Biography
Elizabeth was the daughter of William Grant (d. 1821) and Dorothea Dalrymple, who were married in 1794. William was a lawyer, and owner of an estate called Congalton, in Scotland. William Grant may be best remembered as the subject of Gilbert Stuart's full length portrait, The Skater, now in the NGA (1950.18.1). In 1848 Elizabeth married Charles Pelham-Clinton (1813-1894), second son of the 4th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyme. She had four sons, Charles Stapleton (1857-1911), Henry William (1860-1927), Hubert Edward (1862-1913) and one who was born and died in 1862. [Compiled from sources and references recorded on CMS]
