PostSubject: Was He in the Zulu War   Sat Jul 17, 2010 12:21 pm

Hi All
Need to confirm he was a participant in the Zulu War
I found an obituary in either the London Times or the Irish Times 1945
Death of the Earl of Scarborough, served zulu war second boer war and world war one.
I have found the following on the WWW
Aldred Frederick George Lumley, 10th Earl of Scarborough B.16 Nov 1857- D.4 March 1945, married Lucy Cecillia Gardner one child, Father Richard George Lumley 9th Earl.
Buried at the Family Chapel, Sandbeck Park nr Tickhill, Maltby, Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
In the Army List 1878, he is a Sub-Lt 7th Hussars.
I think his participation was in the later 1884 campaign ????? can anyone help?????

Hi Rai

I am unable to find any reference to him taking part in the Anglo-Zulu of 1879.

Major-General Aldred Frederick George Beresford Lumley, 10th Earl of Scarbrough, KG, GBE, KCB, GStJ (16 November 1857 – 4 March 1945) was a British peer and soldier. His first name is sometimes rendered as Alfred, not Aldred.

Lumley was the son of the 9th Earl of Scarbrough and was educated at Eton. He was Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire from 1892 to 1904 and commanded the 7th Hussars, the Yorkshire Dragoons and the Yorkshire Mounted Brigade during the Boer War in 1900 and afterwards became an aide-de-camp to King Edward VII in 1902. He was Director-General of the Territorial Force until his retirement in 1921.

Rai. He appears to have served in the Boerwar. No reference to Zulu War.

Major-General Aldred Frederick George Beresford Lumley, 10th Earl of Scarbrough, KG, GBE, KCB, GStJ (16 November 1857 – 4 March 1945) was a British peer and soldier. His first name is sometimes rendered as Alfred, not Aldred. Lumley was the son of the 9th Earl of Scarbrough and was educated at Eton. He was Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding of Yorkshire from 1892 to 1904 and commanded the 7th Hussars, the Yorkshire Dragoons and the Yorkshire Mounted Brigade during the Boer War in
1900 and afterwards became an aide-de-camp to King Edward VII in 1902. He was Director-General of the Territorial Force until his retirement in 1921. on 8 April 1899, Scarbrough married [http://www.thepeerage.com/p7536.htm Lucy Cecilia Dunn-Gardner] (d. 24 November 1931), widow of Col. Robert Ashton (d. 1898) [Robert Ashton (1848-1898) was a second cousin of Thomas Gair Ashton, 1st Baron Ashton of Hyde (1855-1933), whose great-grandfather [http://www.thepeerage.com/p2987.htm#i29866 Samuel Ashton] (1742-1812) was his great-grandfather as well.] . His wife brought a stepson and stepdaughter to their marriage, and gave birth to a single daughter Lady Serena Lumley. Lucy was the daughter of Cecil Dunn-Gardner.

The Countess's father was probably Cecil Dunn-Gardner (b. 1827, possibly d. by 1880) [Date of birth listed in [http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/accessions/1995/95returns/95ac12.htm the accessions list of the National Archives] . His library was [http://www.oldandsold.com/articles11/book-prices-7.shtml partly sold] in June 1880; such sales often took place after the death of the collector in question.] , formerly of the 13th light Dragoons. If the identification is correct, he was the third surviving son of the brewer John Margetts (d. 1842) and his bigamous wife Sarah Dunn-Gardner,

Marchioness Townshend, and the younger brother of John Dunn Gardner MP.
Scarbrough's stepdaughter Dorothy Violet Ashton (1885-1956) married in 1914 Lord Gerald Wellesley (1885-1972), who succeeded his nephew as Duke in 1943. The marriage was not a great success, but produced a son and daughter. The son is the present Duke of Wellington (b. 1915), still alive, in his nineties.
Scarbrough's own daughter [http://www.thepeerage.com/p7536.htm#i75354 Lady Serena Lumley] married 1923 the Hon. Robert James, and later refused the marriage proposal of her brother-in-law, by then Duke of Wellington. [For details, see the "Daily Telegraph" obituary of Lady Serena James, nee Lumley] . Her elder daughter Ursula James married David Allan Bethell, 5th Baron Westbury (1922-2001); their son Richard is the present 6th Baron.
Scarbrough was appointed Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) shortly before his retirement from the Territorial Force in 1921 for his military service.

None of them took part in the Zulu War.

SANDBECK PARK
Near Tickhill, Yorkshire – Earl of SCARBROUGH


The situation of Sandbeck Park is very pleasant, quiet, and retired, and the “tout ensemble” of a thoroughly English character. A large herd of deer roam through a spacious park adorned with stately trees of ancient growth, while on one side is a large lake, and on another the elegant spire of Laughton-en-le-Morthen Church at no great distance comes into view. A handsome private chapel adjoins the house.
