Count Alexei Pavlovich Kapnist (a great grandson of the Ukrainian
writer) is known as the last owner of the Razumovsky House on the
Tverskaya Street, near the Moscow Kremlin. This is the house famed as
a meeting place of the so-called English Club, an exclusive society of
Russian aristocrats.

His mother, Emilia Alexeievna Lopukhina (29.2.1848 - 19.10.1904) was
the daughter of Alexei Alexandrovich Lopukhin (29.9.1813 - 9.12.1872)
by Pss Varvara Alexandrovna Obolenskaya (10.1.1819 - 20.7.1873).

So, if Dominique's hypothesis is true, then Olga Villiers was
connected with major families of Russian aristocracy through the
Lopukhins, Obolenskys, and Trubetskoys.

Best wishes, Andrey

Lord Grimthorpe, OBE, DL, the fourth Baron, soldier, company director,
landowner, peer of the turf, died 6 July, 2003, aged 87.

Lord Grimthorpe, of Westow Hall, near York, had a distinguished
military career, retiring from the Army in 1968 as a Brigadier. He was
deputy commander of Malta and Libya from 1964-67 and served as an ADC
to the Queen.

He was Colonel Commanding 9th Queen's Royal Lancers, 1955-58, Colonel
9th/12th Lancers (PWO) from 1973, Brigadier Royal Armoured Corps
Western Command, 1961-64, and served as a Deputy Lieutenant for North
Yorkshire from 1969.

Christopher John Beckett was born 16 September, 1915, eldest son of
the 3rd Lord Grimthorpe, TD, (1891-1963), a partner in the banking
firm of Beckett and Co., of Leeds, Yorkshire, by his first wife, Mary
Alice, daughter of Colonel Mervyn Archdale, 12th Lancers.

Christopher Beckett was educated at Eton.

He succeeded his father as fourth Baron and eighth Baronet, 1963.

Lord Grimthorpe was a director of Thirsk Race Committee, and was a
member of the Jockey Club.

His father, of Easthorpe Hall, Malton, ran a stud in North Yorkshire
where he - and his second wife Angela -bred Fragrant Mac which won the
Scottish Grand National in 1952. The best horse they owned however was
Fortina, winner of the 1947 Cheltenham Gold Cup.

He also served as a consultant and sales respresentative with Sir
Alfred McAlpine and Son Ltd.

In 1973 he joined the board of Yorkshire Post Newspapers where his
uncle, the Hon Rupert Beckett, had been chairman for 30 years,
1920-50.

In February, 1954, he married Lady Elizabeth Lumley, daughter of the
Earl of Scarbrough, Lord Chamberlain to the Queen.

The wedding took place at the Queen's Chapel, Marlborough Gate,
sometimes called the Marlborough House Chapel, by special permission
of the sovereign, and the wedding reception took place at St James's
Palace. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, & the
Duchess of Gloucester attended.

In 1973 Lady Grimthorpe joined the household of the Queen Mother as a
Lady of the Bedchamber, and remained in that post at Clarence House
until the death of Her Majesty last year.

Lord Grimthorpe was appointed OBE (military) in 1958.

He is survived by Lady Grimthorpe, two sons, Edward John and Ralph
Daniel, and a daughter, Harriet.

The peerage and baronetcy now devolve upon the elder son, Edward, born
20 November, 1954, who married in May, 1992, Mrs Carey Elisabeth
McEwen, daughter of Mr & Mrs Robin Graham, by whom he has a son &
heir, born 28 April, 1993.

A private funeral is followed by a thanksgiving service on Wednesday
16 July, 2003, at York Minster.

Do we know anything about a Countess Kapnist ?
It would have been great if you mentioned her patronimic. She could be
a daughter/sister of Count Alexei Petrovich Kapnist (1916-93) who is
buried on Ste Genevieve des Bois in Paris. The Kapnists (original
name: Capnissi) obtained their comital title in the Venetian Republic
17-Jan-1702.

All best wishes, Andrey

Thanks. But the Telegraph notice merely said Olga Villiers (nee

Count Alexei have also been a Countess ?

