{117} Edward IV Descents for Sir Redmond Watt (b. 1950)

Gen. Sir Redmond Watt, KCB, KCVO, CBE
(b. 1950)
Tracing the descendants of Lady Anne (née Townshend) Hudson led me to General Sir Redmond 'Reddy' Watt. He "was educated at Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford University, where he read Law. He joined the British Army in 1972 and served for 36 years before retiring in 2008. In his last appointment as Commander-in-Chief Land Command between 2006 and 2008 he was responsible for recruiting and training the Army, and preparing it for operational deployments. His early military service was with the Welsh Guards, and his operational experience was in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Bosnia. After leaving the Army he was President of Combat Stress, the mental health charity for ex-servicemen, for 6 years. He is now the Governor (Chairman) of the Royal Hospital Chelsea; a non executive director of the NAAFI and chairman of its audit committee; a non-executive director of Linguistica-Global Ltd. During 25 years playing polo, he represented Oxford University, the Army, Young England and England B. He is the President of the Army Polo Association" [Bio, Thyssen Petroleum]. He was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, then promoted to Commander in 1996. Watt became Major-General commanding the Household Division and General Officer Commanding London District in 2000, in which capacity he had a significant role in the funeral of the Queen Mother in 2002. He was appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 2004 on relinquishing his appointment commanding the Household Division. He was appointed a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath in 2008 ['Redmond Watt', Wikipedia].
Lady Suzanne (née Baggs) Watt
In 2012, he was appointed one of the 29 Deputy Lieutenants of Berkshire. To top it off, Watt's wife, Lady Suzanne 'Suzie' Watt, née Baggs, is originally from Pasadena, California, which makes me, a native Angeleno, proud.

Sir (CHARLES) REDMOND WATT of Hurst House, Berkshire, KCB, KCVO, CBE, b. 1950 Oxfordshire, son of Maj. Richard James Andrew Watt of Hurst House (1917-2002, descended from Edward IV - see Generation A16 below) and Margery Teulon Porter (b. 1920); m. 1993 Berkshire, SUZANNE DENISE BAGGS, b. 1963 Los Angeles County, California, dau. of Ralph C. Baggs of Pasadena (b. 1931) and Sally Joe Leflang (b. 1936), and has issue, one son.
