Charles Rodolph Joseph Francis Taaffe, 10th Viscount Taaffe
The Taaffe family had, since the late seventeenth century, resided primarily in the Holy Roman
Empire, where many of them had risen to powerful positions in the army and at court. During the
reign of the Empress Maria Theresa, the 6th Viscount Taaffe was created a Count of the Holy
Roman Empire.
Following the death of the 9th Viscount in 1855, the peerage was claimed by Charles, eldest son
of the 9th Viscount. After protracted legal argument on whether Charles was not an alien and
therefore unable to inherit the peerage, he won his case, as was reported in 'The Morning Post'
of 20 August 1860:-
'This case was, after three years' litigation, decided on Friday last by the Committee for Privileges
of the House of Lords, in favour of the claimant......The claimant, Charles, tenth Viscount Taaffe,
and Baron of Ballymote, a count of the Holy Roman Empire, and a general in the Austrian service,
is a representative of one of the most ancient families in Ireland. Sir Richard Taaffe was a warrior
at the time of Edward I, and at the end of the thirteenth century one of the family was Arch-
bishop of Armagh. In the Civil War the Taaffes were staunch and gallant cavaliers. Their
viscountcy was obtained from Charles I in commemoration of Sir William Taaffe's victory over the
Spaniards at Kinsale. Charles II raised Theobald, second Viscount Taaffe, who was a formidable
foe of Cromwell, to an earldom, as Earl of Carlingford, but that title is now extinct. Latterly the
Lords Taaffe have resided in Austria, and have been great people there, one of the family being
the famous Nicholas Count Taaffe who beat the Turks at Belgrade. Of the claimant's (the present
Viscount Taaffe's) pedigree there was no doubt before the Lords, but some difficulty arose as to
whether the long residence in Austria of the family had not made them aliens. Lord Taaffe was,
however, able to show, after considerable argument as to the admission of certain evidence,
that his grandfather Rodolph, the seventh viscount, was born in London, and thus, by virtue of
an act of George III, he himself had become a British subject......'

Ford Grey, 3rd Baron Grey of Werke and later 1st and only Earl of Tankerville
of the creation of 1695
Grey was tried in November 1682 for "conspiring to ruin the Earl of Berkeley's daughter." The
following account of the affair is taken from "Romance of London" by John Timbs [3 vols, Richard
Bentley, London 1865]:-
'This unfortunate lady, whose beauty and attraction proved her ruin, was 5th daughter of George,
1st Earl of Berkeley. Mary, her eldest sister, married, in the reign of King Charles II, Ford, Lord
Grey, of Werke - a nobleman of infamous memory, and to whose artifices the Lady Henrietta fell
a victim. It seems that he encouraged a passion for her when she was a girl, and basely taking
advantage of the opportunities which his alliance with her family afforded, succeeded in effecting
her ruin when she was little more than seventeen. After she had acknowledged an affection for
him, the intrigue was continued about a year without discovery, but with great risk; and, on one
occasion, as he himself confessed, he was two days locked in her closet without food, except a
little sweetmeats. At length the suspicions of the Countess of Berkeley being excited by some
trivial accident, she commanded her third daughter, Lady Arabella, to search her sister's room;
on which the latter delivered up a letter she had just been writing to Lord Grey, to this effect:-
"My sister Bell did not suspect our being together last night, for she did not hear the noise. Pray
come again on Sunday or Monday; if the last, I shall be very impatient."
'This disclosure took place at Berkeley House, in London; and every precaution was taken to
prevent correspondence or any clandestine meeting between the parties; notwithstanding which,
Lady Henrietta contrived to elope from Durdanes, a seat of the Berkeleys near Epsom, and to
join Lord Grey in London, with whom she resided, for a short time, in a lodging-house at Charing
Cross.
