  • Notes 
    • Sarah was slim, wild, lovely and rackety. At the age of sixteen she was married to Lord Tyrconnel, who was thirteen years older and a friend of her father. When she rode a horse 'her hair floated on the saddle'. Frederick, Duke of York, adored her and there is no doubt she was his mistress for a time. He let her down badly. John, 10th Earl of Strathmore fell head over heels in love with her when he was only twenty-two.

      Tyrconnel did not bother his head much about his wife's lover. She and Strathmore rode together, raced together, danced and made love. He worshipped the turf on which her thoroughbred hunter trod.

      Then, in 1800, the lovely 'Hussey' Tyrconnel died of consumption in her lover's mansion at Gibside. Strathmore gave her a funeral which almost ruined the estate.
