This photo of Countess (Alice Holford) and Earl Grey was taken in 1904 at the beginning of his tenure as Governor General of Canada. Grey returned to England in 1911, where he died in 1917.

This terrace on the Plains of Abraham, overlooking the St. Lawrence River, is named in honour of Sir Albert Henry George Grey, the fourth Earl Grey. Born in London, England, in 1851, he was Governor General of Canada from 1904 to 1911. He died in 1917.
