* Hon. Virginia Carington (daughter of Peter Carington, 6th Baron Carrington) was married to Lord Ashcombe from 1973-1979. She is now a special aide to "Their Royal Highnesses" The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall.
* Mary Elizabeth Chipps, the mother of two children from her previous marriage to the late Mark Dent-Brocklehurst, married Lord Ashcombe in 1979 at Sudeley Castle, which Lady Ashcombe partially owns with her children. The medieval fortress, situated in the Cotswolds, is the home of both Lord and Lady Ashcombe.

Lord Ashcombe's first cousin once removed, Mark Edward Cubitt, born in 1964, is the Heir Presumptive to the Barony Ashcombe.
