Information about Charlotte Murray, Duchess of Atholl

Charlotte Murray, Duchess of Atholl (13 October 1731 - 13 October 1805)

Charlotte Murray, Duchess of Atholl, the 8th Baroness Strange was a Scottish peer. Born Lady Charlotte Murray, she was the daughter of the 2nd Duke of Atholl. On 23 October 1753, she married her first cousin, John Murray at Dunkeld, Scotland. They had nine children.

In 1765, Charlotte Murray sold the suzerainty of the Isle of Man to the British government for £70,000 and an annuity of £2,000. By the passage of the Isle of Man Purchase Act 1765 the title of Lord of Mann was revested into the British Crown. It has therefore since been used on the Isle of Man to refer to the reigning Monarch of the United Kingdom.
