The area is distinctly grey. Arthur's parents were Charles Doyle and Mary Pack. Charles in turn was the son of John Doyle and Marianna Conan.

"Arthur was the third child, and the name Conan was inserted at the behest of Charles Doyle's uncle and Arthur's godfather, Michael Conan, who insisted that he be commemorated at the boy's christening."

Conan Doyle, by Michael Coren (1995)

I believe his second wife took Conan Doyle, though, as did Kingsley, his son.

H, P & F respectively, Brinsley le Pour Trench is giving me a few problems but I think Bin is appropriate.

William Francis Brinsley le Poer Trench should of course be under "C" as his title was Earl of Clancarty. After all, you would look up SF's good friend the Duke of Westminster under "W", even though his surname is Grosvenor.

Will S.F. lose all credibility now that he hangs out with the Duke of Westminster?

A bit like Ben Elton when he collaborated with
Andrew Lloyd-Webber.

Ah there's another one I forgot to mention in the untouchables thread.
