Arthur Addington dead at 76

HSH The Prince of Lippe (who died earlier this year) and Arthur Addington.  
Most of my readers will have heard of Arthur Addington, who died today at his home at Harpenden, Hertfordshire.  He was a retired banker, who worked for NatWest for many years.  Thanks to Arthur, I had a NatWest account for many years, where I could deposit my sterling payments for articles that were published in UK magazines.

Arthur was one of the foremost royal genealogists.  He spent many years researching the descendants of King James VI & I, which lead to the publication of his seminal work, Royal House of Stuart: The Descendants of King James VI of Scotland, King James I of England, published in 1969.

The book was published in three volumes, and is considered one of the masterful works of royal genealogy.

Arthur Addington was 76 years old.   [Thanks to Ted Rosvall for allowing me to use this photo.]
