Peter Duncombe, 6th Baron Feversham
Charles Anthony Peter Duncombe, 6th Baron Feversham (3 January 1945 – 29 March 2009) was a British nobleman and writer.
Feversham was born in Hampshire on 3 January 1945. His parents were Colonel Anthony John Duncombe-Anderson and Gioranna Georgina Valerie McNalty. He was born Charles Anthony Peter Duncombe-Anderson, but on 12 March 1954 changed his name to Charles Anthony Peter Duncombe by deed poll. He was educated at Eton College and then trained as a barrister, before going into journalism. He published a novel, A Wolf in Tooth, and a coffee table book Great Yachts.
Feversham inherited his peerage from his fourth cousin the 3rd Earl of Feversham (who was also the 5th Baron Feversham) in 1963. The earldom was a later creation than the barony and became extinct on the 3rd Earl's death. The 3rd Earl and 6th Baron were both great-great-great grandsons of Charles Duncombe, 1st Baron Feversham.
Beginning in 1985, Feversham restored Duncombe Park as a family home after it had been used as a girls' school since the 1920s.
