The Mitford family is an aristocratic English family, whose principal line had its seats at Mitford, Northumberland. Several heads of the family served as High Sheriff of Northumberland. A junior line, with seats at Newton Park, Northumberland, and Exbury House, Hampshire, descends via the historian William Mitford (1744–1827) and were twice elevated to the British peerage, in 1802 and 1902, under the title Baron Redesdale.

Peter Ashley Greenwell, composer and pianist: born Hampton-in-Arden, Warwickshire 12 August 1929; died Denia, Spain 4 June 2006. In 1971 he was nominated for an Oscar for his music for Ken Russell's film The Boy Friend. His music for The Mitford Girls (1981) was a success but latterly he had devoted himself to cabaret-style performances. In 1995, he played at Chichester in David Kernan's Noël Coward/ Cole Porter entertainment Let's Do It, and the following year opened his one-man show A Talent to Amuse, a tribute to Coward, at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Composer and pianist with a flair for the songs of Noel Coward. He had collaborated for several years with the late Caryl Brahms and Ned Sherrin when their musical The Mitford Girls at Chichester Festival Theatre was being auditioned for the West End. "Where do you sing as a rule?" asked Deborah, the Duchess of Devonshire (herself a Mitford) at rehearsal. Greenwell answered simply: "Nowhere. Well, you should!" replied Deborah. This led to Greenwell's first stage appearance in April 1984 in Noel, a charity performance in honour of Coward at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. In it Greenwell sang and played Coward songs.

Performer: Peter Greenwell. Label: Silva Treasury. There are still other expert Coward pianist/singers in the business, notably Steve Roads and Richard Rodney Bennett, but Greenwell alone can tell stories of working for Noël at the end of his life, which give the concert a charmingly personal touch. The other Coward CD is The Grand Tour, faintly misleadingly billed as ‘The Ballet Music of Noël Coward’: there are, in fact, two ballet scores here, only one of which he ever wrote as such.
