Chatelaine of three of the most stately homes of England - Seaham Hall, Sunderland; Mount Stewart, co. Down; and Wynyard Park, Stockton, in addition to Londonderry House, Park Lane (one of the finest of town resi-dences) - Lady Londonderry has earned the reputation of being a wonderful hostess. Indeed, such a high opinion of Lady Londonderry did the late King Edward have that on the occasion of the Kaiser's first State visit to this country, she was asked by his Majesty to give a banquet for him at Londonderry House, which she did with tremendous success. Lady Londonderry, who is a sister of the present Earl of Shrewsbury, was married in 1875, and has one son, Viscount Castlereagh, and one daughter, who is now the Countess of Ilchester. Although her ladyship takes a leading part in society, she has found time for a great deal of charitable work, particularly in Ireland, where she has done much to develop the cottage industries of the poor. When at her Irish home, Lady Londonderry does a great deal of boating on the lough, sailing and steering in a very seaman-like fashion.
