- KINSHIP: Considered illegitimate. It appeared that the Countess gave birth to a son, on 4 Nov 1881, at No. 8 Avenue Friedland, Paris, who was registered (the parents being not named) as "Guy Bertrand" and who appears, sometimes, to have been styled "Lord Guernsey." His reputed father was George Charles SPENCER-CHURCHILL, then styled Marquess of Blandford, afterwards (1883), 8th Duke of Marlborough. Nearly two years afterwards this child was, 29 June 1883, bap., under the same names, at St. Mary-le-Strand, Midx., but as son of Heneage, Earl of Aylesford, and Edith, which paternity was however subsequently disallowed by the House of Lords: see 'The Complete Peerage', vol. 1 p. 367 fn. a; in July 1885, in the case of the Earldom of Aylesford as against the legitimacy of a child b. 4 Nov 1881 in wedlock, of parties who were residing respectively in Chapel Place (Oxford Str.) and in Portugal Str. (South Audley Str.) Midx., in the months of Jan., Feb., Mar., and Apr. previous to the BIRTH: see 'The Complete Peerage', vol. 1 p. 367 fn. b.
