Heiress of father, her brother having predeceased their father.
I believe she met her future husband Sydney Russell skiing in Switzerland.
Did she meet her future Scottish husband through the fact that her father Cecil had been ADC to a Scottish officer?
Capt Cecil Fetherstonhaugh was ADC to Maj Gen Alec Elliott in Scotland, who was uncle to Meriel Fetherstonhaugh. Cecil resigned the post to ?live amongst his own people? at Bracklyn.
