    Abstract

    It is ray proposal to base my thesis on the movements and institutions established by Lady Ishbel Aberdeen, and those other organisations to which she became affiliated. The Countess of Aberdeen was wife of the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, John Campbell Gordon, the 7th Earl of Aberdeen, Lord Haddo. They served in Ireland firstly and briefly in 1886, and more fully in the period 1906 until 1915. Politically they were Liberals and therefore supporters of Gladstone and his plans for Home Rule. Between these two periods in office in Ireland they served in many different capacities on behalf of the British government, including the post of Viceroyalty to Canada which they held from 1893-97.
