TO BE MARRIED NEXT WEEK:
LADY GEORGIANA CURZON AND LT. HOME KIDSTON. R.N.
The wedding of Lady Georgiana Curzon and Lt. Home Kidston, R.N. is to be on the 27th at Penn, Bucks, where the bride’s father, Lord Howe, has his seat. Lady Georgiana Curzon is Lord and Lady Howe’s only daughter, and bears a striking resemblance to her beautiful mother, who is also a Curzon and is the daughter of the late Colonel the Hon. Montagu Curzon. The bride-groom-elect is still a serving sailor and has been “on loan” to the New Zealand Naval Division for two years. He is the youngest son of the late Captain Glen Kidston and of Lady Windham. (Photographs: Fayer of Vienna, Dorland House)

Lady Georgiana and Home Kidston had one son, Glen Kidston, born 1937, who died in 2018 and is buried at Penn Street. Sadly Georgiana and Home’s marriage did not last and they divorced in 1943. Lady Georgiana remarried 1st December 1953, to Lewis Stanton Starkey (1906–1975).
“Georgie” died 11 January 1976. She is buried at Holy Trinity, Penn Street, and on her grave there are two lines by Tennyson: “Oh for the touch of a vanished hand, and the sound of a voice that is still“. The same lines which appear on her grand-mother’s memorial lych-gate at Penn Street.
