Elizabeth Taylor In Bond’s London

Two days ago, I discovered my kindred, Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, made an album with John Barry who composed a James Bond theme. Liz is on the cover and recites a poem by Woodsworth. She also recites Pitt’s famous defense of America, and, the forming of a lasting bond. This renders Liz my ultimate muse. I dismiss the others for lack of enthusiasm. Liz created a Artistic Dynasty via Marriage Certificates. The art collector, Paul Melon, is in the Rosamond Family Tree, due to Liz’s marriage to John Warner. Her son, Christopher Wilding, married Aileen Getty, and thus is kin to Ian Fleming, who wanted Richard Burton to play Bond in the first movie.

This post is under construction. I have to sort out these videos. The first two introduced a powerful woman in the word Ian Fleming created. Music is very key to setting the mood and theme. The maker of the new Bond movie spent millions – struggling!

John Presco

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendor, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! The very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!

William Woodsworth

Dame Elizabeth Taylor is today making a rare public appearance in Britain, taking centre stage with the Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Rivalling Taylor for top billing at the Palace investiture is Mary Poppins and Sound of Music star Dame Julie Andrews.

The British actresses, who have both won Oscars, were made Dame Commanders of the Order of the British Empire in the Millennium New Year Honours List.

In the Palace ballroom, Andrews, 64, will be first to receive her insignia for services to acting and entertainment. Next (in alphabetical order) Taylor, 68, will meet the Queen and receive her Dame Commander’s brooch. Taylor is honoured for services to acting and charity, recognising her fundraising for Aids research.

The investiture – the ceremonies are now recorded for television – promises to be one of the most glittering in recent times. Rarely have two such big stars been honoured at the same investiture.

An exhibition of portraits of Dame Elizabeth Taylor opens at London’s National Portrait Gallery on Thursday, and she will be the guest of honour at a charity spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall, London, on May 26 to raise money for Aids research.

On May 24, the British Film Institute will honour her with a BFI Fellowship at a tribute dinner at the Dorchester Hotel. Another highlight of a planned series of events in her honour is the National Film Theatre’s programme of a dozen classic Liz Taylor movies, including the epic Cleopatra in which she starred with Richard Burton.

In 1957, Warner married banking heiress Catherine Conover Mellon, the daughter of art collector Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary Conover, and the granddaughter of Andrew Mellon. By his marriage, Warner accrued substantial capital for investing and expanding his political contacts. The Warners, who divorced in 1973, have three children: Virginia, John W. Warner, IV, and Mary. His former wife now uses the name Catherine Conover.[2]

John Warner married actress Elizabeth Taylor on December 4, 1976 at the Second Presbyterian Church in Richmond, Virginia. They divorced on November 7, 1982.

In such a cause, your success would be hazardous. America, if she fell, would fall like a strong man. She would embrace the pillars of the state, and pull down the constitution along with her. Is this your boasted peace? Not to sheathe the sword in it scabbard, but to sheathe it in the bowels of your countrymen? Will you quarrel with yourselves, now the whole House of Bourbon is united against you…

Richard BurtonThe good looking actor who was known for his Shakespearean roles as well as his tumultuous relationship/marriages to Elizabeth Taylor reportedly turned down the first 007 role. Author Ian Fleming specifically wanted Burton when a movie adaptation was suggested in the late ’50s, but the Welsh actor thought it was too big a risk and had demanded a fat paycheck as well.

I am looking for descendants of Philip Rosemond and Moses Morton Rosemond who lived in Guernsey County, OH in the mid-1800s. This family descended from a James Rosemond who lived in County Leitrim, Ireland in the early 1700s. Other members of this same family settled in Lanark, Ontario, Canada.


The southern Rosamond family is also said to be descended from this same family, as are the Rosamond families in Australia and New Zealand. I am trying to tie all the branches of the family together. The information on the family in Guernsey County, OH is shown below. I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has any information regarding this family.

The reference for the earlier generations of this family is the booklet “The
History of the Rosemond Family” by Leland Eugene Rosemond, 1939.

Thanks.

To discover Liz was born in Augustus John’s house, with twenty paintings on his wall, says it all. Her father was sent home to America to be John’s agent in America. Her uncle Howard was a purchaser of fine art for the American rich. He played poker with his good friend, General Eisenhower, Commander of all Allied forces. Though it appears Monica Delacroix is Bond’s mother, I see this as a code denoting Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and ‘The Rose Croix’ of the world, and, THEY made their move when Hitler put a price on the head of Empress Zita von Habsburg, whose son co-founded Pan-Europa!
