    (September 15, 1954-January 10, 1999)
    Born in Bury St. Edmunds, England, United Kingdom
    7th Marquess of Bristol
    Half-brother of Victoria Hervey and Isabella Hervey
    He hated that the public could visit the family home, Ickworth House (which his father had donated to the National Trust while retaining the right for him and his heirs to live in the house), and would yell 'Fucking peasants! Fucking National Trust!' at tour groups.
    Despite being openly gay, he married Francesca Fisher in hopes of producing an heir (1984).
    The marriage broke up within three years over his twin addictions to freebase cocaine and rent boys.
    He spent five months in prison for refusing to attend court-ordered rehab and travelling to France instead (1983).
    He served seven months in jail in Jersey for cocaine possession and drug trafficking (1987-88).
    He once flew a helicopter while snorting cocaine off the map he using for navigation.
    He avoided traffic congestion on the M11 motorway by driving on the shoulder at 140 miles per hour.
    He unsuccessfully sued his father's estate after being cut out of the will.
    He blew through a fortune of £35 million, leaving an estate of £5,000 (most of which went to funeral expenses).
    His father, Victor, the 6th Marquess of Bristol, was emotionally distant, with Anthony Haden-Guest saying of Victor, 'He treated his son and heir with indifference and contempt.'
    He came back to the family home one weekend to find that his father had sold off its contents.
    His father tried unsuccessfully to have him declared illegitimate so he would not inherit the Marquess title.
