Lady Maud Hoare

Lady Maud Hoare

Lady Maud Hoare, DBE,[1] (1882–1962), née Lady Maud Lygon, later Viscountess Templewood, daughter of 6th Earl Beauchamp, was the wife of Sir Samuel Hoare and a DBE in her own right.

The following is from Time dated 28 February 1927:

"Sir Samuel Hoare, British Air Minister, and Lady Maud returned to London, last week, from a 12,000-mile round trip flight inaugurating the London-Cairo-Delhi air service (TIME, Jan. 10). For this feat she was appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE). She is the first woman ever to fly so many miles. There had been snow, rain, fog, sandstorms, but not a spare part was needed for the ship."


  1. ^ As the daughter of Frederick Lygon, 6th Earl Beauchamp, her own title took precedence over that of her husband until he was created a viscount.
