William Haines (1778-1848)
MARRIAGE TO LADY EMILY WELLESLEY-POLE 'I had rather see my daughter married to him, than to the richest Duke in the Kingdom, so admirable do I think his conduct and disposition. Besides which, with his talents, and industry and high character, he is quite sure to become a most distinguished man' - Lady Emily Wellesley-Pole's sister recalling their father's words towards Lord FitzRoy Somerset.
William Haines (1778-1848)
