(p.16) Chapter 2 The Queensberry Inheritance
The Marquess of Queensberry

Linda Stratmann

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the different aspects of the Queensberry inheritance. In January 1855, Lord Aberdeen resigned, and in the following month, Lord Palmerston was asked to form a government. Palmerston was a long-serving, dedicated statesman, a Whig, an old opponent of Peel, and an advocate of religious tolerance. On December 28, 1855, the six children of Archibald and Caroline were christened at Cummertrees, Caroline presenting the church with a silver christening bowl. Her interest in the welfare of her servants and tenants included their religious observance. Archibald's charm had long worn thin, and he must also have suffered under the disapproving gaze of Prince Albert, who expected high moral standards from men in public life.
