30Aug1875, The Complicated Relations of Lady Clinton

BOLTON, August 30th–September 5th, 1875.
Spencers were expected Monday, but were prevented by the death of old Ly. Clinton, aged 80, who has long been very feeble and doting. Her head was always a little confused, but her involved relationships were enough to account for it. She was sister to one Lady Spencer, stepmother to another, and aunt to a third ; and she is Lord Spencer's own aunt, and likewise his step-mother's step-mother and his brother's grandmother.
