My name is Alastair Hume
born Leslie Graham. This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a fascinating system that allows anyone to create a private or partially public site for anyone to look at, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me. I am connecting my family line to the Home / Hume of Blackadder line in Berwick, and would love to connect my adopted line to my birth family somewhere. If anyone could help me with documentation for Robert Home/Hume's father or wife, Christian, in the beginning of the 1600's I would be extremely grateful, or how we find out which Graham family in Cumberland I am descended from.

Joan had 2 children by her first husband and 14 by her second. Four of her children died in infancy. The remainder seemed to have married well. Not all her children have their own Wikipedia Page but most of their spouses do. Joan was the granddaughter of Edward III and grandmother to Edward IV and Richard III. This is shown in her Wikipedia Page. Joan's Brother, John Beaufort, 1st Earl of Somerset, had a daughter named Joan Beaufort. She was the the Queen Consort to James I of Scotland and Regent for her son, James II. James II was the 3 times grandfather of Mary, Queen of Scots who was mother to James I/VI. He succeeded Elizabeth I. All this ties your tree to the Houses of Stuart and Tudor. If you care to do the research, you could tie your tree to the Houses of Hanover, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and Windsor. How far do you want to go? Would you like for me to add a few dozen of these names to your tree. I'm taking 11 days off for the holidays. I have the time. If so, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include Joan countess of Westmorland in the subject line. This way I'll be sure what you need.
Nathaniel's Wikipedia page has links to several people that helped him renovate the family estate at Kedleston Hall. It shows Curzon was elected as Member of Parliament for Clitheroe in 1747 which he held until 1754 when he was elected for his father's former constituency Derbyshire. In 1761 he was created Lord Scarsdale and later served as Chairman of Committees in the House of Lords.
During a person's life, a noble might be styled in many ways. While it is the usual practice to list the last style they had, you may list them all. If you do, it's better to list them by descending ranks. Thus, I believe, Nathaniel should be listed as;
Rt Hon, Sir Nathaniel Curzon, 1st Baron Scarsdale, 5th Baronet of Kedleston, MP
Normally a title has either a geographic designation or a family name i.e. The Duke of Cambridge and the Earl Spencer, but not always. Wikipedia often explains how the person became ennobled. Being called to Parliament can cause a title to be granted. I think the title Baron Scarsdale might have been by a call to Parliament and therefore does not get the normal "of" between the title and geographic designation. The Baronet title seem to be slightly shortened here from 5th Baronet Curzon of Kedleston. In that case, the "of" is used to separate the family name from the geographical and avoid confusing this baronet with another also named Curzon.
The MP at the end, of course, says Member of Parliament.
I hope this prove useful. Thank you for your time.
When you EDIT PROFILE, you see a choice of ADDITIONAL NAMES. Why My Heritage places the 4 new choices there is strange to me. The choices are Religious name, Former name, Nickname and Namesake.
Religious name could be the Saint's name a person picks for themselves at Confirmation, the name a Nun uses or a Pope.
Former name could be used for a name change, either a formal, informal or previous married name.
I believe Nickname and Namesake are mostly self evident. I tend to use Nickname for the geographical designations that history knows people by. John "of Gaunt" was John Lancaster (born Plantagenet), 1st Duke of Lancaster. His daughter, Joan "of Beaufort" was Rt. Hon. Joan Neville (born Lancaster), Countess of Westmorland, Dowager Baroness Boteler of Wem, LG. Her niece was HM Joan Stewart (born Beaufort), Dowager Queen Consort of Scotland. (Married to Jame I and regent to James II of Scotland.)
