My new star is born of the Internet. I will not give her name lest my enemies get to her, and turn her against me. We see our new literary muse in the top pic. She studied ballet, and now hates it. She will be Penelope Rosamund Bond, the daughter of Miss Moneypenny, who was played by Samantha Bond, whose is kin to Blowdwen John. Moneypenny was given the name JANE and thus the TWO JOHN NAMES – with ROSE! Perhaps I will have Penelope be a relative of Lady Rosamund Painswick.
“Your great great aunt is Lady Penelope Painswick.”
All this was inspired by watching my NEW MUSE on Tik Tok. She was showing off her profile and long neck. I told her she should purchase a Cameo, take pics, and send them out to casting agents because she will be hired as an extra in period productions. Everything came together. The Glass Slipper fits! A Star is born!……A Love Child!
PENNY ROSAMUND BOND
Two nights ago, in my dream, I watched a unknown man do these amazing paintings in front of me. I struggled to get to my easel, because this was my work, somehow. I believe the man was Augustus John who is my kin via my cousin, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. Augustus is kin to Ian Fleming and may have sired a hundred children in his life. These are the John Foundlings. Jean and Ian. I would love to be a part of a movies, or series on John.
Penny is an English pet form of Penelope. Penelope, in turn, is a Greek name (Πηνελοπη), most likely derived from “pēnē” meaning “weft” (a piece of woven cloth) combined with “lepō” meaning “peel” – in other words, unweave a piece of woven cloth.
Ian is of Scottish Gaelic origin and is the Scottish version of the name John. It comes from the Hebrew name Yohanan and means “God is gracious” or “the Lord is gracious.” Ian can also be spelled Iain. … Origin: Ian is a Scottish name of Hebrew origin meaning “God is gracious.”
EXTRA! I just had a vision of the opening credits to our Bond Movie. Penny does two modern dance-ballets to Love Child and Second Hand Rose. After being stricken with Parkinson’s Disease, Moneypenny is forced to quit work and raise her infant daughter on a small pension. She and Penny are living just above the poverty level in London. She spends her savings getting her daughter ballet lessons, so she can be somebody one day.
Samantha Bond (born 27 November 1961) is an English actress, who is best known for playing Miss Moneypenny in four James Bond films during the Pierce Brosnan years, and for her role on Downton Abbey as the wealthy widow Lady Rosamund Painswick, sister of Robert Crawley, the Earl of Grantham. She is also known for originating the role of “Miz Liz” Probert in the Rumpole of the Bailey series. Bond is a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Bond was born at 189 Uxbridge Street in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, to Welsh parents Matthew William Bond (1899–1951) and Blodwen (née John; 1900–1981); he had an older brother, Ifor John Bond (1929–1992), and a twin sister, Shirley. Bond’s first acting experience was at Burton Boys’ Grammar School, where he was a pupil, and in addition attended classes at the School of Speech and Drama in Burton. In 1952 he joined the Central School of Speech and Drama (then based in rooms in the Royal Albert Hall), where contemporaries included Delena Kidd, Heather Sears and Ian Hendry. In 1957, he played Sir John Marraby in the musical Zuleika, based on the novel Zuleika Dobson by Max Beerbohm.
Wife of Matthew William Bond — married 1925 in Neath, Glamorgan, Wales, United Kingdom
He married the television producer Pat Sandys (1926–2000) in 1959. The marriage was later dissolved. With Sandys he is the father of actresses Abigail and Samantha Bond, and the film and TV journalist Matthew Bond. He lived in the village of Abergwynfi in his parents’ native Wales.
Samantha Bond is the daughter of actor Philip Bond and TV producer Pat Sandys, and is the sister of the actress Abigail Bond and the journalist Matthew Bond. Bond’s paternal grandparents were Welsh. She was brought up in London, in homes in Barnes and St Margarets. She attended the Godolphin and Latymer School, and studied acting at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
From 1995 to 2002, Bond played Miss Moneypenny, M‘s secretary at MI6, in the four James Bond films with Pierce Brosnan as Agent 007: GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, and Die Another Day. The role of Miss Moneypenny is the smallest role she ever played, yet the character remains a favorite among James Bond fans. In a BBC interview, Bond remarked that she retired from the role when Pierce Brosnan stepped down as the lead. However, she later appeared as Miss Moneypenny in an advertisement for London’s 2012 Olympic bid, alongside previous Bond actor Roger Moore.
Miss Moneypenny, later assigned the first names of Eve or Jane, is a fictional character in the James Bond novels and films. She is secretary to M, who is Bond’s superior officer and head of the British Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
Although she has a small part in most of the films, it is always highlighted by the underscored romantic tension between her and Bond (something that is virtually non-existent in Ian Fleming‘s novels, although it is somewhat more apparent in the Bond novels by John Gardner and Raymond Benson). On that note, she is not always considered to be a Bond girl, having never had anything more than a professional relationship with Bond.
