Catherine Lucy Wilhelmina Stanhope Powlett, Duchess of Cleveland

1819 - 1901

Born Catherine Lucy Wilhelmina Stanhope, married first Archibald, Lord Dalmeny (1809-1851) and later Harry George Vane, 4th duke of Cleveland.

"The 5th earl's mother was Catherine Lucy Wilhelmina, only daughter of Philip Henry, 4th Earl Stanhope; she was thus a sister of Earl Stanhope, the historian, and a niece of Lady Hester Stanhope, who was the niece of William Pitt. A celebrated beauty, a maid of honour and bridesmaid of Queen Victoria, she married, on the 20th of December 1843, Archibald, Lord Dalmeny (1809-1851), member for the Stirling Burghs, who became a lord of the admiralty under Melbourne. After his death she became the wife of Harry George Vane, 4th duke of Cleveland, and died in 1901."
