    Arthur Lawley, 6th Baron Wenlock, GCIE, KCMG (12 November 1860–14 June 1932) was Governor of Western Australia from 1901 to 1902. He also worked as lieutenant governor of Transvaal from 1902 to 1905. The Perth suburb of Mount Lawley is named after him. Lawley was a son of the 2nd Baron Wenlock (1818–1880) and he served with the 10th Hussars, rising to the rank of Captain. On 15 October 1885, he married Annie Cunard, a daughter of Sir Edward Cunard, 2nd Baronet and they had three children: Hon. Margaret Cecilia Lawley (d. 1969) Hon. Richard Edward Lawley (9 May 1887–4 September 1909), killed in India in a hunting accident. Hon. Ursula Mary Lawley (born 8 June 1888–16 October 1979) He succeeded as Baron Wenlock on the death of his elder brother, the 5th Baron, who died without male heirs (as did his other two elder brothers), on 14 June 1931. Lawley died exactly a year later in 1932 in Freiberg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany and as he also did not have any male heirs, his title became extinct. Source:
