      "Note:
      According to my Dundas family records, Jane Hope (1766 - 1829) became thesecond wife of Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville, in 1793. Melville'sfirst wife, Elizabeth Rannie, divorced him ostensibly because he spent somuch time in London that he was never home in Scotland. Melville and JaneHope had no children."
