1. Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy, lst Earl of Cranbrook (1814-1906) entered House of Commons in 1856 as member for Leominster; Hardy succeeded Villiers as President of the Poor Law Board in July 1866 but, although invited by F.N. in this letter to avail himself of her services, he neglected to do so to her great disappointment. To some extent this marked the end of her direct influence on public affairs. (See Cook II, 115, 134) (Gathorne Hardy's correspondence with F.N. covering the years 1866-7, is in B.M. Add.MSS.45787),
