Riverfields Mixed Comprehensive, Lower Hazlington, Charlbury College of Further Education and Vocational Studies
With no financial support behind him, the Charlbury fortune having been long since dwindled to nothing through a mixture of ill-management and disastrous investments, the 16th Earl was compelled to seek his fortune where he could find it.
A truncated education proved to be ill preparation for this, and was followed by involvement in a number of business ventures which met with varying degress of failure and calamity. On the social scene, he became a well-known figure, distinguished by his often unusual style of dress for a gentleman.
In recent years pressing debts, not least to the Inland Revenue, have led to the 16th Earl living largely abroad. However, the recent death of his father has brought him back to his native land, to the delight no doubt both of polite society and his creditors alike.
