A
A--, MARQUIS OF. Leader of the opposition against the administration in which Sir William Ashton held office. He had also a private grievance against Sir William on account of the manner in which Lucy's engagement with his relative, the Master of Ravenswood, was received, and when ministerial changes put him in power he 'drove on . . . an appeal to the British House of Peers against those judgments of the courts of law by which Sir William became possessed of Ravenswood's hereditary property.'
