Name That Lady, No. 7, Named !
The lady in question was/is Nancy Mitford eldest daughter of the 2nd Lord Redesdale
having read several of her books..

However I was not able to write the challenge tight enough to exclude any of her five sisters.

What got us to use these arms was an old book I ran across in my library, “Noblesse Oblige” Edited and partially written by Nancy Mitford in 1956 which is all about
U (aristocratic) and Non-U (common) English speech. An hilarious read.

Four persons guessed correctly as follows:
[1] Nancy Mitford from Elizabeth Roads, LVO, Snawdoun Herald
[2] Jessica Mitford from Liam Devlin, Unicorn Pursuivant
[3] Any of the six Mitford sisters from Professor Michael W. Ross, PhD, MD, DSc, University of Minnesota Medical School, USA
[4] Any of the six Mitford sisters from Alex Maxwell Findlater
