The Duchess of Montrose was born Caroline Agnes Beresford, the daughter of Lord Decies.
James Graham, 4th Duke of Montrose, KT, PC (16 July 1799 – 30 December 1874) was a British politician.
He was the only son of his father's second marriage (to Caroline Marie Montagu, the daughter of the Duke of Manchester).
During the mid-nineteenth century he occupied minor positions outside the cabinet in the short-lived governments
of Lord Derby. He and his wife had one son, Douglas, who succeeded his father to the dukedom on the latter's death in 1874.
