Hugh John Vaughan Campbell, 6th Earl Cawdor (6 September 1932- 20 June 1993), was an aristocrat and land-owner.

Campbell was the son of John Campbell, 5th Earl Cawdor (and thereby, through his father's mother's descent from William Bentinck, 2nd Duke of Portland, he is a sixth cousin to Charles, Prince of Wales) and Wilma Mairi Vickers. He studied at Eton College, Magdalen College, Oxford and the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester. [1]

He held the office of High Sheriff of Carmarthenshire in 1964. Although his ancient title is of the Scottish nobility, he lived at Golden Grove, Llandeilo, in Wales, until his father's death in 1970 meant he inherited the family estates in Scotland. [2]

Marriage and family

Lord Cawdor married, firstly, Cathryn Hinde, on 19 January 1956. They had five children, including Colin Campbell, 7th Earl Cawdor. One of his daughters, Lady Elizabeth (Liza) Campbell, published her memoir of him in 2006, called Title Deeds: a Work of Friction.

Lord Cawdor and Cathryn Hinde divorced in 1979.

He married, secondly, Angelica Countess Lazansky von Bukowa on 28 December 1979. She is an advocate for organic gardening and farming. [3]

The 6th Earl caused controversy by leaving Cawdor Castle to his second wife rather than his heir. [4]
