The Baron Latymer, the 8th holder of the Peerage of England created
1431/2, a member of the Coutts banking dynasty, died 10 November,
2003. He was aged 77.

Hugo Nevill Money-Coutts was born 1 March, 1926, the son of the 7th
Lord Latymer by his wife Patience Courtenay-Thompson, and was educated
at Eton.

He succeeded to the peerage on the death of his father in 1987. He was
twice married; firstly, in 1951, to the Hon Penelope Anne Clare Emmet
(b. 1932), younger dau of Mr Thomas Addis Emmet, of Amberley Castle,
Sussex, and of Baroness Emmet of Amberley, by whom he had two sons,
Crispin and Giles and one daughter, Clare; married secondly, in 1965,
to Jinty Anne, (b. 1940), daughter of Peter George Calvert, and a
great-granddaughter of the 1st
Lord Ashcombe, and thus a kinswoman of Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles. He
had a further son, Henry, and two daughters, Vera & Fanny, from this
marriage.

The Latymer barony was created for Sir George Nevill, a son of the
first Earl of Westmorland, of whom Burke's Peerage recorded that he
"went mad by 11 June 1451, but remained only intermittently so since
he went on being called to Parliament for another 18 years".

George's grandson, the second baron, helped suppress the revolts of
Lambert Simnel and Perkin Warbeck, and fought at the battle of
Flodden; the third baron was a leader of the Pilgrimage of Grace -
though he claimed to have been so under duress, and was pardoned - and
married as his third wife Catherine Parr, who went on (in her own
third marriage) to be the sixth wife of Henry VIII.

The fourth baron died without a male heir in 1577, and the title was
in abeyance until 1912, when the Committee of Privileges of the House
of Lords ruled, in the absence of other claimants, that it had passed
through one of the fourth baron's daughters to Francis Burdett Thomas
Money-Coutts.

The peerage now devolves upon his Lordship's eldest son, the Hon
Crispin Mooney-Coutts (b. 8 March, 1955), twice married (his first
spouse was the Hon Lucy Rose Deedes, daughter of the former
Conservative Minister, & Daily Telegraph editor, Lord Deedes).

The 14th Earl of Cork & Orrery, DSC, VRD, died 14 November, 2003. He
was aged 87.

The Earl was also Baron Boyle of Youghal (1616), Viscount Dungarvan
(1620), Baron Boyle of Broghill (1621), Viscount Boyle of Kinalmeaky
and Baron of Bandon Bridge (1621), Earl of Orrery (1660), all in the
peerage of Ireland; and Baron Boyle of Marston (1711), in the peerage
of Gt Britain.

His elder brother, the 13th Earl, was a former Deputy Chairman of
Committees, House of Lords, who wrote occasionally for Punch. With his
wife Dorothy writing the scripts, he presented and illustrated a
children's series on ITV about a small boy called Tum.

Their uncle - the 12th Earl - who died in April, 1967, aged 93, was a
monocled Admiral of the Fleet, known as _Ginger_ Boyle, much admired
by Churchill, and who commanded the combined expedition for the
capture of Narvik in 1940.

The first Earl had been an enterprising lawyer from Hereford and Kent
and had left to seek his fortune in Ireland in the early 17th century,
with only 37 shillings and sixpence in his pocket. His success was
unqualified. After buying up lands of the lately executed Sir Walter
Raleigh, he went on to acquire a substantial chunk of southern
Ireland. He was ennobled by James I on being made Chancellor of
Ireland, where he was known as the _Great Earl_ and had 14 sons - all
but one of whom became peers.

The exception was perhaps the most famous, Robert Boyle, sometimes
known as the _Father of Modern Chemistry_, whose Boyle's Law has since
been drummed into countless generations of schoolchildren.

But the family lost most of its land in Ireland, Yorkshire and the
west end of London many years ago when they passed through marriage of
a Boyle heiress to the Duke of Devonshire.

John William Boyle was born 12 May, 1916, younger son of the Hon
Reginald Courtenay Boyle, MBE, MC (who died in 1946 great-grandson of
the 8th Earl), by his wife Violet (died 1974), daughter of Arthur
Flower.

John Boyle was educated at Harrow and King's College, London (BSc).

