Costume at the Duchess of Devonshire's 2 July 1897 Fancy-dress Ball[edit | edit source]

The Times lists the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch as having attended the Duchess of Devonshire's fancy-dress ball with the "Ladies Scot"[16]; Lady Katharine Scott is at 25, Lady Constance Scott is at 26.

Louisa Duchess of Buccleuch[edit | edit source]

Louisa Jane Hamilton Montagu Douglas Scott, Duchess of Buccleuch (at 24) sat at Table 3 for the first seating for supper. She was dressed

  • "as Elizabeth, Duchess of Buccleuch, after Sir Joshua Reynolds."[16]
  • "after Sir Joshua Reynolds. Petticoat and square bodice of cream satin, with over-dress of terra cotta brocade, with Watteau pleat at back, turned back with a wide collar of Irish lace, the ends falling to the hem."[17]:7, Col. 7A
  • "in black velvet slashed with yellow, wore a white ruff and little black velvet cap embroidered in pearls."[18]:Col. 1

John Thomson's portrait of "Louisa Jane (née Hamilton), Duchess of Buccleuch as Elizabeth, Duchess of Buccleuch" in costume is #87 in the album presented to the Duchess of Devonshire and now in the National Portrait Gallery.[19] The printing on the portrait says, "The Duchess of Buccleuch as Elizabeth, Duchess of Buccleuch," with a Long S in Duchess both times.[20]

William, Duke of Buccleuch[edit | edit source]

William, Duke of Buccleuch (at 20) is not listed as having been seated at supper. According to the Morning Post and the Times, he was

  • dressed as "William Cavendish Duke of Newcastle (1676), after a painting by Samuel Cooper."[17]:7, Col. 7A
  • dressed as "William Cavendish, Duke of Newcastle (1676) after a painting by Samuel Cooper."[16]

According to the London Daily News, the Belfast News-Letter, the Carlisle Patriot, and the Westminster Gazette, he

  • "went as Charles I."[21]:6, Col. 1B[22]:6, Col. 1B[23]
  • "The Duke of Buccleuch was a Charles I."[18]:Col. 1

The fact that the same information is repeated does not suggest that it is confirmed; it seems likely that the story in the London Daily News was repeated in the other two papers, as well as others, in fact.
