession of other middlemen Although the amount of the fines for new leases and the rises in rents has been greatly exagerated, the transfers of leases were to raise money for the fifth Earl of Donegal] and Cunningham incurred much of the wrath of the farmers Waddell Cunningham was made a Freeman of Belfast on 21 September 1773, The next phase in Waddell Cunningham's life which is reported is the statement by R M Young that At the time of the American Revolution, he [Cunningham], sent out numerous well found vessels consigned to the British; but invariably they were captured afterwards that he had insured them well, and by a business like arrangement got not only the insurance, but the price of the hulls and cargo from the Americans, who captured them as prearranged The most celebrated reference to him is in connection with his trying to raise funds for a slave trading venture c 1786 However any documentation on it dates from a reference of 1806 to an alleged letter from Thomas McCabe to Dr William Drennan