The Earl of Berkeley then indicted him, and several other persons, for conspiring to ruin his
daughter, by seducing her from her father's house. The trial came on, in November 1682, at
Westminster Hall; and, after a most affecting scene, the Lady Henrietta being herself present,
and making oath that she had left home of her own accord, the jury were preparing to withdraw
to consider their verdict, when a new tone was given to the proceedings by the lady declaring,
in opposition to her father's claim of her person, that "she would not go with him, that she was
married, and under no restraint, and that her husband was then in court." A Mr. Turner, son of
Sir William Turner, then stepped forward and declared himself married to the lady. Sergeant
Jeffries then endeavoured to prove that Turner had been married before to another person, then
alive, and who had children by him; but in this he failed. Turner then asserted there were
witnesses ready to prove his marriage with Lady Henrietta, but the Earl of Berkeley disputed the
Court having the cognizance of marriages, and desired that his daughter might be delivered up
to him. The Lord Chief Justice saw no reason but his lordship might take his daughter; but Justice
Dolben maintained they could not dispose of any other man's wife, and they said they were
married. The Lord Chief Justice then declared the lady free for her father to take her; and that
if Mr. Turner thought he had a right to the lady, he might take his course. The lady then
declared she would go with her husband, to which the Earl replied, "Hussey, you shall go with
me." It was then asked if Lord Grey might be discharged of his imprisonment. Sergeant Jeffries
objected; to which the Chief Justice replied:- "How can we do that, brother? The commitment
upon the writ is but till the body be produced; there she is, and says she is under no restraint."
It was then argued that the lady was properly the plaintiff, that Lord Grey could not be detained
in custody, but that he should give security to answer the suit. Accordingly, he was bailed out.
Then followed:-
'Earl of Berkeley - My Lord, I desire I may have my daughter again. L.C.J. - My Lord, we do not
hinder you. You may take her. Lady Henrietta - I will go with my husband. Earl of Berkeley -
Then, all that are my friends, seize her, I charge you. L.C.J. - Nay, let us have no breaking of
the Peace in the Court.
'Despite, however, of this warning of the Chief Justice, Lord Berkeley, again claiming his daughter,
and attempting to seize her by force in the Hall, a great scuffle ensued, and swords were drawn
on both sides. At this critical moment the Court broke up, and the Judge, passing by, ordered his
tipstaff to take Lady Henrietta into custody and convey her to the King's Bench, whither Mr.
Turner accompanied her. On the last day of term she was released by order of the Court, and
the business being, in some way, arranged among the parties during the vacation, the lawsuit
was not persevered in.'
The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states that Turner was Grey's servant, the inference
being that Turner's claim to be Lady Henrietta's husband was a put-up job designed to get Grey
off the hook.
The special remainder to the Earldom of Temple of Stowe
From the "London Gazette" of 12 January 1822 (issue 17781, page 59):-
"The King has been pleased to direct letters patent to be passed under the Great Seal, for
granting the dignities of a Marquess and Duke of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
to Richard Marquess of Buckingham, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, and the heirs
male of his body lawfully begotten, by the names, styles, and titles of Marquess of Chandos and
Duke of Buckingham and Chandos.
Not mentioned in the Gazette notice is the Earldom of Temple of Stowe, which was created in
the same patent. While the Marquessate and Dukedom have the ordinary limitation of heirs male
of the body, the Earldom has a special remainder, as follows:-
"Failing heirs male of his body (1) to the heirs male of the body of Hester, some time Countess
Temple, deceased, great-grandmother of the said Richard, Marquess of Buckingham with
remainder (2) of the dignity of Countess Temple of Stowe to Anne Eliza Brydges-Chandos-
Temple-Grenville, only daughter of Richard Plantagenet Brydges-Chandos-Temple-Grenville, Esq.,
called Earl Temple, only son of the said Richard Marquess of Buckingham; and, after her
decease and in default of such issue as well of the said Richard as of the said Hester (3), the
dignity of Earl Temple unto the heirs male of the body of the said Anne Eliza Brydges-Chandos-
Temple-Grenville, and in default of such issue of the said Anne Eliza as of the said Richard and
the said Hester (4), the dignity of Countess Temple to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and every other
daughter of the said Richard Plantagenet Brydges-Chandos-Temple-Grenville, with (5) remainder
of the dignity of Earl Temple of Stowe to the issue male of such daughters."
