DEATH OF LORD WHARNCLIFFE
We regret to announce the death of Lord WHARNCLIFFE, whick took place on Monday morning at Wortley-hall, the family seat in Yorkshire. The deceased peer had for some months suffered from severe indisposition, so that this event was not altogether unexpected. The Right Hon. J. STUART WORTLEY, M.P. (the Recorder), and other near relatives, have been congregated at Wortley-hall in anticipation of the approaching end of their relative. The deceased JOHN STUART WORTLEY, Baron Wharncliffe of Wortley, county of Cork, in the peerage of the United Kingdom, was eldest son of John ARCHIBALD, first Baron, and Lady Elizabeth, daughter of John, first Earl of Erne. His Lordship was born the 20th of April, 1801, and married on the 12th of December, 1825, Lady Georgiana Elizabeth RYDER, third daughter of the late and sister of the present Earl of Barrowby, by whom, who survives, the late Lord leaves issue the Marchioness of Drogheda and an unmarried daughter, and three sons, the eldest of whom, the Hon. Edward (now Lord Wharncliffe) was born the 16th of December, 1827, and married the 4th July, 1855, Lady Susan LASCELLES, daughter of the Earl and Countess of Harewood. The deceased nobleman was a Liberal Conservative in politics, but mainly employed himself in promoting the interests of his tenants, and, like his father, was greatly attached to agriculture, seeking all the newest modes to improve the culture of the land. He sat for the West Riding of Yorkshire from the general election in 1841, being returned with Mr. E. TENNISON at the head of the poll, defeating Viscount MILTON and Viscount MORPETH (now Earl of Carlisle), until the death of his father in 1845, when he succeeded to the family honours and estates.
