The Honourable Ronald Adair was a British noble. He was the second son of the Earl of Maynooth, governor of an Australian colony. His murder at his Park Lane home in 1894 shocked London's fashionable society and confounded the police, who only managed to solve the case after the reappearance of Sherlock Holmes. The crime was found to be the work of Colonel Sebastian Moran, the former second-in-command of Professor James Moriarty.