The Earldom descended with the Dukedom until 1889 when all peerages except the Earldom of
Temple of Stowe became extinct. Under the special remainder the Earldom passed to William
Stephen Gore-Langton, who was the first son and heir of the Anne Eliza mentioned above.
Henry Francis Roper-Curzon, 14th Baron Teynham
Teynham was convicted in May 1833 of conspiracy to obtain money by false pretences.
The following report appeared in the "Preston Chronicle" of 18 May 1833:-
'This was an indictment for a conspiracy with an intent to obtain D16971,400 from the prosecutor
(Didimus Langford) under the pretence of providing a place for him under Government.
'Sir James Scarlett appeared for the prosecution, and stated that the prosecutor was
possessed, in 1828, of a sum of money, about 2000 or 3000, and he was anxious to dispose
of it in such a way as to get some situation under Government, from which he might derive
a certain emolument. He mentioned his wish to a friend, and he got introduced to [a man
named] Donlan, when it was stated that a situation could be obtained for him for 1,500.
Donlan introduced the prosecutor to Lord Teynham, and he represented that the noble lord
was a person who could get him a situation. Upon the first introduction which passed between
Lord Teynham and Mr. Langford, it did not appear that Lord Teynham was to participate in
any part of the money; but from the evidence it appeared that frequent interviews took place
afterwards, and Mr. Langford had then no doubt but that Lord Teynham was to receive part
of the sum. Mr. Langford relied upon the promises he had received, and the manner in which
Lord Teynham, a peer of the realm, had taken him by the hand. Under these circumstances,
when he was told that the situation was sure, Mr. Langford was induced to sell out his stock,
and having converted it into Bank notes, handed it over to Donlan. No situation was obtained,
no part of the money was refunded, and from the whole transaction it would seem that there
had been a conspiracy to obtain the money from the prosecutor, without any intention or
ability to procure for him a situation under Government, as had been held out to him.
'On the part of the defendants it was not denied that Donlan had received one thousand
four hundred pounds, but that it was a loan; and that, although Donlan had promised that he
would endeavour to get the prosecutor a situation, yet that there was no bargain made
between them. Several letters from the prosecutor were put to prove that 700 had been
returned to him; but the hand-writing of the prosecutor could not be identified.
'The Chief Justice summed up, and read over the whole of the evidence. His Lordship observed
that the prosecutor was either a very silly man, or else a most perjured man. The difficulty,
in cases of conspiracy, was to draw the distinction between the acts of one and the other; and
the Jury would therefore be careful, in weighing the evidence as relating to each of the
defendants.
'The Jury found both the defendants, Lord Teynham and Mr. Donlan, Guilty - Judgment deferred.'
Lord Teynham appealed this verdict and obtained a new trial, but I have been unable to find
any reporting of such new trial. It would seem that the matter simply went away and that
Lord Teynham was never sentenced for his role in this matter.
Sackville Tufton, 9th Earl of Thanet
In May 1798, Arthur O'Connor, a member of the Society of United Irishmen, was arrested while
travelling to France with Father James Coigley and three other United Irishmen. The prisoners
were subsequently tried for high treason at Maidstone. Among the people who were present at
this trial was the Earl of Thanet, who was charged with having created a riot in an attempt to
rescue O'Connor. The report on his subsequent trial is taken from the 'New Universal Magazine'
for May 1799:-
'Mr. Attorney-General [Sir John Scott,later 1st Earl of Eldon], in behalf of the prosecution, stated
in May last [i.e. May 1798], five persons were tried at Maidstone, by special commission, on a
charge of high treason; that four of them were acquitted, but that Mr. O'Connor, against whom
a subsequent warrant had been issued by the Secretary of State, on a charge of other
treasonable offences, had attempted to make his escape, in which he was assisted by the
defendants.
