Successful Marriages

Albemarle's Family

In Burke's "Landed Gentry" the Cator pedigree covers several pages of small type. They were closely knit and made increasingly favourable marriages among the gentry, particularly in Ireland. Names acquired by marriage were used for roads on the estates including the Albemarle Rd (from Admiral Sir Albemarle Bertie) where the first flying bomb landed. The Bromley Record of Oct 1st 1885 has an article of the marriage of the Rev Lord Victor Seymour with Miss Cator, daughter of Mr Albemarle Cator of Woodbastwick, Norfolk at St Paul's Knightsbridge that was attended by Earls and Lords and Ladies too numerous to list.

Perhaps the most notable of such occasions was the marriage of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, when Elizabeth Cator was one of her eight bridesmaids.
