Joan Emlyn

Joan Emily Mary Thynne (1872-1945) married Hugh Frederick Vaughan Campbell, 4th Earl Cawdor (1870-1914), also called Viscount Emlyn, in 1898 at Westminster Abbey. He was a decendant of MacBeth and believed in homeopathy, which can't have been much help as he died aged 43 y. In 1911 she became Countess Cawdor of Castlemartin.
