Whitehall Evening Post of London Intelligencer - Thursday November 16, 1769
Dead. On Thursday evening died, at Hammersmith, the Right Hon. Henry Paget, Earl of Uxbridge, Baron Paget of Beaudesert, and of Burton. His Lordship was born in 1719, succeeded the late Earl Henry, his grandfather, in August, 1743, and was unmarried. Thomas Caresby, Lord Paget, father of the late Earl, married May 3, 1718, the Lady Elizabeth, sister of Scroop Egerton, Duke of Bridgewater; and his Lordship dying in January, 1741-2, left issue Henry, his only son, now deceased, who was in the 53rd year of his age.

By the death of the above Nobleman, the title of Baron Paget, and an estate of upwards of 8000 l. a year, descend to Henry Bayly, Esq., eldest son of Sir Nicholas Bayly, Bart.

I have assumed that the above newspaper was issued during the day of the 16th November 1769 and thus refers to the death occuring on the previous Thursday evening, i.e. 9 November.

Died Unmarried.

Henry Paget (1719-1769), who succeeded his grandfather in 1743 as second Earl of Uxbridge, was chiefly remarkable for an inordinate love of money. Peter Walter, the notorious usurer, who had been his steward, bequeathed to him in 1746 the principal part of his immense wealth (LIPSCOMB, Buckinghamshire, ii. 596). Uxbridge is said, however, to have continued to Walter's daughter, Mrs. Bullock, during her life the payment of a very large annuity, instead of availing himself to the full of the letter of her father's will (Monthly Mag. xii. 37). He died unmarried on 16 Nov. 1769, and the earldom became extinct. But the barony-in-fee of Paget devolved on Henry, son of Sir Nicholas Bayly, by Caroline, great-granddaughter of William, fifth baron Paget [q. v.] Henry Bayly assumed the surname of Paget ; was summoned to parliament in 1770 as ninth Baron Paget; was created Earl of Uxbridge in 1784 ; and by his wife Jane, eldest daughter of Arthur Champagne, dean of Clonmacnoise, was father of Henry William, first marquis of Anglesey [q. v.], Arthur [q. v.], Edward [q. v.], and Charles [q. v.]
