Marriage? Children?[edit]

Is he married? Does he have any legitimate sons? This is important but I haven't been able to find anything about it. Surtsicna (talk) 21:51, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

The Peerage News reference I linked in the article claims he's a "bachelor" and that the heir to the earldom is his brother (I've put details on the Earl of Northesk page. They don't cite their own sources on Peerage News, but as they are a bunch of genealogists, it's probably right. Although some old sources claim he's married to Jill Gomez, more recent articles such as the Guardian article say she's his "partner". There's no reference to any children, whether he's married or not. JRawle (Talk) 23:25, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks! We should mention that. However, I am not sure we can use internet forums as references. Isn't it like using Wikipedia as a reference for a Wikipedia article? I am even more worried because this is an article about a living person! Surtsicna (talk) 20:55, 2 April 2010 (UTC)