Although not given a first name by Fleming, the character was given the name Jane in the spin-off book series, The Moneypenny Diaries; in the films, she received the first name of Eve in Skyfall (2012), which is set in the new continuity opened by 2006’s Casino Royale, where the character spent time as a field officer before becoming secretary to M. According to the film You Only Live Twice (1967), she holds the rank of second officer in the Women’s Royal Naval Service.
The Moneypenny Diaries is a series of novels and short stories chronicling the life of Miss Moneypenny, M‘s personal secretary in Ian Fleming‘s James Bond series; it is considered an official spin-off of the Bond books. The diaries are penned by Samantha Weinberg under the pseudonym Kate Westbrook, who is depicted as the book’s “editor.” The series is a trilogy of novels, although in 2006, Weinberg also published two short stories: “For Your Eyes Only, James” and “Moneypenny’s First Date With Bond”, both of which appeared in UK magazines and were republished in September 2020 as a free ebook.
An authorised book?
Although it has since been announced as an official book from Ian Fleming Publications, the holder of the literary rights to James Bond, there was some confusion and even deception prior to release as to whether the book was actually authorised by them.
The trilogy had originally been touted as the secret journal of a “real” Miss Moneypenny and that James Bond was a possible pseudonym for a genuine intelligence officer, the idea of which was perhaps influenced similarly to John Pearson‘s 1973 authorised biography of James Bond. James Bond: The Authorised Biography of 007 was based on the obituary in Ian Fleming’s You Only Live Twice in which Fleming hints that Bond is perhaps a real man.
An investigation by The Sunday Times into whether or not The Moneypenny Diaries were in some way real forced John Murray publishers to admit that the novel was in fact a “spoof”. Prior to the admission, Kate Westbrook was said to be niece of the “real” Jane Moneypenny and that the diaries were discovered after her death in 1990. It was also claimed that Westbrook was a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, however, the college replied stating no such person was in employment there. In an interview, Weinberg revealed that the ‘Kate Westbrook’ subterfuge stretched as far as her wearing a wig and coloured contact lenses for media interviews and at the launch party.
The novel was officially recognized as an authorised book from Ian Fleming Publications on the day of the book’s publication in the UK, October 10, 2005. A side-effect of the deception resulted in a delay in this book finding an American publisher.
In Ian Fleming‘s first draft of Casino Royale (1953), Moneypenny’s name was originally “Miss ‘Petty’ Pettaval”, which was taken from Kathleen Pettigrew, the personal assistant to MI6 director Stewart Menzies. Fleming changed it to be less obvious. Other candidates for Moneypenny’s inspiration include Vera Atkins of Special Operations Executive; Paddy Ridsdale, a Naval Intelligence secretary; Joan Bright Astley, whom Fleming dated during World War II, and who was noted for giving a warm and friendly reception to senior officers who visited her office to view confidential papers; and Joan Howe, Fleming’s red-haired secretary at The Times who had typed the manuscript of Casino Royale. The BBC has used the term “Fleming’s Miss Moneypenny” when referring to Jean Frampton, who typed out the manuscripts for Fleming’s later works and made plot suggestions to him, even though the two never met.

Augustus John was a Welsh painter known for his portraits and murals.
Early in 1901, the famous artist Augustus John married his first wife, Ida Nettleship (1877–1907); the couple had five children.
One of his sons (by his first wife) was the prominent British Admiral and First Sea Lord
- Sir Caspar John.
- Romilly (1906–1986) was in the RAF, briefly a civil servant, then a poet, author and an amateur physicist.
After his wife’s death in 1907, Augustus John’s mistress Dorothy “Dorelia” McNeill, a Bohemian style icon, became his partner; they lived together most of the time from 1904 until his death and had two children, but never married.
- Poppet John (1912–1997), John’s daughter by Dorothy, married the Dutch painter Willem Jilts Pol (1905–1988).
- Vivien John (1915–1994) was a notable painter.
Willem Pol’s daughter was
- Talitha Pol (1940–1971) by an earlier marriage to Arnoldine Adriana “Adine” Mees (1908–1948). (Thus, Talitha was step-granddaughter of both Augustus and Dorothy). Talitha was a fashion icon of 1960s London, who married billionaire oil heir, John Paul Getty Jr.
- Gwyneth Johnstone (1915–2010), by musician Nora Brownsword, was an artist.
- Amaryllis Fleming (1925–1999), who became a noted cellist.
Another of John’s sons, by Mavis de Vere Cole, wife of the prankster Horace de Vere Cole, is the television director
- Tristan de Vere Cole.
Augustus John’s promiscuity gave rise to rumours that he had fathered as many as 100 children.
Cole is believed to be the last-surviving illegitimate son of the painter Augustus John (1878–1961). His mother, Mavis Cole, met John at the Café Royal in 1928, and agreed to model for him. In 1931 she married Horace de Vere Cole, a well-known Edwardian practical joker, then in 1932 became the mistress of Augustus John. Cole was brought up in the John household at Fryern Court, Fordingbridge, from the age of 18 months, partly by his mother, and then later by Dorelia McNeill.
