A scion of Vale Royal, - in the words of Farmer Dobbin -
    "A chip of owd Lord Delamere, the Honerable Tum."

A heavy-weight, but fine rider to hounds, and admirable judge of a good horse. He commanded the 1st Cheshire Militia for many years, whilst they were permanently embodied, and quartered in Chester on garrison duty, during the Crimean War. Amongst other high merits, he was the father of that excellent soldier, Col. H. Cholmondeley, C.I.V., C.B., and of two other good sportsmen, Randal and Henry Cholmondeley.
