Happy Birthday to Captain Elworthy!
According to the character bio that I wrote when I started making the series, David William James Elworthy was born on this day in 1979. He was the only son of George Elworthy, Earl of Middlemarch, and his wife, Eleanor Elworthy, Countess of Middlemarch. As heir apparent to his Father’s Earldom, Elworthy was given the Courtesy Title of Viscount Blakeney – which he holds to this day, but rarely uses in day-to-day life.
This makes Elworthy 29 today (making him 3 years older than me!).
