|Admin History||When Thomas Pelham-Clinton, 3rd Duke of Newcastle under Lyne died in 1795 the Newcastle estates had only been in his hands for a year. They passed to his eldest son, Henry, 4th Duke (1785-1851) who was only ten years old. This train of events meant that the estates spent a considerable time under the control of executors and trustees, before the 4th Duke reached his majority in 1806.|
