Bertie, Albemarle, 9th Earl of Lindsey (1744 -1818)
General Albermarle Bertie, 9th Earl of Lindsey, was the son of Peregrine Bertie, and Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Payne, of Tottenham Wick. He was the great grandson of the Honourable Charles Bertie (1635 1711), 5th son of Montagu, 2nd Earl of Lindsey. A General in the army and Member of Parliament for Stamford in Lincolnshire between 1796 and 1809, he succeeded to the title late in life, when his kinsman Brownlow 5th Duke of Ancaster and Marquess of Lindsey, and 8th Earl of Lindsey died, on the 8 February 1809. He married, firstly, 7 May 1794, Eliza Maria, daughter of William Clay, and widow of Thomas Scrope, of Coleby. She died without issue in July 1806, and he married, secondly, 18 November 1809, Charlotte Susannah Elizabeth, eldest daughter of the Very Reverend Charles Peter Layard, D.D., Dean of Bristol. He seems to have had armorial stamps added to the books he inherited from his grandfather Charles Bertie, many of which have the signature `Charles Bertie' in them. At any rate, the stamp which is usually attributed to Charles Bertie is in the style of the early nineteenth century, not that of the late seventeenth. A portion of the library of Montague Peregrine Albermarle Bertie, 12th Earl of Lindsey, was sold at Sotheby's 23 July 1900.
