Arthur Maxwell, 11th Baron Farnham
He was the son of Somerset Maxwell, 10th Baron Farnham and Lady Florence Jane Taylour. On his father's death, he succeeded as 11th Baron Farnham and 14th Baronet of Calderwood on the 22 November 1900 and inherited the Farnham estate. He was educated at the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst and received his first commission during the Boer War as Lieutenant of the 10th Hussars. On the 18 December 1908, he was elected an Irish Representative peer. During World War I, he was Lieutenant Colonel of the North Irish Horse. He sat in the House of Lords as a member of the Irish Unionist Alliance, and became the leader of Southern Unionists after the 1919 split in the party.
He had married Aileen Selina Coote, daughter of Charles Purdon Coote and Lydia Lucy Wingfield-Digby, on 8 October 1903. His son, Somerset, had died of wounds in 1942 at El Alamein, and so on his own death in 1957, his titles and estate passed to his grandson, Barry. His granddaughter Sheelin married the 3rd Baron Knollys.
