The Viscount Dalrymple, also known as Lord Dalrymple, is a character mentioned in Persuasion. He was married to Lady Dalrymple and they had at least one daughter, Miss Carteret. He died before the course of the novel, thus he does not appear in the book at all.
He is related to Sir Walter Elliot and was friends with the man before his death. As Sir Walter was also ill at the time of his death, the Elliots neglected to send a letter of condolence to Lord Dalrymple's family, thereby having the Dalrymples sever the acquaintance.
