His Lordship was in the 58th year of his age, and is suceeded in his title and estates by his eldest son, Peter, (now Lord KING) who attained his majority in January last. His Lordship has also left several daughters. The founder of the family, Peter, the first Lord, was son of Jerome KING, a gentleman of good family, in the county of Somerset, by a sister of the great John LOCKE. He was appointed Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas 1714, and was constituted Lord Chancellor 1725. His four sons, John, Peter, William, and Thomas, successively inherited the title, the last was grandfather of the late Peer.— The present Baron is now officiating as Secretary to Lord NUGENT, Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands; but the demise of his father will cause his speedy return to this country. The late Lord's younger son, the Hon. Peter John Locke KING, has lately taken his degree at one of the Universities.— [The late Nobleman was a most valuable member of the Legislature, both as an economist and an independent man. He would have done honour to the other House.]
