Excerpt from Baily's Magazine of Sports and Pastimes, Vol. 30

Since then the Bouveries, as Earls Of Radnor, have settled them selves in Berkshire and Wiltshire, their residence in the former county, Coleshill House, near Highworth, coming into their pos session through the heiress of Sir Mark Pleydell, the wife of the first Earl. They have been politicians (the grandfather Of Lord Folkestone was remarkable for a liberalism somewhat in advance Of his time), lawyers, country gentlemen, and good sportsmen, and the subject Of our present sketch has fairly inherited the family tastes and pursuits. Born in 1841, he was educated at Harrow and Trinity, Cambridge; was entered early to hounds, as become his father's son, and now goes well with the Vale ot White Horse. For the last year or two Lord Folkestone has had a few horses home-trained upon the Berkshire downs, but the Claret body and orange sleeves are not Often seen, and when seen they have not been in the van. He is one Of the few good sportsmen who love the Sport for sport's sake; he never bets, and therefore he ought to win. We will hope that, even with his small stud, there is a good time coming.
