Mrs A. E. Grant (Bettine Stuart-Wortley) as a nurse, WW1 Featured Print

Mrs A. E. Grant (Bettine Stuart-Wortley) as a nurse, WW1

Mrs A. E. Grant, the former Bettine Stuart-Wortley, pictured around the time of her marriage in nursing uniform as she was doing war work at a hospital in Cavendish Square, London. She was the elder daughter of Major-General the Hon. Edward Stuart-Wortley, C.S.O., of Highclere Castle, Christchurch. The Tatler comments that it is interesting to note that the Kaiser once rented Highclere and was a great admirer of the house. He said that no such turf or trees existed in Germany, and that such a place was only possible in a country unravaged by warfare, as has been the continent. It is still likely to remain unravaged, despite the Kaiser. Elizabeth Valetta (Bettine) Stuart-Wortley (1896-1978) married Captain Allister Edward Grant, 9th Lancers at St. Margaret's, Westminster on 14 August 1917. The couple divorced in 1922, and Bettine then married Montagu Towneley-Bertie, 8th Earl of Abingdon in 1928 and was styled Countess of Abingdon. Date: 1917
