About this image
Henry Pelham Alexander Pelham-Clinton, the sixth Duke, was born January 25, 1834. He was educated at Eton and at Christ Church, Oxford. In 1856 he was attached to Earl Granville's special embassy to Russia. He married in 1861, Henrietta Adela, only daughter of Henry Thomas Hope, of Deepdene, Surrey. The Deepdene and Castleblayney estates and all the Hope objets d'art were settled on the Newcastles' second son, Lord Henry Francis Hope Pelham-Clinton, who on his coming-of-age in 1887 assumed the name of Hope. He was sheriff of Co. Monaghan in 1891, so it is likely that his grandmother, Anne Hope, had died, and he had inherited the Castleblayney estate, by that date. His elder brother, Archibald Pelham Douglas Clinton, became 7th Duke of Newcastle in 1879, but died without issue in 1928, when Lord Henry Francis Hope succeeded as 8th Duke.
