Reasons why the image for this memorial was requested

I am writing an historical novel about the 5th Marquis of Anglesey and therefore researching his relatives. I understand he was brought up by Edith Marion Boyd from the age of 2 to 8 years of age when the 4th Marquis reclaimed him and took him to Plas Newydd.
