"JOHN CAMPBELL GORDON, ABERDEEN AND TEMAIR 1ST MARQUESS OF (1847-), British politician ( see 1.47), retained his office as Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland until 1915. On his retirement he was created Marquess of Aberdeen and Temair, the latter title being a form of the place-name Tara, chosen for its connexion with the history of Ireland. His wife, Ishbel Maria (b. 1857) - daughter of Dudley Marjoribanks, 1st Baron Tweedmouth - whom he married in 1877, took a prominent part in charitable work during her residence in Ireland, becoming president of the Irish Industries Association and other societies. She did excellent work in increasing the number of nurses and establishing committees for the improvement of sanitary conditions and combating the spread of tuberculosis in Ireland. She published in 1908 Ireland's Crusade against Tuberculosis.
