George Bingham, Lord Bingham Banker
George Charles Bingham, Lord Bingham (born 21 September 1967) is a British peer, the only son of Richard John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan, and his wife, the Countess of Lucan, born Veronica Mary Duncan. He has two sisters: Lady Frances Bingham (born 1964) and Lady Camilla Bloch (born 1970), a barrister who married Michael Bloch QC in 1998. They are descendants of George Bingham, 3rd Earl of Lucan, one of those responsible for the fiasco that led to the Charge of the Light Brigade. Their father disappeared in November 1974 after the murder of their nanny Sandra Rivett. It is believed that Lucan murdered Rivett in mistake for his estranged wife with whom he was involved in a bitter custody battle, though others, including his son, contest this. In articles from the BBC and the Evening Standard announcing his arrest on assault charges on 10 September 1998, George's occupation was given as merchant banker. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity Hall, Cambridge. In a Channel 4 documentary Lord Bingham claimed that he does not believe his father was responsible for Sandra Rivett's death. Following Rivett's murder in 1974, George and his sisters were raised by their mother.
