My Recollections by Adeline Horsey Countess Cardigan 1824 1915 Chapter V: Country House Visits. Belvoir Castle was another delightful place I stayed at, and I remember the fifth Duke of Rutland (64) drinking my health on my eighteenth birthday. His son, the Marquis of Granby (27), was a man of consummate tact and presence of mind. At one of the house-parties there was a pretty young married lady with whom he was greatly smitten, and having received every encouragement, he paid a visit to her room after she had retired. The lady was asleep, and just as the Marquis (27) was about to rouse her, the door opened, and the husband, whom he supposed to be otherwise engaged, appeared unexpectedly on the scene. It was an embarrassing moment, but the Marquis (27), who was equal to the occasion, held up a warning finger and exclaimed in an anxious whisper, " Hush ! don't disturb her, she is fast asleep ; I was passing, and I thought I smelt fire — but all's well." The husband thanked him with honest gratitude, and doubtless felt all the happier for being under the roof of such a solicitous host.

In 1851 [his son] John James Robert Manners 7th Duke Rutland 1818-1906 (32) and Catherine Louise Georgina Marley -1854 were married.

On 20 Jan 1857 John Henry Manners 5th Duke Rutland 1778-1857 (79) died. His son Charles Manners 6th Duke Rutland 1815-1888 (41) succeeded 6th Duke Rutland, 6th Marquess Grandby, 14th Earl Rutland 3C 1525.
