Swallows and Amazons: Gerald Grosvenor the 6th Duke of Westminster (died August 9) was bought up in Ulster, living on the only inhabited island in Lough Erne. He was closest to a keeper, not his “somewhat distant” parents and reflected that “My childhood was the nearest thing to Swallows and Amazons one could possibly imagine .... There wasn’t one unhappy moment. I thought I’d spend the rest of my life there.” But at 15 his father inherited the title and they moved to Eaton Hall in Cheshire (quoted in the Times obituary; reprnted in the Dominion Post, Wellington NZ which is owned by Fairfax Media, so uses overseas obituaries from the Times, the Telegraph Group or the Washington Post).
