John Buchan – First Baron Tweedsmuir, GCMG, GCVO, CH, PC.

John Buchan was born in Perth Scotland in 1875. He had an interesting and very varied life as a diplomat, barrister, journalist, historian, poet, Member of Parliament, and novelist. It is perhaps the last of these for which he is best known and for his novel The thirty-nine steps. He became a peer in 1935 as Lord Tweedsmuir on his appointment as Governor General of Canada.   If you have any views on why John Buchan chose Tweedsmuir as his title see the Section 6 - Title of Tweedsmuir page on Contents List below.
