The Ponsonby family has played a leading role in British life for two centuries. In addition to his father's role as trusted adviser to three British monarchs, his grandfather was the Sir Henry Ponsonby – memorably played by Geoffrey Palmer in the film Mrs Brown – who was Private Secretary to Queen Victoria. His great-grandfather was badly wounded at the Battle of Waterloo, but survived to become General Sir Frederick Ponsonby. The sister who helped nurse him back to health was Lady Caroline, better known to history under her married name of Lady Caroline Lamb as the wife of the future Prime Minister Lord Melbourne and lover of the poet Lord Byron. Lady Caroline was also a key figure in the film Lady Caroline Lamb – played by Sarah Miles – in 1972. The father of the two siblings, Edward's great-great-grandfather, was the 3rd Earl of Bessborough. The man wounded at Waterloo is not to be confused with another Ponsonby depicted on film, his kinsman General Sir William Ponsonby, whose death – possibly due to not risking his best horse in battle – at the hands of a group of lancers is an incident noted in the film Waterloo.
