Person NameGordon; Lord; Charles (1847-1937); 11th Marquess of Huntly; of Aboyne Castle and Orton Hall
Title11th Marquess of Huntly
Epithetof Aboyne Castle and Orton Hall
ActivityCharles Gordon, 11th Marquess of Huntly (1847-1937) was the owner of vast estates across Aberdeenshire and Huntingdonshire, however the extent to which these lands were alienated during his lifetime suggests that land management was never his foremost interest. He was an active politician, holding office in Gladstone's first two ministries and serving in local positions in both Aberdeenshire and Huntingdonshire. His political interests are demonstrated by his 1931 publication entitled "The national government yesterday and to-morrow". This was far from the only book which he published, with his six others taking in other subjcts of interest to him including local history, agriculture and a travelogue covering sport and politics in Eastern Europe. He also had an avid interest in hunting, following the Fitzwilliam Hunt for most of his life and frequently using his lands in Aberdeenshire for shooting. Unfortunately, his interest in gambling had the most dramatic impact on his life as his later years were spent in litigation and the selling of his property.
