  • appeared as "Mary Queen of Scots."[4]:7, Col. 7A

John Thomson's portrait of "Katharine Mary (née Montagu-Douglas-Scott), Viscountess Hampden as Marie Stuart" in costume is #88 in the album presented to the Duchess of Devonshire and now in the National Portrait Gallery.[9] The printing on the portrait says, "Lady Katharine Scott as Marie Stuart."[10]

The Duke of Buccleuch is at 20, the Duchess at 24. The "Ladies Scot" are listed in the Times as having attended with the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch[11]; Lady Katharine Scott is at 25, Lady Constance Scott is at 26. The Duke was not seated at dinner?

Notes and Questions[edit | edit source]

  1. Lady Sophie Scott (at 57) was Lady Sophie Beatrix Mary Cadogan, who married Sir Samuel Scott, 6th Bt. on 19 July 1896 and was not closely related to these Scotts.[12]
  2. Brand apparently was not at the ball; he and Lady Katharine Scott did not marry until 29 April 1899.
