Peter Pelham, Earl of Brancaster[1] (b. circa March 1928) is the baby son of Edith Pelham and Herbert Pelham, The Marquis and Marchioness of Hexham, and the younger half-brother of Marigold.

He is the heir apparent to his father's titles and is entitled to use his fathers most senior subsidiary title. He was most likely named after Bertie’s cousin, the former Marquess of Hexham, who he was very close to.

As of 1928-1929, he is living in Brancaster Castle under the care of his nanny while his parents visit his maternal grandparents at Downton Abbey and when they subsequently travel to France to visit the Villa that his cousin, Miss Sybil Branson will inherit.
