The Lady Matilda Harriet Maxwell Ancestry Glasgow

This afternoon, I am posting an image of a memorial plaque to The Lady Matilda Harriet Maxwell found on what appears to be the family mausoleum in Eastwood Old Cemetery, Glasgow.

Lady Maxwell was born Sept 23rd 1802 and died August 21st 1857. She was the daughter of Thomas, Earl of Elgin & Kincardine and wife of Sir John Maxwell Bart.

As will be evident from information contained in this link, the family have connections with the famous Elgin marbles.

From my experience it is unusual to find aristocracy buried in Glasgow cemeteries, so this was a nice bonus
