The last of his line. Another hereditary peerage goes.

Very sad.

Yes and a nice sounding title too, Dunraven and Mount Earl, but it has
long been on the list of no hope peerages, Kitchener delights me each
time a new copy of Debretts comes out and it is still extant and long
may that be so. It would be nice if H.M made new creations for
existing hereditary peers who have no male heirs, with a remainder
similar to the Lucus barony that is tied up with the lordship of
Dingwell.

An earldom with "Earl" in the title. We are almost in the territory of
"Lord Lord" here. Are there any other examples?

The Earldom was created for the 1st Viscount Mount Earl. I suspect the
"Dunraven" was added to avoid the oddity of him being simply "Earl of
Mount Earl".

This is the second earldom to become extinct in less than a year.

Halsbury was lost in 2010.
