Lord Harewood sells London home

October  26, 1931

The Earl of Harewood, husband of Princess Mary has "sold his famous town house, Chesterfield House," and rented his country estate, Goldsborough Hall in Yorkshire,  reports the New York Times.   Lord Harewood was forced to make these changes due to the increased income tax that he must now pay as one of "Britain's richest men."

Lord Harewood and Princess Mary are "making rigid all-around economies," and they are "endeavoring" to make sure that none of their employees lose their jobs.  The Earl has already sold some of his prized racehorses, and is now considering
"curtailing his Newmarket racing establishment," and plans to sell "some of his finest horses.
