Thomas Vivian, (whose mother was a Cavell) married Lucy Glynn. Their son John Vivian, of Truro, became a Vice-Warden of the Stanneries. And it was his son, Sir Richard Hussey Vivian, who was in 1841 created the first Baron Vivian: famous in his day as being the man who led the last cavalry charge at Waterloo, which finally broke the back of Napoleon's army. He was later appointed Equerry to George IV, ultimately with the rank of Lt-General. He married Eliza de Crespigny, and their son, Hussey Crespigny the second Baron Vivian, became Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall, after a long spell of military service. He married Arabella Scott, who was in turn the daughter of Lady Arabella Brabazon, the sister of the Earl of Meath. The next in line to succession was Hussey Crespigny the third Baron Vivian, who was a diplomat - eventually to be appointed the British Ambassador in Rome from 1891-1893. His wife, the beautiful Louisa Alice Duff, caused a certain stir in those circles by having a nervous breakdown while they were still in office. But she was more or less restored to good health by Dr Axel Munthe, and was able to return to her maternal duties in raising a large family, amongst whom was my maternal grandfather, George Crespigny Brabazon the fourth Baron Vivian. George (by my mother's account) was a fierce eccentric, with a bullying streak and a love of practical jokes. At Eton, he had rowed in the VIII, and had been elected into Pop. He had then embarked upon a military career, serving as a cavalry officer with considerable distinction in both the Boer War, and in the first World War. Among his medals were the DSO, the Legion of Honour, and the Croix de Guerre, and he was eventually appointed Aide-de-camps to King Albert of the Belgians. His three sisters incidentally, were Maids of Honour to successive Queens Victoria, Alexandra and Elizabeth II. One of them was to many Field-Marshal Earl Haig, while George himself married Barbara Fanning, an Edwardian beauty with aspirations to go on the stage.
