The July 26 1930 edition of the Toronto Daily Star proved to be a rich source of blog posts! Here’s the first one: a photograph of a young woman from a noble family who was about to marry an Italian butler. This was so controversial that it appeared on the front page!
When I searched, I discovered that apparently the marriage did not go through: Ms. Stourton, who passed away in 1992, married Frédérik Ramon de Bertodano, the 8th Marquis de Moral (who, presumably, was not a butler). He apparently was recruited to spy for the Allies in World War II, but wasn’t very good at it.
I could find out nothing about Fiovanti del’Agnese, possibly because his name might have been misspelled. Maybe he went back to butlering.
