Re: Peeresses Tiaras at Coronation. Countess of Pembroke
Thanks Beth for your incite and correction. I just automatically assumed that the 5th Marquess was the Countess's father, sorry for not doing my research as per usual.
Beatrice Paget was the daughter of Lord Alexander Paget, a younger son of the 2nd Marquess of Anglesey.
Her brother became the 6th Marquess of Anglesey in March 1905 following the early death of the 5th Marquess. The 5th Marquess (who died childless) squandered the family fortune, was declared bankrupt and several major auctions of his non-entailed possessions were held in 1904.
I couldn't see any wedding gift from the 5th Marquess to his cousin, Beatrice.
Here are some cuttings showing some family gifts to the bride.
