Du Pre Alexander, 2nd Earl of Caledon

Silhouette of the 2nd Earl of CaledonDu Pré Alexander, 2nd Earl of Caledon KP (14 December 1777 – 8 April 1839), styled The Honourable Du Pré Alexander from 1790 to 1800 and Viscount Alexander from 1800 to 1802, was an Irish peer, landlord and colonial administrator, and was the second child and only son of James Alexander, 1st Earl of Caledon. The Caledon Cape Papers illuminate this shadowy area between political and public service. He sold the borough in 1820 to his cousins Josias du Pré Alexander and James Alexander. Lord Caledon was invested as a Knight of St Patrick on 20 August 1821 and was appointed Lord Lieutenant of County Tyrone in 1831. 'Lord Caledon', wrote Inglis in his book Ireland (1834), 'is all that could be desire – a really good resident country gentleman'.
