About me


My name is Lord Robert Louis Dimbelby-Smyth, Fourth Earl of Farnsworth. I don’t actually know where Farnsworth is of course, but I believe it is somewhere “up north”. A frightful place by all accounts, but that’s by-the-by.

For those who don’t know me, I am the only son of Edward and Elizabeth Dimbelby-Smyth. They died ten years ago in a boating accident off the South of France leaving me the sole heir to the family estates and business interests. I say interests, but I find it all frightfully boring.

Now I am sure that the more observant of you will have spotted that the picture on this page is not actually me. That was my nephew Nigel’s idea. He seemed to think it was not such a good idea to have real pictures of myself on the internet, so I picked someone who likes a little like me, but obviously not quite as sophisticated or good looking.
