Lady Fitzroy-Herbert-Fitzroy popped into my head today and now she won’t go away. I don’t know where she comes from, I don’t know who she is. I am sure I’ve never met her, but there she is.
Like a long-lost song, with a tune you remember, but the lyrics are long forgotten. I need a Spotify for names, a musical reminder.
Lady Fitzroy-Herbert-Fitzroy surfaced in the early hours, just before I properly woke up, and I know she will irritate me all day. Where did she come from ? Where and when will she go ?
I know, I’ll Google her and find a thousand Fitzroy-Herbert’s. Perhaps she invented SHERBERT ?
There were Herbert’s at school, maybe that’s where she’s from. Although, they were called Right-Herberts.
So Google, here we go. Get me out of this miserable mystery. What is this accidental mental history?
According to Google there are only two Fitzroy-Herberts living in the UK and they both live in Cardiff. There’s a connection with my history, at least she could be Welsh. I wonder what happened to the other Fitzroy? Any way I am sure it’s not them. Maybe it’s an ancestor?
There is a Fitzroy-Herbert in the Victorian era, who was an architect with a very large practice, so there’s another connection, but I have never heard of him, or her.
Then, there is the well-known politician, William Fitzroy-Herbert. Although, not so well-known now as evidently he was in the 1830’s. Could he have been married to Lady Fitzroy-Herbert-Fitzroy ?
I guess I will just have to leave it for another day, before I Google my life away 🙂
