The Earl of Eldon was walking along Orchard Street, London, W., yesterday morning, when he had a seizure and collapsed on the pavement. A doctor was called, and found that the Earl had died.
Lord Eldon had just left his house in Portman Square, and, it is understood, was on his way to see his doctor.
The deceased Peer, who was the third holder of the title, to which he succeeded as long ago as 1854, was 80 years of age. He is succeeded by his grandson, Viscount Encombe, who was formerly in the Scots Guards, and served in the Great War.
