Notes:

Claude George Bowes-Lyon, 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne KG, KT, GCVO, TD (14 March 1855–7 November 1944) was a landowner and the maternal grandfather of Queen Elizabeth II.

From 1937 he was known as "14th and 1st Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne", because he was the 14th Earl in the peerage of Scotland but the 1st Earl in the peerage of the United Kingdom. He was born at Lowndes Square in London, the son of Claude Bowes-Lyon, 13th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and his wife, the former Frances Dora Smith.

After being educated at Eton College he received a commission in the 2nd Life Guards. He served for six years until the year after his marriage to Cecilia Cavendish-Bentinck on 16 July 1881, at Petersham, Surrey.

The couple had ten children, of whom they were very fond.
