About John Francis Godolphin Osborne, 11th Duke of Leeds

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Osborne,_11th_Duke_of_Leeds

John Francis Godolphin Osborne, 11th Duke of Leeds (12 March 1901 – 26 July 1963) was a British peer.

He was the son of Sir George Godolphin Osborne, 10th Duke of Leeds and Lady Katherine Frances Lambton. He succeeded to the title of 11th Duke of Leeds and its subsidiary titles on 10 May 1927.

Despite inheriting half a million pounds after tax from his father at the age of twenty-six in 1927, he put his Hornby Castle estate on the market in 1930 and spent the rest of his life on the French Riviera. Hornby Castle, bar one gutted wing, was demolished the following year.

Family

He was married three times:

Irma Amelia de Malkhozouny, on 27 March 1933. They divorced in 1948.

Audrey Young, on 21 December 1948. They divorced in 1955.

They had one daughter, Lady Camilla Dorothy Godolphin Osborne (b. 14 August 1950): Camilla married 1) Julian Brownlow Harris and 2) the gossip columnist Nigel Richard Patton Dempster (m. 1977 – div. 2002)

Caroline Fleur Vatcher (1931-2005), daughter of Colonel Henry Monckton Vatcher of Jersey, on 22 February 1955.

Since the 11th Duke died without male issue, his titles passed to his cousin D'Arcy Osborne, 12th Duke of Leeds, the last holder of these titles.
