Description: This is the house where debonair British actor Nigel Patrick (1912-1981) was born as Nigel Dennis Patrick Wemyss-Gordon. He changed his name in 1940 for the stage.
He made his debut film just before World War II broke out, but later made a name for himself in Spring in Park Lane (1948), Trio (1950), Encore (1952), Breaking the Sound Barrier (1952), The Pickwick Papers (1952), How to Murder a Rich Uncle (1957) and The League of Gentlemen (1959). But his real love was the West End stage from which he was never too far away.
He was married in St James' Roman Catholic Church to the actress Beatrice Campbell from 1951 (2 children) until her death in 1979. He passed away 2 years later.
