From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir John Robert Gladstone (26 April 1852 – 25 June 1926) was the son of Sir Thomas Gladstone, an older brother of the Liberal Prime Minister William Gladstone, and Louisa Fellowes.

He attended the state funeral of his uncle, W E Gladstone, in 1898.[1] Like his father, Gladstone was Lord Lieutenant of Kincardineshire, and was also a Justice of the Peace (JP) in that county. He was a Captain in the 1st Battalion, the Coldstream Guards, and was a Brigadier in the Royal Company of Archers. He succeeded his father as baronet on 20 March 1889.[2]

He died on 25 June 1926 aged 74. He never married, so the title passed to his cousin, John Evelyn Gladstone.
