  1. Allan D says :

    In Round 3 you omitted Ivo Bligh, 8th Earl of Darnley, captain of the 1882-3 tourists and originator of “The Ashes”. He succeeded his brother to the Earldom in 1900 and though, as an Irish peer, not automatically entitled to a seat in the Lords he was elected as a representative peer in March 1905: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivo_Bligh,_8th_Earl_of_Darnley
