The Hon. Ethel Henrietta Maria Cadogan, who died on Tuesday at the age
of 77, as reported in another column, was the second daughter of the
Hon. Frederick William Cadogan, M.P. (fourth son of the third Earl
Cadogan), by his marriage to Lady Adelaide, daughter of the Marquess
of Angelsey. Her sisters are Mrs. Villiers, widow of the Rev. H. M.
Villiers, and the Hon. Mrs. Bagot, widow of Major the Hon. Walter
Lewis Bagot, D.S.O. Miss Cadogan was appointed a Maid of Honour to
Queen Victoria in 1880, having been an extra Maid of Honour from 1876.
In 1897 she was promoted to be a Bedchamber Woman in Ordinary, and
served until the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. She was afterwards
received into the Roman Catholic Church. She was one of the few
surviving members of the Royal Order of Victoria and Albert.
Before the War Miss Cadogan was well known as an amateur actress, and
she organized many amateur children's plays in London in aid of
charities. In the War she joined the French Red Cross and nursed the
wounded in France for 16 months at Le Touquet, in the French Military
Hospital at Voic, in the East of France, and in hospitals in Paris
during 1915 and 1916. Miss Cadogan was a great fancier of dogs,
especially toy Pekingese and Japanese spaniels.
