Egremont William Lascelles, DL (1825-92), Harewood, Leeds; Capt, Grenadier Guards, 1847; Major, 1st West Yorks Militia, 1852; Conservative MP for Northallerton 1866-8. Lascelles, a prominent figure at race meetings in Yorkshire from the late 1840s until the late 1870s, was a keen sportsman, steward, owner of racehorses and rode to hounds. The second pass was presumably used by his wife, Jessie Elizabeth, née Malcolm (1829-1900), who married Lascelles in December 1856.
