Notes for Lionel Seymour William DAWSON-DAMER 4th Earl of Portarlington
The fourth Earl, Lionel Seymour Dawson-Damer, nicknamed “Hippy”, was a cousin of the third Earl, a former captain in the Scots Fusilier guards who had served in the Crimean War. Described in Vanity Fair in 1871 as “blessed with a keen appreciation of the good things of this life” and “genial”, he appears not to have taken a very active part in political life, although he was MP for Portarlington 1857-65 and 1868-80.

His mother was Mary Seymour, who was adopted at an early age by Maria Fitzherbert who had married the Prince of Wales, later George IV, in 1785. His three short years as Earl of Portarlington from 1889 to 1892 did not permit him to make many improvements or changes at Emo.
