About John Lyon- Bowes , 9th Earl of Strathmore

John Bowes, 9th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Bowes (17 July 1737 – 7 March 1776), born John Lyon, was the 9th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and one of the ancestors of Queen Elizabeth II. The Earl was famous for his appearance; he was known as "the beautiful Lord Strathmore".[1] His character was later described by Jesse Foot thus: "The late Earl of Strathmore was not calculated to make even a good learned woman a pleasing husband. His Lordship's pursuits were always innocent and without the smallest guile, but they were not those of science or any other splendid quality. A sincere friend, a hearty Scotchman and a good bottle companion were points of his character." The Earl was the son of Thomas Lyon, 8th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, and his wife, the former Jean Nicholsen. In 1767, he married the heiress Mary Eleanor Bowes, and as per the stipulations of the will of the father of the bride, assumed his wife's name of Bowes. This change of name required an Act of Parliament. The two had five children:

Maria Jane Lyon (21 April 1768 – 22 April 1806). Married Barrington Price, a Colonel of the British Army on 11 May 1789. Had issue.

John Lyon-Bowes, 10th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne (14 April 1769 – 3 July 1820).

Anna Maria Lyon (3 June 1770 – 29 March 1832).

George Bowes-Lyon (17 November 1771 – 26 December 1806). Married Mary Thornhill.

Thomas Bowes-Lyon, 11th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne (3 May 1773 – 27 August 1846).

From 1 October 1767 and until his death, he sat as a Scottish Representative peer in the House of Lords. On 7 March 1776, Lord Strathmore died of tuberculosis whilst at sea on his way to Portugal.
