Re: The Official Married Names Thread

United Kingdom
Born 28 May 1899
Died 13 January 1989
Married David Keir, 3 August 1939

From the London "Times", 4 August 1939: "The King and Queen sent Miss Thelma Cazalet, M.P., a dessert service of Coalport china on the occasion of her marriage to Mr David Keir, which took place yesterday in the Crypt Chapel, House of Commons. Princess Beatrice sent a gilt lamp, and Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, and Major General the Earl of Athlone, gave antique Chinese ornaments.

"The French ambassador sent a crocodile-leather powder compact. The Prime Minister and Mrs Neville Chamberlain gave gilt apostle-spoons and the Speaker of the House of Commons gave a Sheraton tea-caddy. Members of the Cabinet and many Members of Parliament also sent gifts.

"The bridegroom is the son of the late Rev. Thomas Keir, of Lauder and Dumfries, and of Mrs Keir, and the bride is the daughter of the late Mr W.M. Cazalet, and of Mrs Cazalet, of Fairlawne, Tonbridge, and 33 Belgrave Square..."

A wikipedia entry on Thelma Cazalet-Keir:

The Cazalet family origins were Huguenot.
