Capt Edward Charles Stafford-King-Harman (d. 1914)



On  1st 4 July 1914 Olive Packenham Mahon married  Capt Edward Charles Stafford-King-Harman of Rockingham, Co Roscommon, elder son of Sir Thomas Stafford and his wife Frances Agnes King-Harman.  Edward Charles, of the Irish Guards,  was killed in action on 6 Nov 1914 at Klein Zillebecke, Ypres, Belgium. His new wife, Olive, was pregnant at the time and gave birth to their daugher Lettice Mary Strafford-King-Harman on 10 April 1915. Olive and lettice left Rockingham and returned to Strokestown, since the Rockingham estate was entail male and could not be left to a female heir. The Rockingham estate passed to Edward's brother Lt.-Col. Sir Cecil William Francis Stafford-King-Harman.
