The Ackland-Allen family of St. Hilary Manor and Elgiva's maternal ancestors, the Bearcrofts, are well documented in The Longcrofts: 500 Years of a British Family by James Phillips-Evans (2012). Frank married Lady Katherine Sackville ('Kitty') in 1946 and they had three children, the youngest of whom, Belinda, is married to television broadcaster David Dimbleby.
