About Ernest Aldrich Simpson

Ernest Aldrich Simpson (May 6, 1895 – November 30, 1958) was a British shipping executive best known as the second husband of Wallis Simpson, who later would marry the former Edward VIII of the United Kingdom. -------------------- The divorce papers show that he gave his wife Wallis a gentleman's divorce, in Ipswich so as to keep it out of the newspapers. His third wife was Mary Huntemuller Kirk (1896 - 1941), former wife of Jacques Achille Louis Raffray, a French-born New York insurance broker, and a daughter of Henry Child Kirk, owner and manager of the Kirk Silversmith Co. of Baltimore, Maryland, and his wife, the former Edith Huntemuller.

His fourth wife was Avril Joy Mullens (1910 - November 28, 1978), the former wife of Brigadier General Hugh Nugent Leveson-Gower, RA, a former wife of H.S.H. Prince George G. Imeretinsky, and the younger daughter of Sir John Ashley Mullens, of Manor House, Haslemere, Surrey, by his wife, Evelyne Maude Adamson. Simpson and Mrs. Leveson-Gower were married in London, England, on August 12, 1948. By this marriage he had one stepdaughter, Lucinda Gaye Leveson-Gower (born 1935, married Sir Spencer Le Marchant in 1955). Avril Simpson was killed in a car crash in Mexico.
