Dec. 28. At Lutton, near Sledmere, Yorkshire, in his 21st year, Lord Arthur Paget, third son of the Marquess of Anglesea, by his first wife Caroline-Elizabeth, dau. of George, 4th Earl of Jersey.
The death of this much esteemed young nobleman was occasioned by an accident whilst hunting; his horse failed in an attempted leap, and fell upon its rider, he was speedily removed, and every attention paid to him, but with little hopes of his recovery. An express was sent off to his distressed parent, but, before his arrival, the youthful Lord had expired.
His remains passed through York on the 4th of January, in solemn funeral procession, on their way for interment, in the family vault at Lichfield, in Staffordshire. The procession was met on Heworth Moor by the officers and troops of the 7th Hussars, stationed at York Barracks, and proceeded through the city without Micklegate Bar to Dring-houses, the band playing the "Dead march in Saul," the drums, trumpets, &c. being covered with black cloth. This lamented young nobleman held a Lieutenant's commission in the regiment, and his death is greatly deplored by his fellow officers. The funeral was attended by the Earl of Uxbridge (the deceased's brother), as chief mourner, Lord Macdonald, the Colonel of the regiment, Duncan Davidson, Esq. and other gentlemen.
