said that the earldom is now extinct, but
that the barony of Howard descends to
Gen. Kenneth Howard, who, it will be re-
collected, had a considerable legacy, un-
der the will of the late Duke of Norfolk,
Thomas the third Earl having been absent
from town soon after the riots in 1780, it
was absurdly reported, at the time, that he
had been shot in the disguise of a chim-

ney-sweeper. The mother of this noble-
man, as well as her second husband the
late Sir George Howard, enjoyed her Ma-
jesty's favour, about whose person the
former held an official situation; and her
son, Earl Thomas, was in 1784 appointed
Secretary and Comptroller of her Majes-
ty's household, which he held till his death,
in 1794.