Career: Fellow, Institute of Civil Engineers; Served in the War of
1939-45, in the Royal Navy with the Home and Mediterranean Fleet;
Lieutenant-Commander, RNVR, 1939-54; was twice mentioned in
despatches; awarded the DSC 1945; VRD 1952; Consultant with Sir
Alexander Gibb and Partners, subsequently Gibb PE Consulting Group,
&c; Chief Engineer, Ind Coope Ltd.

He succeeded to the family honours on the demise of his elder brother,
8 August, 1995.

Lord Cork & Orrery, of Dunkeld, Perthshire, married in 1943, Mary
Leslie, the only daughter of General Sir Robert Gordon-Finlayson, KCB,
CMG, DSO, by whom he had three sons, John Richard (Jonathan), Robert,
and Reginald.

The peerages now devolve on the eldest son, styled Viscount Dungarvan,
born 3 November, 1945, who is married with one son and two daughters.

I've always liked his epitaph (sometimes said to be inscribed on his
tomb, although I believe this isn't true). It called him "Father of
Chemistry and Uncle of the Earl of Cork".

Lady (Marguerite) Kathleen Birnie, who died 21 November, 2003, aged
92, was a daughter of the 16th Earl of Devon, of Powderham Castle,
Devon.

She was born (Marguerite) Kathleen Courtenay, 15 February, 1911, when
her uncle was the 14th Earl. He was an inspector of the Board of
Agriculture, but he died unmarried in 1927, aged 56. He was succeeded
by his next brother, Henry, also unmarried, then rector of Powderham.
He, in turn, died in February, 1935, aged 62, and Marguerite's father
became the 16th Earl. He was also a man of the cloth, who served as
rector of Honiton, Devon, and later as rural dean. He and his wife,
Marguerite, the daughter of John Silva, of Itchen Abbas, Hampshire,
had seven children. There were four daughters and a son (who died
after three days) before a heir, Charles, was safely born in 1916.

Marguerite was the 3rd daughter; her father held the earldom for only
four months, dying in June, 1935, aged 59, whereupon her brother
succeeded. Because so many earls died in quick succession, the family
was badly hit by death duties and a considerable amount of land was
sold.

The Courtenays traced their ancestry back through the Marquess of
Exeter, who attended King Henry VIII at the Field of the Cloth of
Gold, to earlier Earls of Devon and, as is claimed in Burke's Peerage,
to "the Historic Frankish House of Courtenay, whose pennon waved at
Crecy and Agincourt and on crusades in the Holy Land." Other sources
traced the family back to Baldwin FitzGilbert, Seigneur de Meules
(Sheriff of Devon between 1080 and 1086) and, through him, back to an
illegitimate son of Richard I, Duke of the Normans. Another
distinguished ancestor was Sir Hugh de Courtenay, who was in France at
the siege of Calais in 1347 and was created a founder Knight of the
Garter in 1348.

Lady Marguerite married in 1933, Colonel Eugene St John Birnie, OBE,
Indian Army (retired), who died in 1976, by whom she had two
daughters, Susan and Angela.

Shinjinee posted and Michael updated in March 2002,originated in

I believe this to be a current list of octogenarian heirs to peerages
(baronies unless otherwise stated), and I've asterisked those whom I
believe were also heirs after the group had last revised the list in
March 2002. I make it 12 heirs remaining from the earlier 17, and
note two cases (Chelmsford, and Cullen of Ashbourne) where the
previous heir was succeeded as heir by a younger brother who was also
an octogenarian.

*1. Hon. David Layton, M.B.E., born 5 July 1914 (LAYTON)
*2. Hon. Patrick B.V.M. Acheson, born 4 February 1915 (Earldom of
GOSFORD)
*3. Antony J.T. Harris, born 5 August 1915 (HARRIS)

I checked DeBrett's 2003. It lists the same address for the Hon.
Robin Borwick as that shown in the newspaper announcement. Sadly, I
think we must conclude the Hon. Robin Borwick has died.

New heir presumptive would be his eldest son (Geoffrey Robert) James
(Jamie), according to DeBrett's. He was born March 7, 1955. He is
married with 4 children, 3 of them sons.
