Death of John Bowes, the 10th Earl of Strathmore

John Bowes, the 10th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne, died at the age of 50 on the 3rd of July 1820. The Earl had substantial estates in both Scotland and England, including Gibside near Gateshead, to which he had made major alterations during his life. Just before he died, John Bowes married his partner of 10 years, Mary Milner, a former servant with whom he had a son. A bitter court case over the terms of the Earl's will ensued, and after 5 years, it was decided that the Earl's son would inherit his English estates, including Gibside, Streatlam Castle and St Paul's Walden Bury, while his brother would inherit the Scottish estates.
