Rawdon-Hastings, Marquess of Hastings
Revised 18th December
Initially we attributed it as being the bookplate of Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 1st Marquess of Hastings (1754-1826), 2nd Earl of Moira (s. 1793), Earl of Rawdon (cr. 1816), Baron Rawdon (cr. 1783). But, according to the Frank's Collection Catalogue it seems to be F14050, doubted as a bookplate.
On the other hand the Frank's Catalogue only mentions (F14049) as being the bookplate of the 4th Marquess, grandson of the 1st Marquess.
Henry Weysford Charles Plantagenet Rawdon-Hastings, 4th Marquess of Hastings (1842 - 1868) was the son of George Augustus Francis Rawdon-Hastings, 2nd Marquess of Hastings and Barbara Yelverton, Baroness Grey (of Ruthin) and married Lady Florence Cecilia Paget, daughter of Sir Henry Paget, 2nd Marquess of Anglesey and Henrietta Maria Bagot. He was also 9th Earl of Loudoun, 20th Lord Botreaux and suc. his mother as 21st Lord Grey, of Ruthin.
