Cumberland, Richard, 1732-1811.
The controversy over Lord Sackville's handling of the war continued. Following his death, a defence of Sackville's reputation, The character of the late Viscount Sackville, was written by Richard Cumberland. Some members were opposed to his taking a seat in the House of Lords, an almost unprecedented incident. In spite of this he was admitted to the Lords, where he was staunchly defended by Lord Thurlow, and his declining health soon made the issue irrelevant. He retired to his country home at Stoneland Lodge and died there in 1785. The Drayton House estate passed to his son Charles, who later became the 5th (and last) Duke of Dorset.
