It's in my 1993 Whitaker's in the separate section for Countesses in
their own right, which comes at the end of the Earls but before the
"1633 S. Loudoun (13th in line), Barbara Huddleston Abney-Hastings, b
1919, s 1960, m. Heir Lord Mauchline, b 1942."
Whitties has gone downhill badly in recent years but I would have
thought that the title would be in there somewhere.
