    • Marquess of Lincolnshire, 3rd Lord Carrington

      Charles Carington was a close friend of The Prince of Wales at Trinity, Cambridge and served The Prince in many capacities throughout his life.
      He was Member of Parliament for High Wycombe in 1865 but succeeded his father as third Lord Carrington three years later. He served in the Royal Horse Guards, was Governor of New South Wales from 1885 – 1890 and President of the Board of Agriculture from 1905 – 1912 he became Earl Carrington in 1895 and Marquess of Lincolnshire in 1912. He was an extreme Liberal all his life and a Progressive member of the LCC. Queen Victoria had grave doubts about his soundness, perhaps because he was such a close friend of her eldest son. In 1884 he infuriated the Conservatives by inviting The Prince to witness a big Reform demonstration from the balcony of Carrington House, thereby involving him politically. On the death of his mother, he inherited a moiety of the office of Hereditary Great Chamberlain and acted for the reign of George V. Lord Lincolnshire resigned as Lieutenant on his eightieth birthday. His only son, Viscount Wendover, had been killed in 1915 serving with the Royal Horse Guards and the Earldom and Marquessate became extinct on his death, but the barony was inherited by his younger brother whose grandson is the present Lord Carrington, a Deputy Lieutenant of the county.
