John Sjovald Hoseason CUNYNGHAM-BROWN
 
164 John was born on the Isle of Wight, although the family normally lived in Paris at this time, where John's father was lecturing at the Sorbonne. As a result of laws governing nationality at the time, it appears that due to his parent's wanderings, he needed to be born in Britain in order to become a British subject, and the Isle of Wight was as far as his mother made it before he was born. He was unmarried and lived in Penang. He wrote his autobiography, called "Crowded Hour", from which some family details have been obtained. In this book he also gives the early "history" of the Hoseason family, but this is grossly inaccurate. He was friendly with William Sandford Hoseason, and other moneyed members of the family. John Sjovald Hoseason CUNYNGHAM-BROWN

166 Legend tells that the 27-year-old Robert de Brus was a handsome young man participating in the Ninth Crusade. When Adam de Kilconquhar, one of his companions-in-arms, fell in 1270, at Acre, Robert was obliged to travel to tell the sad news to Adam's widow Marjorie of Carrick. The story continues that Marjorie was so taken with the messenger that she had him held captive until he agreed to marry her, which he did in 1271. However, since the crusade landed in Acre on 9 May 1271, and only started to engage the Muslims in late June, the story and his participation in the Ninth Crusade are generally discounted. Robert DE BRUS, 6th Lord of Annandale
 
167 Robert V de Brus (Robert de Brus), 5th Lord of Annandale, was a feudal lord, Justice and Constable of Scotland and England, a Regent of Scotland, and a leading competitor for the Scottish throne in 1290/92 in the Great Cause.  Robert DE BRUS, 5th Lord of Annandale, Lord of Ireby

170 The Chevalier Ambroise de l'Étang was Page of Honour to Queen Marie Antoinette [he was two years younger than her], later an officer of the King's Guard du Corps and Superintendent of the Royal Stud Farm. He was a magnificent horseman, tall and handsome, with a courtier's polished manners and was a Chevalier of the Royal and Military Order of St. Louis. He was openly devoted to his Royal mistress, and his conduct was such that gossip reached the ears of King Louis XVI, who issued a sudden order to have the young Chevalier posted to a regiment of Saphis, stationed in Pondicherry, India. The Governor
of that province also received strict orders not to let him out of India. This action probably saved his life as the French Revolution was to follow shortly afterwards.

Thérèse had lived in India all her life and, following her marriage, she and the Chevalier settled there and raised a family of two sons, who both died unmarried, and three daughters. For a time, the Chevalier was a prisoner of the British Force which captured Pondicherry in 1793. Later he ran a riding school, combined with a veterinary business, and auction rooms for the sale and purchase of horses. In 1802, he was appointed as veterinary surgeon to the body-guard of the Governor General of Bengal and, in 1814, is heard of schooling horses for the wealthy Nawab of Oude [the Governor General was the Marquis of Hastings]. The Governor General noted the Chevalier's name in his diary as, "a man of exemplary character and most polished manners and moreover ... most highly qualified for superintending a stud farm, having held such an office under Louis XVI in France."

After the Battle of Waterloo, he was appointed assistant supervisor in one of the East India Company's studs, and from 1833 until his death, he was in charge of studs at Ghazipur, where he died aged 84.
