7 July 1883Captain the Hon. John Carnegie, R.N., brother of the Earl of Southesk, died on Thursday at his lodgings in Pall mall. The deceased was the second son of the late Sir James Carnegie, sixth baronet (who, but for an attainder, would have been eighth Earl of Southesk), by his marriage with Charlotte, daughter of the Rev. Daniel Lysons, of Hempstead-court, Gloucestershire, and he was born in October, 1829. He entered the Navy in 1842, became captain in 1870, and was placed on the retired list in 1873. In 1846-7 he took part in the New Zealand war, and also served as lieutenant on board the Sidon in the Black Sea throughout the Crimean war, and was present at the bombardment of Kertch, Kinburn, &c., and at the fall of Sebastopol. For these latter services he received the Crimean and Turkish medals, with clasps for Sebastopol and Azoff. Captain Carnegie was a deputy-lieutenant for Forfarshire, and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He was raised to the rank of an earl’s son by Royal warrant in 1855.
