Lord Randolph Henry Spencer-Churchill , 12th cousin 2x removed

Lord Randolph Henry Spencer-Churchill is my 12th cousin 2 x removed. The ancestor who connect us is Catherine Neville, my 11th great grandmother. Lord Spencer-Churchill was born at 3 Wilton Terrace, Belgravia, London. He was initially independently schooled, and later went to Tabor’s Preparatory School at Cheam, London. In January 1863 he attended Eton College, in which he continued to be until July 1865. He did not stick out either at academic work or sport while at Eton; his contemporaries identify him as a vivacious and somewhat unmanageable young man. In October 1867 he matriculated at Merton College, Oxford. He had a preference for sports, but was also an enthusiastic reader, and acquired a second-class degree in jurisprudence and contemporary history in 1870. In 1871, Churchill and his uncle George Spencer-Churchill were definitely initiated in to the rites of Freemasonry, as later on his son Winston would be. In 1874 he was chosen to Parliament as Conservative member for Woodstock, Oxfordshire defeating George Brodrick, a Fellow, and afterwards Warden, of Merton College. His maiden speech, delivered in his initial session, encouraged kind comments from Harcourt and Disraeli, who published to the Queen of Churchill’s ‘energy and natural flow’.
