Hugh Courtenay, 18th Earl of Devon

September 13, 2015

HUGH COURTENAYIt is with great sadness that we report the sudden death last month of Hugh Courtenay, 18th Earl of Devon and husband of THF Patron, Lady Diana Devon.

Lord Devon attended THF fund-raising events at his ancestral home, Powderham Castle .

Hugh was particularly fond of performances by Words for Voices, whose hilarious enactments of scenes from Wind in the Willows would bring a joyous tear to his eye. THF really appreciated his kindly support.

We send our deepest condolences to all the family.
