BAMBRIDGE George Louis St Clair =2 743 "In loving and happy memory of
George Louis St Clair Bambridge M.C.

of Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire
Born 27 Sept 1892 + Died 16 Dec 1943
Captain Irish Guards 1915-1918
Attached to Diplomatic Service 1922-1933
E'en as he trod that day to God so walked he from his birth,
in simpleness and gentleness and honour and clean mirth."

Son of George Frederick Bambridge and Ada Henrietta (née Baddeley). He became the private secretary to Alfred, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and the son of photography pioneer William Bambridge; his mother was the daughter of Major John Fraser Loddington Baddeley, an officer of the Royal Artillery and later of the Royal Gunpowder Factory, Waltham Abbey.
Following the deaths of his mother (1896) and his father (1898), Bambridge was brought up in the family of Cecil Floersheim, the husband of George's mother's sister. He was educated at Eton.
At the start of the Great War, he applied for and received a commission, initially as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Middlesex Regiment, then later as a Captain in the Irish Guards in which he served from 1914 to 1918.
He was awarded the Military Cross. Citation reads: "when the enemy, attacking in great strength, succeeded in driving a wedge into our line, this officer immediately led a counter-attack which was entirely successful, the enemy being driven back with loss and the line re-established. It was entirly due to his initiative and dash that the line was maintained." [The Times, 21 September 1918, page 4 col B].
After the Great War, he served with the Diplomatic Service as an honorary attaché in the embassies in Madrid August 1922 - resigned July 1924, Brussels October 1924, Madrid, December 1925 - resigned 1928 and Paris June 1929 - resigned 1932.
He married Elsie Kipling, daughter of Rudyard Kipling, on 22 October 1924 St Margaret, Westminster, the reception being held at the home of Stanley Baldwin, a Kipling family cousin. (Bio by Geoffrey Gillon)
      "Also of his beloved wife

born 2 Feb 1896 + died 23 May 1976
Daughter of Rudyard Kipling + Benefactress to the Nation"
[Last private owner of Wimpole]

Philanthropist. Born the second child of Rudyard Kipling and his American wife Caroline Starr Balestier. Her elder sister, Josie, died of pneumonia in 1899 while her younger brother, John, was killed in action in 1915, leaving her as the only surviving child, a role she apparently found difficult to cope with especially since her parents never really ceased mourning the lost children.
In October 1924 she married Captain George Bambridge who had served in the Irish Guards, but was at the time a British diplomatic attaché in Madrid and the couple lived abroad for some years. They would have no children.
In 1938 she purchased the 17th century derelict Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire, and spent many years restoring the 2500 acre estate to its former glory.
On January 19, 1939 she christened HMS Kipling, a 'K' Class Destroyer, saying that nothing would have given her father such immense pride and pleasure than that a ship of the Royal Navy would bear his name.
As Rudyard Kipling's only surviving descendant, she also dedicated herself to sort and list the documents which she had inherited from her parents. She purchased what additional documents she could find for sale and sought out others in private possession and had copies made.
When she died in 1976, Wimpole Hall and its Kipling archive were willed to the National Trust. In 1978 the Trust deposited the archive in the University of Sussex Library. (Bio by: Iola)
