Biography[edit]

Gore was the only son of Arthur Saunders Gore, 5th Earl of Arran, and Lady Edith Elizabeth Henrietta Jocelyn. He was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards on 20 November 1889, promoted to lieutenant on 13 April 1892, and to captain on 30 March 1895.[1] Following the outbreak of the Second Boer War in late 1899, he joined the Household Cavalry Composite Regiment for service in the war. He sailed for South Africa in the SS Narrung in early February 1900, and was commanding officer in charge of the various cavalry drafts on board the ship, a total of 200 men.[2] For his service in the war, he was promoted a brevet major in November 1900.[3] He later fought in the First World War and achieved the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.

He was a Justice of the Peace for Hertfordshire, County Louth and County Mayo, a Deputy Lieutenant of County Mayo and Essex and served as Lord Lieutenant of County Donegal from 1917 to 1920. He was made a Knight of the Order of St Patrick in 1909 and admitted to the Irish Privy Council in 1917.

Lord Arran married, firstly, Maud Jacqueline Marie Beauclerk van Kattendyke, daughter of Huyssen van Kattendyke, 3rd Baron van Kattendyke, in 1902. After her death in 1927 he married, secondly, Lilian Constance Quick, daughter of Joseph Quick, in 1929. Lord Arran died on 19 December 1958, aged 90, and was succeeded in his titles by his eldest son Arthur. Lilian, Lady Arran, died in 1961.[4]
