George Bertie, 10th Earl of Lindsey
George was styled Lord Bertie from his birth until his accession to the earldom in 1818. Lindsey was of "weak intellect", and posed something of a family problem. After a visit by Lindsey in 1841, George Cruikshank wrote to Charles Dickens (who had given Lindsey a note of introduction) to comment that his wife had at first thought Lindsey "either drunk or mad". As a consequence, his public life was very limited, although on 10 August 1849, he was made a Deputy Lieutenant of Lincolnshire. Upon his death in 1877, he was succeeded by his brother Montague Bertie.
