The brother of the first Lord Tollernache, of Peckforton Castlc, and therefore a member of a leading Cheshire family, few men in his time were better known, both in Cheshire and Leicestershire, as brilliant and daring riders to hounds.
In the latter days of his life, while living at Dorfold, he was a rather infrequent attendant of the chase, but when out he seemed by instinct to take his natural place alongside of the leading hound, or by 'r lady a few strides in advance, and not seldom immediately followed in the second place by his daughter, Miss Alice Tollemache, to both of whom nothing in the way of timber or water seemed to come amiss. Somehow, on thc present occasion, Miss Tollemache has dropped out of the picture.
