From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edith Maud Rawdon-Hastings, Countess of Loudoun (10 December 1833 – 23 January 1874) was a British peeress, the daughter of George Rawdon-Hastings, 2nd Marquess of Hastings and his wife Barbara Rawdon Hastings. She was greatly attached to the old Mure family mansion of Rowallan Castle near Kilmaurs in Ayrshire. She expended considerable sums in repairing the ancient edifice and without her concern this remarkable building would no longer be with us.[1]

She married Charles Clifton, 1st Baron Donington, on 30 April 1853 and they had six children:

  • Lady Flora Paulyna Hetty Barbara Abney Hastings (1854–1887), married Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk and had issue.
  • Charles Edward Hastings Clifton, 11th Earl of Loudoun (1855–1920)
  • Major Paulyn Francis Cuthbert Rawdon-Hastings (1856–1907), married Lady Maud Grimston, daughter of James Grimston, 2nd Earl of Verulam and had issue.
  • Gilbert Theophilus Clifton Clifton-Hastings-Campbell, 3rd Baron Donington (1859–1927)
  • Henry Cecil Plantagenet Clifton (1860–1886), died young.
  • Egidia Sophia Frederica Christina Clifton (1870–1892), died young.
