The actor Patrick Macnee, who died 25 June, 2015, aged 93, was the suave and dapper 'Steed' in The Avengers.

Daniel Patrick Macnee was born 6 Feb, 1922, son of Daniel Macnee (c1877-1955), by his wife the former Dorothea Henry (1898-1984).  Dorothea was the daughter of Frances Hastings (1870-1945), a granddaughter of the 11th Earl of Huntingdon (1779-1828).