'The evidence of Mr. Sergeant Shepherd was the most material. He was one of the special
commissioners on the trial, and stated, that when the verdict of not guilty was pronounced,
some persons in court remarked that the prisoners were of course discharged, which was
contradicted by others, Mr. O'Connor had his knee upon the bar, endeavouring to get over, but
was restrained, the police officers advancing toward him at the same time. The court was then
asked whether the prisoners who had been acquitted were not to be discharged? - To this
question Mr. Justice Buller replied in the negative, saying that there were to be detained in
prison; and one of the police officers at the same instant remarked that he had a warrant against
Mr. O'Connor signed by the Secretary of State.
'The judge then proceeded to pass sentence on [Father James] Coigley; toward the conclusion
of which Lord Thanet and Mr. O'Brien looked up to O'Connor, and Mr. O'Brien cast his eye toward
the seat below, with an inclination of his head; but Lord Thanet was not observed to make any
motion. At the conclusion of the judge's sentence O'Connor put his left foot upon the bar, his left
hand upon Mr. O'Brien's shoulder, and his right hand on Lord Thanet's, and leaped over the bar
between the two gentlemen. The police officers were at that moment pressing forward to take
O'Connor into custody. There was an outcry of "stop him;" but Lord Thanet stood in the way,
and held up a stick with both his hands over his head.
'Much confusion now ensued, and many persons got upon the table;- the police people
endeavoured to lay hold of O'Connor, while others were strenuous to prevent them; a general riot
and confusion prevailed in that part of the court, but O'Connor was at length stopped and
brought to the bar. A person on the table drew a sabre, which was among the prisoner's
baggage, apparently with a view to defend the judges. Some persons appealed to the judges to
know whether it was a legal warrant; while others endeavoured to assuage the tumult. Mr.
Sheridan was at the time in conversation with the judges. On Mr. Shepherd being asked whether
any order had been given by the court to detain O'Connor, he remarked that he thought the
court gave a broad hint that he should not be discharged.
'On cross-examination, the evidence admitted that Lord Thanet remained in the same situation
during the time of O'Connor's getting out of the bar, and until he held up the stick, which he
seemed to do in defence of himself.
'Lord Romney deposed that at the time O'Connor leapt over the bar, he saw a person with a
drawn sword, and thinking that the business was becoming very serious, when O'Connor was
brought back, he ordered the javelin-men to form themselves around him, telling him that he
[O'Connor] was not acquitted, but meaning thereby that he was not discharged; the noble lord
attributing his mistake to the keenness of his feelings at the moment. Mr. Ferguson told his
lordship that he was mistaken, for that O'Connor was acquitted. - His lordship could not say
who it was that obstructed the Bow-street officers.
'Sir J[ohn] Mitford [later Baron Redesdale], solicitor-general, stated that he observed Mr.
Ferguson speaking to O'Connor when he put his leg over the bar; Sir John called out to stop him;
Mr. Ferguson asserted that O'Connor was discharged, which Sir John said he contradicted;
that the gaoler laid hold of O'Connor, who then drew back his leg; when Rivett, a police-officer,
pressed forward, stating that he had a warrant against O'Connor. Several persons leaped over the
box upon the table; most of the lights were extinguished; and the witness was not able to prove
the identity of any person.
'Judge Heath, after affirming the foregoing evidence, said that Mr. Ferguson addressed the
judges, stating that the constables were to blame, for they had occasioned the riot. He did not
observe Mr. Ferguson do any thing to assist the rioters. The bench was very much alarmed on
learning that there was a great number of disaffected persons in the town. It was such a riot as
he had never witnessed in a court of justice.
'Rivett, one of the police officers, corroborated the preceding statements. He also added some
circumstances respecting Mr. Thompson, but on closer investigation it did not appear that he had
a distinct recollection of that gentleman's person.
'Sir Edward Knatchbull saw Lord Thanet, and it appeared to him that his lordship endeavoured to
prevent Rivett from seizing O'Connor.
