Peggy’s fifth capture

Here’s a photograph from the September 12 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star featuring a Scottish peer who was possibly about to marry again.

The “Peggy de Joyce” mentioned here is almost certainly Peggy Hopkins Joyce, who had been married four times by 1928 and was single at the time this photograph was taken. (She has appeared in this blog before.) But David Carnegie, the 11th Earl of Northesk (1901-1963) did not marry her – he married Elizabeth Vlasto in 1929.

The Earl won a bronze medal in the 1928 Winter Olympics in the skeleton event. During the Second World War, he served in the Intelligence Corps. He died childless; his cousin succeeded him as the Earl of Northesk.
