Paris - Princess Eristavi
« on: Monday 09 January 06 17:27 GMT (UK) »
Serious help needed here! I have found the address of a French princess in my grandmotheer's address book (her dates are 1889-1978). We knew there was some klink with a French princess but thought it was just family folklore. Does anyone know how I can research this or who to contact - the address nook relates from 1920s to 1950s- the entry shows that the Princess moved from a Paris address to Cap ferrat in April 1955. Any ideas at all?????????????

Hi Caroline, there are two articles in the Times for the name ERISTAVI. The first is for 1946 and is a marriage in London between the only child of the Princess Eristavi-Tchitcherine of Paris [he is named Mr Frank W Tchitcherine of Norwalk, Connecticut] and Sheila, widow of Captain Colin Pitman [only daughter of Mrs A C Ballingal of Cranmer Court.

The second is for 1962 -again a marriage- where Princess Diane Eristavi held a reception for Mr Donald Canmore Malcolm who was marrying Countess Vittorio Pietrasanta in New York.

best wishes
Margaret  :)

Thanks Margaret- that is a start! However am I going to find out why this address was in my grandmother's address book and the connection????????
I do know that my great grandmother went to the Paris Conservatoire of Music in the 1880's as a finishing school despite the fact that the family came from the East Ednd of London - my great great grandfather hasblood from his maternal line but the whole business is becoming a mystery! Any other ideas as to where I might look to resolve this one?

Not I think the same Princess because of the dates. Perhaps it was the Prince's first wife if he had one, or his mother?

Hi -I am very limited as to information I can disclose in respect of Clementine as it is a family matter. Can you tell me more about why you are researching her? Send it as a personal message to keep too much disclosure from the common post boards.
Many thanks
Caroline
