http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Egerton,_3rd_Earl_of_Ellesmere

Francis Charles Granville Egerton, 3rd Earl of Ellesmere VD, DL, JP (5 April 1847 – 13 July 1914), styled Viscount Brackley between 1857 and 1862, was a British peer, soldier and author. He owned several racehorses and 13,300 acres (54 km2) land.


Background

Born in London, he was the eldest son of the George Egerton, 2nd Earl of Ellesmere and his wife Lady Mary Louisa, the youngest daughter of John Campbell, 1st Earl Cawdor. In 1862, aged only fifteen, he succeeded his father as earl. Egerton was educated at Eton College and then at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he graduated with Bachelor of Arts in 1867.

Career

Egerton entered the British Army in 1864 and was commissioned as a cornet into the Duke of Lancaster's Own Yeomanry, where his father had previously served. He was promoted to captain in 1869 and was transferred as lieutenant-colonel to the 40th Lancashire Rifle Volunteer Corps in 1875.

After his return to the Yeomanry, he was granted an honorary majorship in July 1884 and was confirmed to the full rank in October. Two years later, Egerton became an honorary lieutenant-colonel of the Yeomanry and in January 1891 received command of it. In March he was appointed honorary colonel of the 4th Battalion, The Manchester Regiment.

He retired in January 1896 and became the Yeomanry's honorary colonel after two months. In November Egerton received the Volunteer Decoration (VD). He was appointed a Knight of Grace of the Venerable Order of Saint John in 1908 and was advanced to a Knight of Justice in 1910. Egerton was a Justice of the Peace for the counties of Lancaster as well as Northampton and represented Essex as a Deputy Lieutenant.
