Henry Pelham-Clinton, 7th Duke of Newcastle
Henry Pelham Archibald Douglas Pelham-Clinton, 7th Duke of Newcastle-under-Lyne (28 September 1864 – 30 May 1928), was an English nobleman, styled Earl of Lincoln until 1879.
One of his achievements was the restoration of the fortunes of his family estate. In 1879 a serious fire destroyed much of Clumber House; he had it magnificently rebuilt to designs by the younger Charles Barry. The duke was actively involved in the rebuilding process, and in particular in the design and building of the magnificent St Mary the Virgin Chapel in the grounds. He was also responsible for the establishment of the Clumber Choir School. His Thames Valley estate was at Forest Farm in Winkfield.
Some of the 7th Duke's personal papers are now held at Manuscripts and Special Collections, The University of Nottingham.
He was married to Kathleen Florence May Candy in 1889.
