She noted in her journal that Vivien was in love with a Mr. Haden Guest, or
was using his "ardent attentions" to provoke Tom. Haden Guest was probably
one of the young officers Ottoline has entertained at Garsington after the
war . . . .The relationship between Vivien and Haden Guest no doubt ripened
during the period of Tom's absence in Cambridge from 26 January 1926 . . . .
There seems to be some doubt as to whether the supposed lover was Leslie
Haden-Guest (1877–1960) or his son Stephen
(1902–1974) born about a dozen years or so before and after Vivien. BTW,
Bertrand Russell was born in 1872 and Vivien in 1888.

But to finish with the family history here it is (Peter only wrote about the
The current Lord and Lady Haden-Guest:
Christopher Haden-Guest, 5th Baron Haden-Guest (born February 5, 1948),
better known as Christopher Guest, is a British and American screenwriter,
composer, musician, director, actor, and comedian. He is most widely known
in Hollywood for having written, directed and starred in several
improvisational "mockumentary" films that feature a repertory-like ensemble
cast. This series of work began with the film This Is Spinal Tap, where his
character introduces the phrase, "These go to eleven" and continued with
Best In Show, A Mighty Wind, Waiting for Guffman, and For Your
Consideration. Guest also had a prominent role as the evil, six-fingered
Count Rugen in the film The Princess Bride.
He holds a hereditary British peerage as the The 5th Baron Haden-Guest, and
has publicly expressed a desire to see the House of Lords reformed as a
democratically elected chamber. Though he was initially active in the Lords,
his career there was cut short by the House of Lords Act 1999. When using
his title, he is normally styled as Lord Haden-Guest. Guest is married to
the actress and author Jamie Lee Curtis.
Younger brother and heir presumptive:
Nicholas Haden-Guest (born May 5, 1951) is an American actor. He
primarily works as a voice-actor, but is best known for a TV role as the
principal in the NBC teen sitcom USA High.
Anthony Haden-Guest (born 2 February 1937) is a British-American writer,
reporter, cartoonist, art critic, poet, and socialite who lives in New York
and London. He is a frequent contributor to major magazines and has had
several books published.
As Haden-Guest was born before his parents' marriage, upon his father's
death the peerage passed to his younger half-brother, Christopher Guest, a
comedian, actor, writer, director, musician and Grammy Award-winning composer.
