Reason for asking is that I am giving a talk about the Church and would like to add a little to the talk about Lady Hesketh such as maiden name, born married, does etc.

Thank you

Hi John,

I believe her husband has a Wikipedia article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Fermor-Hesketh,_1st_Baron_Hesketh - this identifies her as Florence Louise Breckinridge, of Kentucky, daughter of John Witherspoon Breckinridge, and granddaughter of General John C Breckinridge, Vice-President of the United States. They were married in 1909 according to the article. There is a mistake in the Wikipedia article in saying that he was the 8th baronet of Ruffield - it should be Rufford, which is close to the church that was dedicated.

According to a public family tree on Ancestry, she was born in November 1881 in California, and was married on 9 September 1909 in Paris, France.

Hope this helps!