'Thomas Watson, the gaoler of Maidstone, heard the judge give directions not to discharge the
prisoner. A person unknown to the witness, below, said to O'Connor, "you are acquitted, why
don't you jump over;" - O'Connor replied, "I am ordered to be kept" - The person below said,
"pshaw, jump over." He instantly jumped over, and the witness laid hold of the skirt of his coat.
'Thomas Adams, coachman to Judge Buller, swore that he was the man who seized O'Connor at
the wicket gate, on the south side of the court. He was knocked down; and upon recovering,
he again seized O'Connor, and swore he would be d----d if he should go. He saw Lord Thanet
close to him with a small stick; did not know who knocked him down, but saw Rivett strike Lord
Thanet with a stick. He saw a person with a black gown and a wig taking an active part in
obstructing the officers.
'Mr. Stafford, clerk to Mr. Knapp, swore that he jumped upon the table, and seized a sword in
order to defend the judges. He did not observe that Lord Thanet made any obstruction to the
officers.
'Ormer, a sheriff's officer, and one Porter, were the last persons examined; but their evidence
was of no consequence; and here the evidence for the Crown closed.
Mr. [Thomas] Erskine [later 1st Baron Erskine], after a very impressive address to the jury,
observed that as Mr. Brown and Mr. Thompson were not affected by the audience already given,
he intended to call them up as witnesses in the further stage of the business. He then entered
into an eulogium on the character of Lord Thanet and Mr. Ferguson.
'Mr. Robert Smith, M.P., Mr. Bainbridge, Mr. Charles Warren and Mr. Maxwell were called in the
defence. Mr. Whitbread was next called upon, and deposed - "I was present at the trial - had a
perfect view of the court - knew Rivett previous to this affair - and am fully convinced that
neither my lord Thanet nor Mr. Ferguson was accessory to the origin of the riot. On the contrary,
I saw Mr. Ferguson wave his hand to preserve the peace. I remember judge Buller passing
sentence upon Coigley, previous to which silence was with some difficulty maintained.
Immediately after the sentence, O'Connor got out of the dock. I did not see Lord Thanet strike
Rivett; on the contrary, his lordship was endeavouring to defend himself as well as he could; but
I certainly had not my eye particularly on his lordship. - I found a press upon me from all
quarters. Some persons were attempting to advance one way, while others pushed forward in a
contrary direction. I know Mr. O'Brien very well, and did not believe him guilty of aiding or
abetting the riot; but I beg leave to impress upon the mind of the court that in such a vast
scene of confusion it was impossible to tell accurately what passed.
'Mr. Sheridan was then called upon, and deposed that he was in court when the jury retired to
consider their verdict, and when they returned, and during the whole of the tumult. He was in
the witness box with Sir Francis Burdett and the high sheriff; he had an opportunity of perfectly
observing all that passed. When the sentence was passed, Mr. O'Connor got nimbly over the box,
and made toward the door. Mr. O'Brien was near the box, and went rather behind it, though he
was in the best situation to have assisted him, if he had been so disposed. Mr. Sheridan said any
attempt to rescue O"Connor must have been rashness, but if anyone could have afforded
assistance it was Mr. O'Brien, from the particular situation he was in. He said he had, at the
request of the judge, exerted himself to assuage that panic which prevailed throughout the
court. Lord Thanet was assailed by one of the officers, and the blows were laid on so thick, that
it was almost incredible he should have able to defend himself. He saw Mr. Ferguson in his place,
till he was forced from it by the crowd; he had no stick in his hand, nor could Rivett have come
in contact with him, so as to have wrested a stick out of his hand. Mr. Sheridan positively swore
Mr. Ferguson had no stick in his hand; and stated if he had had one, he must have observed it.
'Mr. Sheridan having finished his evidence in chief, Mr. [Edward] Law [later 1st Baron
Ellenborough] asked him whether, from the observations he had made, he could state upon his
oath that neither lord Thanet or Mr. Ferguson intended to favour the escape of Mr. O'Connor? Mr.
