From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sir Mark Alexander Lennox-Boyd (born 4 May 1943) is a British Conservative politician and a son of the 1st Viscount Boyd of Merton.

Lennox-Boyd was MP for Morecambe and Lonsdale from 1979 to 1983, and the (slightly renamed) Morecambe and Lunesdale from 1983 until his defeat by Labour's Geraldine Smith in 1997. He served as a government whip and a Parliamentary Under-Secretary in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

He is married to Arabella Parisi (born 1938), who is better known as Arabella, Lady Lennox-Boyd. They have a daughter, Patricia Irene Lennox-Boyd born 13 August 1980. Lady Arabella was born in Italy, but left to settle in England where she later undertook a course in Landscape Architecture at Thames Polytechnic, which went on to become part of the University of Greenwich.

Lady Lennox-Boyd has won five gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show (1990, 1993, 1995, 1998 and 2000) and the Best in Show Award in 1998. Over a career spanning 30 years, she has undertaken commissions all over the world, ranging from small town gardens to large historical landscapes. Her client list includes Sting (musician), Sir Terence Conran, Queen Paola of Belgium and the Duke of Westminster.
