[6] The New Times reported that she attended a fashionable party, with her brother, on 11 July 1826 at the Dowager Countess of Cork's home in New Burlington Street, London [7]

On 11 November 1842, the case of Beauclerk v Beauclerk in the Vice Chancellor's Court, London was heard on Lady Charlotte's petition to receive £10,642 for her maintenance under the term's of her late father's will. Order was granted. [8]
