Melville Amadeus Henry Douglas Heddle de La Caillemotte de Massue de Ruvignés, 9th Marquis of Ruvigny and 15th of Raineval (25 April 1868 - 6 October 1921), 9th Marquis of Ruvigny and 15th of Raineval, president of the Legitimist Jacobite League of Great Britain and Ireland, a genealogist, and author.
He was born in London, 25 April 1868 to Colonel Charles Henry Theodore Bruce de Massue de Ruvignés, soi-disant 8th Marquis of Ruvigny and 14th of Raineval, a native of Switzerland, and Margaret Melville (née Moodie), daughter of George Moodie, of Cocklaw and Dunbog in Fife, Scotland. Ruvigny's grandfather Captain Lloyd Henry de Ruvynes, an Irishman of French origin, changed his name to "de Massue de Ruvignés", because of his descent from a daughter of Henry de Massue, 1st Marquis de Ruvigny et de Raineval.
On 30 August 1893 he married Rose Amalia Gaminara, daughter of Poncrazio Gaminara of Tumaco, Colombia, by his wife, Doña Amalia Cabezas, daughter of Don Felipe Cabezas, LL.D. of the University of Quito, Ecuador.
Melville was President of the Legitimist Jacobite League of Great Britain and Ireland 1893-1894 and again in 1897. He was made a Knight of the Order of Charles III in 1898 by the Spanish Carlist claimant Don Carlos, Duke of Madrid, known as "Carlos VII".
He was a prolific author of genealogical works, one of the leaders of the Neo-Jacobite movement, and a committed member of the Roman Catholic Church, which he joined in 1902. He died at a nursing home in London on 6 October 1921 and was succeeded by his second son, Charles, Comte de la Caillemotte, his first son having died unexpectedly shortly before the first World War.
