Valentine Quin, 1st Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl
Valentine Richard Quin, 1st Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl, 1st Baronet (30 July 1752 – 24 August 1824) was an Irish Peer and MP.
The son of Windham Quin, he was created a Baronet in 1781. He was elected in 1799 as Member of Parliament for Killmallock to the Irish House of Commons, sitting until the union with Great Britain in 1800/01.
He was created 1st Baron Adare on 31 July 1800 - as a staunch supporter of the political union, he was recommended by Lord Cornwallis -  1st Viscount Mount-Earl on 3 February 1816, and 1st Earl of Dunraven and Mount-Earl on 5 February 1822. He presumably chose the title of ‘Dunraven’ in honour of his daughter-in-law, Caroline Wyndham, who had married his eldest son in 1810. His earldom lasted only two years until his death in 1824, when his son, Windham Henry Quin, became the 2nd Earl of Dunraven and Mountearl. The family name had officially become Wyndham-Quin in 1815.
He married (1) Lady Frances Muriel Fox-Strangways, daughter of Stephen Fox-Strangways, 1st Earl of Ilchester, on 24 August 1777. They had the following children:
- Lady Harriet Quin (d. 13 December 1845), married Sir William Payne-Gallwey, 1st Baronet
- Windham Henry Quin, 2nd Earl of Dunraven (1782–1850)
He married (2) Margaret Mary Coghlan
