As far as I know, one (maybe two) married members of Oswald Mosley’s fascists and one became a communist and a proper GBOposhlady and did this

*additional fact: my maternal grandfather was called Oswald but changed it to Bob after the emergence of Oswald Mosley.

Fascinating

The sisters gained widespread attention for their stylish and controversial lives as young people, and for their public political divisions between communism and fascism. Nancy and Jessica became well-known writers: Nancy wrote The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate , and Jessica The American Way of Death (1963). Deborah managed one of the most successful stately homes in England, Chatsworth.

Jessica and Deborah married nephews of prime ministers Winston Churchill and Harold Macmillan, respectively. Deborah and Diana both married wealthy aristocrats. Unity and Diana were well known during the 1930s for being close to Adolf Hitler. Jessica turned her back on her inherited privileges and ran away to become a communist.[6] Jessica’s memoir, Hons and Rebels , describes their upbringing, and Nancy obviously drew upon her family members for characters in her novels. In the early 1980s, Deborah became politically active when she and her husband Andrew Cavendish, 11th Duke of Devonshire, joined the new Social Democratic Party.

The sisters and their brother Thomas were the children of David Bertram Ogilvy Freeman-Mitford, 2nd Baron Redesdale, known to his children as “Farve” and by various other nicknames. Their mother was Sydney Freeman-Mitford, Baroness Redesdale, known as “Muv”, the daughter of Thomas Bowles. David and Sydney married in 1904. The family homes changed from Batsford House to Asthall Manor beside the River Windrush in Oxfordshire, and then Swinbrook Cottage nearby, with a house at Rutland Gate in London.[7] They also lived in a cottage in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, which they used as a summer residence.[8] The siblings grew up in an aristocratic country house with emotionally distant parents and a large household with numerous servants; this family dynamic was not unusual for upper-class families of the time. The parents disregarded formal education of women of the family, and they were expected to marry at a young age to a financially well-off husband. The children had a private language called “Boudledidge” (pronounced “bowdledidge”), and each had a different nickname for the others.

On the outbreak of the Second World War, their political views came into sharper relief. “Farve” remained a conservative, but “Muv” usually supported her fascist daughters, and the couple separated in the late 1940s. Nancy, a moderate socialist, worked in London during the Blitz. Pamela remained seemingly non-political, although she was reportedly an anti-Semite.[9] Tom, a fascist, refused to fight Germany but volunteered to fight against Imperial Japan; he was killed in action a short time after arriving in Asia. Diana, married to Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists, was imprisoned in London for three years under Defence Regulation 18B. Unity, distraught over the war declaration against Germany, tried to commit suicide by shooting herself in the head. She suffered brain damage that eventually led to her early death. Jessica, a communist supporter, had moved to the US, but her husband Esmond Romilly volunteered for the Royal Canadian Air Force. He died when his bomber developed mechanical problems over the North Sea and went down.[5] In numerous letters Jessica said that her daughter received a pension from the Canadian government from Esmond’s death until she turned 18.[5] The political rift between Jessica and Diana left them estranged until their deaths. The other sisters kept in frequent contact. The sisters were prolific letter-writers, and a substantial body of correspondence still exists, principally letters between them.[2]