Of course she would have been a Countess, like all male-line
descendants of Stomatello Capnissi who obtained the title in 1702. In
Russian sources they are mistakenly discribed as 'counts of the
Italian Kingdom': they were recognized as such by the Russian
authorities in 1876 and 1877.

The most illustrious member of the family, Count Vasili Kapnist
(12.2.1758, Obukhovka - 28.10.1823, Kibinzy), is regarded as the first
satiric poet in the Ukrainian literature. His son Count Ivan Kapnist
(1798-1860) was the Governor of Smolensk, then of Moscow; three of his
grandsons were senators. Another line of the family descends from the
marriage of Count Piotr Mikhailovich Kapnist with Catherine
d'Allonville, granddaughter of the famous Field-Marshal Munich.
Representatives of this line are living in Venice.

Olga Villers (nee Kapnist) was my grandmother. Her father was Count Alexei Kapnist but died sometime after 1919 in Ukraine. I'm researching the journey my grandmother and her family took through Europe after fleeing their home in 1919.

Yes - both were created for (Thomas) Hamar Greenwood, and he left two
sons - the 2nd and 3rd Viscounts - both were unmarried.

They can have received the title from the Venetian Republic but not in the
Venetian Republic: Venetian patricians had no title (at list as Venetian
patricians). But titles were given to nobles of the subject cities and
countries. What was the origin of the Capnissi exactly?

He may for some sessions have been the longest-serving member to

Lord Oranmore & Browne,who inherited his qualifying title of Lord
Mereworth in 1927 when already of adult age,retained his right to sit
until the House of Lords Act 1999.The Earl Haig,who inherited his
title before Lord Listowel but only came of age afterward,did sit
at times until the HoL Act...since the Act the "Father" has been
the Earl Jellicoe,who inherited in 1935,came of age in 1939,and
received a life peerage in 1999 in recognition of his having been
a former Leader of the Lords(he resigned in a sex scandal and became

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
From the Times, March 15, 1982: "Honorary Father" --There is no Father
of the House of Lords, presumably because titular membership is no
indication of attendance or activity. Lord Romilly has been a peer for
77 years, since succeeding his father at the age of six in 1905, and
has yet to make his maiden speech.

Still, today the Earl of Listowel celebrates 50 years' activity in the
Upper House. He made his maiden speech on March 15, 1932, presumably
from the opposition front bench since he was, at that time, only one
of six opposition peers. He still takes an important part, and only
last week was presiding on the Woolsack. He was the older brother of
the Conservative former minister Lord Blakenham, who died a week ago,
and is, the father of the active Lords."

I forgot to mention in the thread "1960s Debrett" that she and her
sisters (including the Dowager Marchioness of Abergavenny, widow of
the 5th Marquess) are descendants of King James VI & I (via their
twice-married maternal grandmother, IIRC).


The former Sybil Mary Marshal (d. 3 May 1933) was the 1st dau. of Lt
Gen Sir Frederick Marshall KCMG. She married 1stly 1887 (div 1912)
the Hon. William Arnold Webster-Levy, later (1933) the 3rd Baron
Burnham [succ his brother the 1st and last Viscount), and 2ndly 1912
1912 the 2nd Baron Hamilton of Dalzell. Interestingly, her
great-niece by marriage Rosemary Coke (granddaughter maternally of the
2nd Baron and 1st and last Viscount Burnham) married her husband's
nephew and heir the 3rd Baron Hamilton of Dalzell. There was also an
interesting connection to the beauty Lillie Langtry via her first
husband's elder brother.

Lord Grimthorpe, OBE, DL, the fourth Baron, soldier, company director,
Christopher John Beckett was born 16 September, 1915, eldest son of
the 3rd Lord Grimthorpe, TD, (1891-1963), a partner in the banking
firm of Beckett and Co., of Leeds, Yorkshire, by his first wife, Mary
Alice, daughter of Colonel Mervyn Archdale, 12th Lancers.
How is the late Lord Grimthorpe related to the late 3rd Marquess of
Zetland? IIRC both had mothers who were Archdales, daughters of a
Col. Mervyn Archdale. Were Cicely and Mary Alice sisters?

