Camperdown


CAMPERDOWN, Earl of, of Lundie, and of Gleneagles, a title in the peerage of the United Kingdom, conferred in 1831 on the Right Hon. Robert Dundas Duncan Haldane, second viscount Duncan, third but eldest surviving son of the celebrated admiral, first viscount. Born in 1785, he succeeded his father in the viscounty in 1804, and took his seat in the house of lords in 1806, soon after attaining his majority. On the coronation of William IV. he was elevated to the rank of earl, and on that occasion the king was pleased, as his own special act, and as a tribute to the memory of the first viscount Duncan, to adopt the unusual step in the case of a new creation of giving his lordship’s brother and sisters the rank of earl’s children. His lordship (K.T. 1848), died in 1859. He had assumed the name of his maternal grandmother Haldane. His elder son, Adam Duncan-Haldane, viscount Duncan, M.P. for Forfarshire, born in 1812, a lord of the Treasury from March 1855 to feb. 1858, succeeded as 2d earl; married, 1839, with issue.
