The Unhappy Countess was Mary Eleanor Bowes, Countess of Strathmore, and this book tells how and why her first husband and their eldest son, the tenth Earl of Strathmore, substituted the surname of Bowes for that of Lyon,- and why, whereas theMoreThe Unhappy Countess was Mary Eleanor Bowes, Countess of Strathmore, and this book tells how and why her first husband and their eldest son, the tenth Earl of Strathmore, substituted the surname of Bowes for that of Lyon,- and why, whereas the familiar double-barrelled surname of Bowes-Lyon was used by the eleventh and subsequent Earls, the only son of the tenth Earl was styled plain Mr John Bowes.The story behind these changes in nomenclature is a remarkable one, embracing as it does the unhappy marriage in 1767 of the bluestocking heiress of all the wealth of the north to the ninth Earl- the resounding scandals, alarms and excursions that attended and followed Lady Strathmores second marriage to the disgraceful Andrew Robinson Stoney- the death-bed wedding of her eldest son, the tenth Earl to Mary Milner- and the extraordinary career of her grandson John Bowes, which included membership of Parliament, winning the Derby four times, managing and owning a theatre in Paris, active participation in the County Durham coal-trade, amassing one of the great art collections of the nineteenth century, and founding the Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle.
