It was while her husband was 1 Governor of New Zealand that Lady Ranfurly, as mistress of Wellington House, entertained King George and Queen Mary on their first Colonial tour. A brilliant hostess and a typical Irishwoman, Lady Ranfurly holds a position of much importance in society, and her daughter, Lady Eileen Knox, will be one of Queen Mary's train-bearers at the Coronation. Lady Ranfurly was the Hon. Constance Caulfeild, only child and heiress of Viscount Charlemont, when she married Lord Ranfurly in 1880. She is still remembered with affection by the people of New Zealand, while she has done much to further the interests of the people of Dungannon, an Irish linen town, of which the Earl owns the greater part. Lord and Lady Ranfurly have a beautiful home in County Tyrone, the heir to the earldom being Viscount Northland, their eldest son, who is an officer in the Coldstream Guards. It may be of interest to recall, in this connection, the fact that Lord Ranfurly is a linea' descendant of the famous William Penn, the great and heroic Quaker, who founded the New England State of Pennsylvania.