Susan Mary "Shoe" Guinness-Taylor, who died 17 July, 2003, was the
mistress of the third Baron Moyne, and mother of three of his
children, Diana, Aster and Tom. Shoe, a butcher's daughter, was
christened Susan Mary Taylor. Moyne met her in Spain in 1978, she had
left England to see the world inspired, curiously, by The Sound of
Music. What Shoe did next was not Rodgers amd Hammerstein. She rode a
hermaphrodite circus elephant in Lebanon, worked topless as the
"strongest woman in the world", did time in Holloway Prison for drugs
and suffered for a time from bulimia. In 1980 she became pregnant with
Moyne's child. She later lived in Cornwall, and Moyne paid for the
rent and upkeep of their three children. At some stage she assumed the
additional surname of Guinness before that of Taylor.
A link to some biographical details of Lord Moyne:-

I don't know the family, but the name looks Georgian to me.
At this website a certain Princess Tamara Dragadze is described as a
member of the Royal House of Georgia (the family of the last Empress)
and that the Dragadze family compares with the Bourbons as one of the
oldest families in Europe.

Nonsense. IIRC the last Empress (rather, Queen) of Georgia was Thamar
who died 800 years ago. The Royal House of Georgia is called Bagratuni
not Dragadze. It is also unclear which of its branches should be
styled 'the Royal House'.

The Dragadze family is not mentioned in the full list of the Georgian
princely families prepared by the penultimate Georgian king as a
supplement to the Treaty of Georgievsk. Such a family was not
recognized as princely by Russian imperial authorities as well.

Even greater nonsense. The male-line of the royal Bagratuni (not
Dragadze!) family dates back to the 12/13th century. The male-line of
the Bourbons dates back to the 7/8th century.

With best wishes, Andrey

What about Russudan, and more recently Thamar II (17th century IIRC)?

I think Zetland & Grimthorpe were first cousins - the children of
sisters - sadly I do not possess a Landed Gentry of Ireland.

Colonel Mervyn Henry Archdale (properly Montgomery), 12th Lancers, was
born in 1852, son of Capt Mervyn Edward Archdale (or Montgomery), of
Castle Archdale, Limerick, County Fermanagh, MP, DL, JP, by his wife
Emma Inez, daughter of Jacob Goulding, of London and Kew.

Mervyn Henry Archdale m. (firstly?) 28 Nov. 1883, Mary (d. 1890),
eldest daughter of General Sir Henry Perceval de Bathe, 4th Bt,
(1823-1907) by his wife Charlotte Clare, & had issue, a son, b. 1890.

Were the daughters born to Mervyn's second spouse? Someone with an
early 20th century edition of Debrett's (de Bathe Bt) could tell us
whether the girls were granddaughters of the 4th Bt. Cicely Archdale
married Zetland in Dec. 1907, but at what age? If she was born to a
second wife of Col Archdale then she could only have been 16 or 17.
I'll investigate further.

Unfortunately Debrett 1919 omitted mention of any of the daughters of
Gen. Sir Henry de Bathe, 4th Bt. (whose marriage took place on 27 Dec
1870), although they would normally have been included. Certainly
three daughters were alive and listed in Burke's 1939:

Viscountess Burnham (Olive);
Winifred, Mrs Harry McCalmont, widow of William Fanning;
Baroness Somerleyton (Phyllis).

No mention of Mary (who as a deceased daughter would normally have
been listed at that time by Burke's without details of issue), and the
relevant Archdale also avoids a mention in either book, although a
possible brother appears in Debrett 1919 (Companionage):
Brig-Gen Hugh James Archdale, born 1854, son of the late Capt Mervyn
A., of Castle Archdale.

Hopefully Landed Gentry of Ireland has a more complete picture.

All Angels, Withyham, East Sussex, of Mr Antony Simon Underwood,

Gore-Langton and the late Lady Joan Gore-Langton, of South Park,

The bride who was given away by her father, was attended by Elizabeth
Wemyss, Laura Tyser, Sarah Underwood, Freddy Green, Freddy Dashwood,
Miss Nina Kenyon and Miss Victoria Hulbert-Powell. Mr. Jonathan
Cameron-Hayes was best man.

A reception was held at Buckhurst Park, Withyham, by courtesy of Earl
