How little a boy to leave so
great a grief
Little David was the son of Peregrine Francis Adelbert Cust ~ 6th Baron Brownlow , close friend and Lord~in~Waiting to the Prince of Wales, who later became King Edward VIII.
Peregrine Cust stands on the right, next to Wallis Simpson.
On Sunday we discovered the small headstone of David, whilst we were visiting Belton House in Lincolnshire, which was the ancestral home of the Cust family.
A small gate beside the Orangery, led to the Parish Church of St.Peter and St. Paul's. There are some wonderful tombs there and I shall post some of them in the near future.
