Elizabeth Luttrell, eldest sister of the Duchess of Cumberland, Lady Anne Frederick.  She was called in derision Princess Elizabeth, being a coarse, unprincipled woman, devoured by a love of play.

This passion brought about her tragical end.  She was imprisoned in the Fleet for her gambling debts; and gave a hairdresser 50 pounds to marry her, which, according to the then state of the debtors' law, enabled her to procure a release.  She went to Germany, where she was convicted of picking pockets, was sentenced, and condemned to clean the streets chained to a wheelbarrow.  The unfortunate woman poisoned herself.


On the 11th of March, 1797, her Ladyship (Lady Buckinghamshire), together with Lady E. Lutterell and a Mrs Stuart, were convicted at the Marlborough Street Police-court, in the penalty of £50, for playing at the game of Faro; and Henry Martindale was convicted in the sum of £200, for keeping the Faro table at Lady Buckinghamshire's. The witnesses had been servants of her Ladyship, recently discharged on account of a late extraordinary loss of 500 guineas from her Ladyship's house, belonging to the Faro bank.[103]
