The 10th Duke of Richmond, who revived the fortunes of the Goodwood estate and caused a society scandal when he adopted two mixed-race girls more than half a century ago, has died at the age of 87.
Charles Gordon Lennox moved to Goodwood House in 1967, when the sprawling 17th Century West Sussex property was a decaying wreck with a neglected 2,500-acre estate and racecourse.
Last night, the Duke's son, Charles, the Earl of March and Kinrara, said: 'He really was a most unorthodox aristocrat, very liberal, non-conformist – really quite anti-establishment in his way.'When he and my mother moved into Goodwood my grandparents had moved out and the place was falling down.
But it was horse racing that put Goodwood on the map.
The course originally opened in 1802 and was little changed before the Duke had the grandstand rebuilt.
They had to invest what little money they had into it.'He and my mother were both free-thinkers, very involved in the church and Africa.
He was anti-apartheid and liberal – but unlike many he did things about it.'In the early 1960s, the Duke adopted two mixed-race girls, Maria and Naomi, aged six months.
