Brigadier-General George Baillie-Hamilton, Lord Binning, CB, MVO, ADC, DL (24 December 1856 – 12 January 1917) was a British Army officer; he was styled "Lord Binning" as a courtesy title.
He was born in 1856, the second child and eldest son of George Baillie-Hamilton-Arden, 11th Earl of Haddington and Helen Katherine, daughter of Sir John Warrender, 5th baronet of Lochend by Frances Arden. 
Educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge,  he was commissioned in the Royal Horse Guards on 11 September 1880. 
Baillie-Hamilton served with distinction in the 1882 Anglo-Egyptian War and the Nile Expedition of 1884. In 1889 he was appointed aide-de-camp to the Viceroy of India during the Black Mountain Expedition, being mentioned in despatches.  From 1899 to 1903 he was commanding officer of the Royal Horse Guards. As such he was involved in the military arrangements for the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in August 1902, and three days after the ceremony he was appointed a Member (4th class) of the Royal Victorian Order (MVO) on 12 August 1902, during a private audience with King Edward VII.   He retired from the army in 1907, but remained in the Territorial Force as commanding officer of the Lothians and Border Horse, and served as His Majesty's Lieutenant of the County of Berwick from 1901 until he died. 
He was appointed a temporary Brigadier-General in December 1915, on receiving command of 41st Brigade in 14th (Light) Division. He remained in command until April 1916, returning to Britain to take charge of the 11th Mounted Brigade. 
In 1892 he had married Katharine Millicent Salting, only child of Mr. W. S. Salting, with whom he had two sons and a daughter.  He died, aged sixty, five months before his father so did not inherit the title and possible election in the House of Lords (as a Scottish Representative Peer) as the Earl of Haddington; instead, it passed to his eldest son, George Baillie-Hamilton.  His widow, Lady Binning, donated Fenton House in Hampstead, London to the National Trust on her death in 1952.
Brigadier-General Thomas Pakenham, 5th Earl of Longford, KP, MVO, known as Lord Silchester until 1887, was an Irish peer and soldier.
Earl of Haddington is a title in the Peerage of Scotland. It was created in 1627 for the noted Scottish lawyer and judge Thomas Hamilton, 1st Earl of Melrose. He was Lord President of the Court of Session from 1616 to 1625. Hamilton had already been created Lord Binning in 1613 and Lord Binning and Byres, in the County of Haddington, and Earl of Melrose, in the County of Roxburgh, in 1619. These titles were also in the Peerage of Scotland. The title of the earldom derived from the fact that he was in possession of much of the lands of the former Melrose Abbey. However, Hamilton was unhappy with this title and wished to replace it with "Haddington". In 1627 he relinquished the earldom of Melrose and was instead created Earl of Haddington, with the precedence of 1619 and with limitation to his heirs male bearing the surname of Hamilton. This derived from the fact that he considered it a greater honour to take his title from a county rather than from an abbey. Hamilton was a member of the prominent Scottish family of that name and descended from John de Hamilton, younger son of Walter de Hamilton, who was granted the feudal barony of Cadzow and who is also the ancestor of the Dukes of Hamilton and Dukes of Abercorn.
