Reference Code: GBR/0014/BLND 6

Scope and Contents

From the Fonds:

The archive consists mainly of family correspondence. It is possible from his correspondence to trace Sir Nevile's life from his time at Cheam through his studies at Eton and King's College, Cambridge and his career in the Diplomatic service to his retirement and beyond. Although the collection mainly comprises family letters, within these some reference is made to Foreign Office matters. The family correspondence and other personal papers are contained in Sections 1 - 8 and are, with the exception of the miscellaneous section 8, in chronological order. Section 9 consists of letters, reports and other papers which specifically relate to Foreign Service business. The final contains speeches made by Sir Nevile.
