The couple must have gone out to Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) to farm in the early years of their marriage, as the present Duke was born there. The Marquess stayed there for several years as he was a member of the Rhodesian parliament and held ministerial office on several occasions. He had four children by his second wife, the youngest born thirty years after this wedding!

Huge throngs of people again, probably hoping that the Gloucesters and maybe other royalty, would turn up. At least not freezing weather this time, although rain in April isn't exactly unknown. The couple had three children, but one died in infancy. The third offspring appeared in the year after the end of the war, a quite common occurrence! The Dawnays' only son joined the army, a bit strange with his father a distinguished naval man, but, oh well!

Looks like this couple married at Falkland Palace, Fifeshire, a beautiful old Scottish hunting lodge of the Kings of Scotland, in the ownership later of the Marquesses of Bute, the bride's family. The marriage, in spite of this, the attendant Girl Guide troop and the ten bridesmaids, didn't withstand the test of time however. After six years and two children the couple were divorced. They both remarried quickly, very quickly in the Earl's case. He had a new bride installed before Christmas 1936. Ismay, the bride here, didn't waste time crying into her soup either. She remarried in August 1937. Their son Adam (unusual first name for someone born in the 1930's) succeeded his father as Earl but doesn't use his title.

All the village women gathered to inspect and comment later!

This is another union that didn't survive. The bride was very young when she married, just 20. There was one child, who became the 8th Earl, and then divorce in 1938. Something tells me that it might have had something to do with Rose's feelings rather than the Earl's as, although he married twice more, his next venture into matrimony was in 1942.

Rose on the other hand leaped from the divorce court to matrimony in one fell swoop, marrying again in September 1938. This was to a wealthy American called Fiske, who was an Olympic champion and lived one heck of a life.

Sadly this marriage did not last long as he was killed in action in August 1940, during the Battle of Britain, the first American-born pilot to do so.

The groom was heir to the Marquis of Bute and inherited the title in his turn. He was a keen ornithologist and bought the Isles of St Kilda which were left to the nation for use as a bird sanctuary.

The village turned out for this young couple, including 'the tenantry'! The commentary was in those very clipped tones adopted by broadcasters in those days which you never hear now.

Lady Eileen the bride, whose mother was an American heiress, immediately embarked on baby-bearing duties. Boy twins were born about nine months after the wedding, followed by another son and then, after a long gap, a daughter.
