as far as i am aware they are aristocrats ,(Viscountess) if I am not mistaken.

And also cousins of the queen. there grand mother was the late princess mary, princess royal.

Are you sure they're brothers? I thought James was the son of George Lascelles and Martin was the son of George's younger brother Gerald.

I don't know anything about their weddings, but I thought they were cousins, not brothers.

Martin Lascelles married Charmaine Eccleston in Kingston, Jamaica. She was born in Kingston in 1962, and they have a son, Alexandre, born in London in 2002.

The fact that a woman was born in Jamaica doesn't make her a black woman. Jamaica has white and black natives. So, unless there's proof she's black, then we can't assume.

Does it really matter if the lady is black or white as long as they are happy. I wish adults were like children when they play with their friends it doesn't matter what color they are I hope we are above the color issue everyone bleeds the same color blood red. Don't mean to sound rude but this is 2005 color should not be an issue.

No one ever said it was a big deal, but these are the first members of the extended Windsor family to possibly marry a different race, so it's natural some comment would be made. I've never read any negative commentary on the possible ethnicities of the two brides, so don't assume the statement about these women being black means its a big deal. The Lascelles themselves are hugely ignored in the press, and their various marriages, divorces, and children born before marriages are also ignored, except in genealogy books.

I wonder are there any pics of the lascelles

Elspeth 07-09-2005 09:01 PM

James Lascelles has his own website:

tonight on bbc 2 they are starting a new serie called "the slavery business" a drama based on the life of british slave trader Henry Lascelles, one of the richest businessmen of the 18th century and according to the bbc website his descendants are now cousins of the queen.

Elspeth 08-03-2005 01:39 PM

Well, let's have a link to the website, then. Don't leave us in suspense here!

I didn't know the UK had slavery. that was some neat infomation. I wouldn't want to be one of the families in the film...They must keep really good records of everything in the UK to know what has happened to the families involved...

do they descend from Mary, the Princess Royal, daughter of George V?

Elspeth 08-29-2005 09:26 PM

Yes; I think they're grandsons of hers.

Martin David Lascelles and Family
 
Hello all,

This is my first posting and I look forward to conversing more on the board. My question pertains to Martin David Lascelles and his second wife Charmaine Christine Eccleston. Does anyone know her birthdate? I also wonder when they were married, and if they have any children. I am doing a genealogy of the royal family and these dates and information would be helpful.

Best Regards,

Cameron Bryant

cbryant 11-07-2006 05:56 PM

Thanks so much! :smile: That's very helpful. I look forward to future discussions. Hope I can help others too!

You are right. :flowers: They are cousins

Martin is the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Collingwood and Gerald Lascelles (son of Henry George Charles Lascelles and Mary Windsor). Because he is illegitimate he is not entitled to be the Hon. Martin David Lascelles. He was born Martin Colvin, his name was legally changed to Lascelles in 1978

James is the 2nd son of George Lacelles, 7th Earl of Harewood (son of Henry George Charles Lascelles (Viscount) and the Princess Royal, Mary Windsor) and his mother is Countess Marion Donata Stein. Because he is legitimate he is the Hon James Edward Lascelles.
