(from Wikipedia entry)

Lord Adalbert Cecil (18 July 1841- 12 June 1889) was the son of the second Marquis of Exeter. He was born 18th July 1841. A member of the Plymouth Bretheren, Cecil was a missionary in Britain, before travelling to Canada. Here he was called to higher service in a tragic manner as this newspaper report indicates: "Lord Adalbert Cecil was drowned on the 12th of June near Adolphustown, Western Canada, through the upsetting of his boat as he was crossing the bay of Quinte to regain his camp. Buried in Napanee, Ontario. Little is related concerning his early boyhood but as a young man he seems to have come under the influence of the well-known missioner, Rev. William Haslam. The conversion story is in one of his books entitled "Lord A—" referring to Lord Adalbert. After his conversion to God he made rapid progress in divine things, becoming an earnest evangelistic worker and one able to minister the word to profit. In his position he was free to devote all his energies to the work nearest to his heart, and so was "always abounding in the work of the Lord".
