  • Notes 
    • Charles Semple writes:
      "The subject was, technically, NOT the 9th, 10th, or any "numbered"Lord. He merely "shared" in the management and responsibility, but,tried to get a recognized "Lordship". I haven't found the detailedtranscript, but, what I've been told is that he should have been servedthe 9th Lordship. Seemingly what happened is that he was out of thecountry and had no control over when Ann became 9th Baroness.

      I'm still verifying and searching that.
