    Sad times: The Right Honourable Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham looked distressed at Matthew's graveside

    Hugh "Shrimpy" MacClare Marquess of Flintshire, is Laird of Duneagle, a magnificent castle in the Scottish Highlands. While Robert covets Shrimpy's ancestral pile, there is nothing to envy in Shrimpy's loveless marriage to Violet's unhappy niece, Susan. Often antagonizing his wife by trying to protect their free-spirited daughter, Rose, from Susan's over-critical eye, Shrimpy is concerned about Rose's well-being, especially if a foreign office posting requires him to take his family to India.
