      Text: Jeremy Joseph Fry, who died in his sleep, 18 July, 2005, at his home in
      Tamil Nadu, India, formely of Widcombe Manor, near Bath was a close
      friend of the late Princess Margaret and the Earl of Snowdon, and stood
      sponsor at the christening of the couple's son, Viscount Linley.

      Fry, member of a landed gentry family, was a company director; one of
      his first companies was Rotork Engineering. In recent years he had
      lived in India having built a palace in Kerala, he transfered it brick
      by brick to Tamil Nadu.

      Some controversy surrounded his relationship with Margaret & the then
      Antony Armstrong Jones. On 19 March, 1960 Buckingham Palace announced
      that Fry was to be best man at the wedding of Armstrong Jones and the
      Princess at Westminster Abbey on 6 May. Just a few weeks later, on 6
      April 1960, the press revealed that Mr Fry had _stood down_ from the
      role as best man. The palace stated that Mr Fry had stood down because
      of illness (a recurrence of jaundice), but the real reason was a
      conviction at Marlborough Street Magistrates Court, London, in 1952,
      for which he was fined 2. He had pleaded guilty to a "minor offence".

      Jeremy Fry married Camilla Grinling, an artist, daughter of landscape
      painter Geoffrey Grinling, and had 4 children, including sons Francis
      and Cosmo Joseph, and a daughter, Polly (born in May 1960). The
      marriage ended in divorce in 1967.

      Recent reports state that the abovementioned Polly recently had a DNA
      test which proved that Lord Snowdon was her father. She was said to
      have started to call Snowdon _Pops_, but Fry himself was quoted: _I
      have never heard such nonsense_.

      In June 2000, he was a guest at the ball at Windsor Castle held to mark
      the birthdays of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, Princess Margaret,
      the Princess Royal, the Duke of York, and Prince William of Wales.

      Fry's son, Cosmo, married in 1982 (div 1986) Lady Cosima Maria
      Gabriella Vane-Tempest-Stewart, officially the daughter of the 9th
      Marquess of Londonderry, but in reality the daughter of Robin
      Douglas-Home (of the Earls of Home) who had been a love of Princess
      Margaret before his suicide in the 1960s.