Sheridan replied that nothing that came under his observation could induce a belief they had any
such intention. Mr. Law repeated the question, and rather a warm altercation ensued; but Mr.
Sheridan persisted in giving the same answer.
'The attorney-general replied to the arguments of Mr. Erskine and commented upon the evidence,
inferring that it strictly applied to the three defendants, lord Thanet, Mr. Ferguson and Mr.
O'Brien.
'The jury retiring, and after remaining out an hour and a half, concluded this important trial,
which lasted from nine in the morning till twelve at night, by pronouncing Lord Thanet and Mr.
Ferguson guilty. - The other three [O'Brien, Thompson and Brown] were formally acquitted.'
On 10 June 1799, Thanet was sentenced to a year's imprisonment in the Tower of London and
fined 1,000. Upon his release, he had to enter into a good behaviour bond for seven years,
together with providing sureties amounting to 20,000.
The special remainder to the Marquessate of Thomond
From the "London Gazette" of 6 January 1801 (issue 15326, page 40):-
"His Majesty has been pleased to grant the following Dignities to the Noblemen hereafter names,
and the Heirs Male of their respective Bodies lawfully begotten, viz......To Murrough Earl of
of lnchiquin, Knight of the Most Illustrious Order of St.the Dignity of Marquis of Thomond, with
Remainder to his Brother the Honorable Edward O'Brien."
Murrough O'Brien,1st Marquess of Thomond
From the "Aberdeen Journal" of 17 February 1808 [but article dated 12 February]:-
'We are concerned to state the untimely death of that worthy and respectable public and
private character the Marquis of Thomond, which took place in Grosvenor-square yesterday
afternoon. His Lordship was riding, attended by a groom, when his horse taking fright, got
upon the pavement, where he fell, and precipitated the Marquis with violence into the horse
way, where a waggon cart coming hastily by, one of the wheels ran over the body. He was
taken into Lord Blandford's house, where he expired in about half an hour.'
A slightly different version had previously appeared in 'The Morning Chronicle' of 11
February 1808:-
'We are sorry to state, that yesterday the Marquis of Thomond was unfortunately killed in
Grosvenor-square. He was riding on horseback, and as he turned the corner of the square from
the east to the south side, he rode up rather close to the railing, where the pavement is not so
even as in the middle of the carriage-way. The horse tumbled, and his Lordship fell upon his
head. Being in his 86th year [sic], he was very infirm, and incapable of making any exertion
towards lessening the force of his fall; he bled profusely, and lay upon the ground. Lord Sydney
happened to be home at the time, and ordered his porter and some others, to bring the
unfortunate Nobleman into his house. The servants took him up in an apparent lifeless state; and
upon a professional man being sent for, it was found that his Lordship was actually dead. Just as
his Lordship fell a cart happened to be coming up; one of the wheels run against him, but it is
not supposed that that was the occasion of his death. A warrant was last night obtained for the
removal of the body to the house of the deceased; and the inquest will be held this day. His
Lordship was Marquis of Thomond and Earl of Inchiquin, in Ireland, and Baron Thomond, in
England.
The special remainder to the Barony of Thurlow created in 1792
From the "London Gazette" of 9 June 1792 (issue 13424, page 396):-
"The King has been pleased to grant to the Right Honorable Edward Baron Thurlow, His Majesty's
Chancellor of Great Britain, and the Heirs Male of his Body lawfully begotten, the Dignity of a
Baron of the Kingdom of Great Britain, by the Name, Style and Title of Baron Thurlow, of Thurlow
in the County of Suffolk, with Remainders severally and successively to Edward Thurlow and
Thomas Thurlow, Esquires, Sons of tlie Right Reverend Thomas Thurlow, late Lord Bishop of
Durham, deceased, and to the Reverend Edward South Thurlow, one of the Prebendaries of the
Catholic Church of Norwich, and the respective Heirs Male of their Bodies lawfully begotten."
